Oktoberfest is upon us as the first day began on September 21. And just like St. Patrick’s day, during Oktoberfest, everyone taps into their German heritage to celebrate. The German festival is a worldwide phenomenon celebrating Bavarian culture with pints and pints of beer. Here’s what you need to know about this fun and festive tradition.
Oktoberfest typically runs between 16-18 days with the last day being October 6 this year. Oktoberfest began as a wedding celebration more than 200 years ago when Bavaria’s Crown Prince Ludwig married Princess Therese of Saxony-Hildburghausen on Oct. 12, 1810. The wedding was celebrated with multiple days of drinking, feasting, and horse races. The celebration then became an annual event.
Oktoberfest celebrations can be found all over the world, but the main event is in Munich, Germany, where the first Oktoberfest was held. In addition to beer, festival traditions include traditional Bavarian music and traditional Bavarian clothing, dirndls, and lederhosen.
Here at Jarosch Bakery, we’re getting in on the celebration with our delicious German desserts, delicacies, and pastries in Schaumburg. Yes, Germany is well-known for its beer and pretzels, but their desserts don’t get the credit they deserve! You can enjoy these signature German items at your next Oktoberfest celebration:
Blitz Torte and Blitz Torte Square

Here at Jarosch Bakery, we have many different delicious treats to help you celebrate, from Traditional Irish Soda Bread to shamrock cookies.
Traditional Irish Soda Bread
Irish soda bread dates back to the 19th century when farming families would bake it to share with dinner. Instead of using yeast, this bread uses baking soda and buttermilk. This delicious Irish treat is dense and tender, with a soft inside and hard outer crust. We fold raisins into our dough for bursts of sweetness. Irish soda bread tastes delicious when toasted and buttered, and pairs well with corned beef and cabbage – a traditional Irish meal.
