The event started with reading the information about when is Oktoberfest, beer and food, history, opening ceremony and other countries, were the fest is celebrated. There was mentioned that in Cincinnati, Ohio, United States there are 500,000 participants plus visitors and in Denver, Colorado, United States there are 450,000+ visitors.

One of the participants took part in the Octoberfest in Germany. His name is Vitaliy Chemenko, who is the citizen of Vancouver, Canada and he also has Ukrainian roots. That is why the participants of the club had an opportunity to communicate with one more English-speaking person.
