On October 5, for the third consecutive year, the city will mark Oktoberfest, the world-famous beer festival that is one of the most important events on the German calendar.

San Miguel de Allende’s version of the event will be held in the Instituto Allende’s gardens from 1pm until midnight. The festival is a joint effort of the municipal government and the San Miguel Tourism Council. Some 800 people are expected to attend.

Oktoberfest Director Irma Dena Villanueva gave thanked municipal authorities as well as the German companies in the Polígono Empresarial, mainly Behr Hella Thermocontrol (BHTC), RAFI Syscom México, and Langer. She expects the event to continue being a success in the city and in the state of Guanajuato.

“We are very proud to be able to support this type of event, this time with promotion and publicity, and we are also very happy that it joins the ‘Zero Plastic, More Life’ and ‘Here No!’ campaigns [in town], because we do not hold events here that cause harm or discomfort,” said La Cámara Nacional de la Industria de Restaurantes y Alimentos Condimentados (CANIRAC),President Sergio Spinolo.

Susana Chauvet, president of the municipal Desarollo Integral de la Familia (DIF), thanked Dena Villanueva for the fact that Okotoberfest will donate 15 percent of ticket sales to charity.

“This is the third year we will receive this percentage of the ticket sales, which has helped

people to cover part of their surgeries. The support has been earmarked for people who have received eye prostheses, urgent operations, and splints, among other things,” she said.

Tickets for Oktoberfest cost 300 pesos, which includes a free Mexican beer and a raffle ticket for a balloon ride. Children get in free. Tickets are now available at San Miguel Arcángel Boutique, calle Mesones #75, through Facebook at the Oktoberfest San Miguel de Allende page by clicking the link for, and onsite on the day of the event.
