Oktoberfest 2023 : What To Expect

Each year between six and seven million people will consume 7 million liters of beer and eat half a million half chickens. They party hard and dance harder. Oktoberfest 2023 is going to be the ultimate bucket list item you need to experience! Oktoberfest 2023 will begin at 12pm on Saturday September 16th and end on Tuesday October 3rd, 2023. Each year Oktoberfest begins on a Saturday in September and typically ends on the first Sunday of October. However, as you can see here, Oktoberfest 2023 is one of those rare occasions when we get extra Oktoberfest days!

Two specific times to consider attending Oktoberfest are the opening ceremony and the closing ceremony. Both are spectacular in their own ways and equally tough to get into (but both are worth their weight in schnitzel). Not counting opening and closing day at Oktoberfest, Fridays and weekends are the toughest time to find space for your tush in a beer tent. During the week (and during the day) is going to be your best bet to easily find a seat in a beer tent. Getting into the festival and into the beer tents is 100% free.

You can expect a liter of beer at Oktoberfest to cost you about 14 euros (without tip), give or take depending on which tent you’re in. Food menu options and prices at each tent vary but expect to spend between 9€ – 30€ on a meal with a ½ chicken being around 15€.

Starbucks India Pumpkin Spice Frappuccino


Oh yeah! I love the fall/autumn specials. Granted we here in this part of the world do not have a fall season they way they have it in North America or Europe but that doesn’t mean we can’t enjoy the Pumpkin Spice Frappuccino. Pumpkin Spice Frappuccino Blended Beverage is a delicious drink that captures the essence of autumn. It’s a concoction of Frappuccinos’ velvety texture and comforting pumpkin pie spice flavors. The aroma of cinnamon, nutmeg, and cloves transports you straight to a cozy fall day.

The cup before me was a sandier colour than a regular coffee Frappuccino. Almost a pinkish hue. The texture is thick and creamy. It’s sweet but not sickly, the autumnal flavours, such as the pumpkin, nutmeg, cinnamon and caramel burst through with every sip. It’s a very pleasant and tasty concoction, that doesn’t get boring. The coldness, added sweetness and texture make it very distinguished from the regular Latte version. It might be too cold for some but I like it a lot.
