The parade of horses, carts and people in traditional dress makes its way through the city centre at the start of the Oktoberfest folk festival, which is a huge annual event in Munich. Each year, as well as the horses, around 12,000 people work at the Oktoberfest, including 1,600 waiters and waitresses. On average about 60,000 hectolitres of beer and 500,000 servings of German rotisserie roasted chicken are sold every year. The overall sales turnover amounts to about 450 million euros based on 2009 figures.
The Theresienwiese meadow where the Oktoberfest is held is 42 hectares in size. The actual main festival area is 31 hectares, with the old-style historical Oktoberfest “Oiden Wiesn” encompassing 3 hectares.
the Oktoberfest is supplied along 43 kilometres of cable through
18 partially underground electrical transformer stations. The
consumption amounts to a total of about 2.7 million kilowatt
not including the power necessary for construction and
the festival. This equates to approximately 13% of the daily
power requirement of Munich. A large festival tent needs on an
average 400 kilowatts, larger carousels and other rides need 300
kilowatts. For the supply of tents with natural gas a four
long network of gas lines is installed. The gas consumption
to 180,000 cubic metres for the kitchens and 20,000 cubic metres
heating the beer gardens.
