Every year I have to be reminded that Oktoberfest actually starts in September. The official 2022 celebration in Munich, Germany runs from September 17th through October 3rd. Nothing wrong with getting a head start on fun.

According to CharlotteFive, there are plenty of places in the Charlotte area that will be hosting their own versions of Oktoberfest. So find some lederhosen and apologize to your liver because it’s time for beer! Check out the list below.
