The Oktoberfest Munich 2020 cannot take place because of Covid-19. The Oktoberfest will have to be cancelled in 2020 due to the Corona Pandemic.
Soder announced this today, April 21, 2020, in a joint press conference with Munich's Lord Mayor Dieter Reiter.
The Oktoberfest 2020 should actually take place from September 19 to October 4. About six million visitors from all over the world were expected.
In times of Covid-19, however, the danger of infection in the mostly crowded beer tents and the many people in the streets and alleys on the Theresienwiese would be too high.
"The risks are simply too high": Oktoberfest 2020 had to be cancelled
