You don’t have to speak the language to understand the meaning of Oktoberfest—you just have to join the party.

When people call Oktoberfest “The World’s Biggest Party,” they ain’t just whistling Bayernhymne. Millions flock to Munich each year for the Bavarian ode to beer, swilling and celebrating from the third weekend in September through Oct. 3.

But if you can’t make the next flight out to Theresienwiese, (“Teresa’s Fields,” the original and still current site of the 201-year-old festival), check your local listings. Countless Oktoberfests both great and small—even a famously non-alcoholic one in a “dry” Alabama county—are keeping their beer tents full this season and serving up some seriously köstlich food inspired by the Rhineland.
