The construction of the Oktoberfest 2018, its 185th edition, starts ten weeks before the beginning of the festival, which is July 16. Only the Schützen-Festzelt starts its construction one week early due to the restricted available space. This year, the main focus will be on the redecoration of the Schottenhamel-Festhalle and the Winzerer Fähndl. Depending on the construction phase, between 150 and 2000 workers work at the Theresienwiese.
