Zicke Zacke! Zicke Zacke! Hoi! Hoi! Hoi!

People chant this in a call-and-response manner throughout the fest grounds. This phrase is essentially a German drinking toast.

 

Prost!

“Prost!” – Let’s All Say “Cheers!” in English.

 

Lederhosen

Lederhosen are the traditional Bavarian shorts-and-suspenders worn by men during Oktoberfest.

 

Dirndl

dirndl is the women’s equivalent to lederhosen. The dirndl is also based on traditional Bavarian-Alpine attire.

O’zapft is!

Although you won’t be as likely to hear this phrase, it’s still important in the Oktoberfest lineup. This phrase means “it’s tapped”, and is usually exclaimed when the first keg of beer is tapped, marking the start of the festivities – Let’s Get on THIS ONE!

 

 

 

 

 

Bier

This one is pretty obvious right ?

With this new vocabulary in hand, grab your dirndls and get out to the fest grounds! Enjoy the polka, the brats, and other Oktoberfest fun.

Don’t forget to stay safe, stay smart, and make some good memories. Prost!
