I’ve been to Oktoberfest, so for this year’s trip I didn’t need to read a million pages of festival tips to prepare. I just wanted to pick which Oktoberfest tent to go to! Since I couldn’t find the information I needed without going to a thousand websites, I thought I’d share my Oktoberfest Tents Guide so that no one else had to recreate the wheel.
