What started in 2002 as small get-together with a few typical German dishes and German beer developed into the largest and most important beer festival in Lima over the past 16 years.
Modeled after the original in Munich, today the Cusqueña Oktoberfest in Lima is a 5-day event that keeps an important part of Bavarian culture and the Bavarian tradition of celebrating each year a huge Volksfest (folk festival) commemorating the marriage of Kronprinz Ludwig with Princess Therese of Saxe-Hildburghausen in 1810 even abroad alive.
Next to lots of German beer – there will even be a new limited edition of Cusqueña Märzen, a lager originated in Bavaria that was served during the Kronprinz Ludwigs’ wedding and since then is the traditionally Oktoberfest beer , simple Bavarian dishes such as Weißwurst (veal sausage), Frankfurter and other sausages, Hendl (roasted chicken), Schweinshaxe (pork knuckle), Kartoffelsalat (potato salad) and Krautsalat (coleslaw) are served.
Additionally visitors can enjoy typical Bavarian folk music and dance performances presented by the band Zugspitzmusik from Germany which makes the Oktoberfest in Lima so special.
