When it comes to German beer festivals, everybody always talks about Oktoberfest in Munich. But wait, there's more! The Stuttgart Beer Festival, called Canstatter Wasen, draws up to 4 million every year - what started as an autumn fair in 1818 quickly became one of the leading beer festivals in Germany, second only to Oktoberfest.
Celebrate autumn with Swabian food, regional beer and wine, and bring the family for Oompah bands, parades, roller coasters, and the world's largest mobile Ferris wheel.
When: September 28 - October 14, 2010
