Tenerife’s Oktoberfest

As there are many Germans expats living in Tenerife, their beer festival tradition was soon adopted on the island. The first Tenerife Oktoberfest took place in 1973, when the members of the Center for Initiatives and Tourism of Puerto de la Cruz decided to invite a Bavarian orchestra from the city of Leinach, to give a series of concerts in Puerto de la Cruz. Ever since then, the Oktoberfest experience has been repeated every year, which shows an interesting cultural exchange between the local population and the German colony living in the north of Tenerife.
