The Oktoberfest, German beer festival, was well organized in Morocco


Too much noise for several months and even a petition that collected more than 20,000 signatures could not prevent the organization in Morocco of Oktoberfest, a festival of beer and Bavarian culture. Organized by the German Chamber of Commerce, this celebration, which celebrates Bavarian heritage and culture, was planned for the first time in a marquee in Bouskoura in the Casablanca suburbs.

At the last minute, this party was relocated to the Royal Golf of Mohammedia, some 30 kilometers from the Metropolis and where it took place on October 28th. It was preceded by a golf tournament before the start of the actual party hosted by a famous German music group.

According to our sources, the catering, in the pure Bavarian tradition, but halal, was provided by five German chefs and three Moroccan chefs. And the beer flowed freely, like the non-alcoholic drinks made available to the participants who had to pay 1,000 dirhams each to take part in the celebration.

The organization of this party, which usually takes place in a private setting, has sparked great controversy in Morocco as alcoholic beverages are sold on every street corner. And originally, a big mistake because this festival is not dedicated only to beer, but first to Bavarian culture and traditions.
