For 16 years, Richard and Brenda Netzberger delighted thousands by presenting an authentic Oktoberfest for Baton Rouge. They embraced the tradition of the harvest with Wurstel or sausage, Brezel or pretzels, Reiberdatschi or potato pancakes and Blaukraut or red cabbage. On October 12, 1810, citizens of Munich, Germany, were invited to attend the reception of King Ludwig I to Princess Therese of Saxony. The event was held at the city gates and for 204 years, Oktoberfest is a sixteen-day festival showcasing the harvest. Oktoberfests in our area include: Deutsches Haus in Kenner, Revel in the Madness in Shreveport, Cajun Village Oktoberfest in Sorrento and the Shreveport Oktoberfest. None can compare to Richard and Brenda's "Taste of Bavaria."
