as we celebrate Oktoberfest on the last weekend of this month! On the grounds of one of Chicago's oldest churches, St. Alphonsus, this Oktoberfest rounds out Chicago's outdoor festival season with bratwurst, beer, and German music. Organized in 1810 to celebrate the marriage of Prince Ludwig to Princess Therese of Saxe-Hildburghausen, Oktoberfest has been celebrated in Munich every fall since then (with the exception of 1813).
