The Qingdao International Beer Festival is now held at Tsingtao Beer Passion Square (青岛啤酒激情广场), sometimes refered to as "Qingdao Century Square (世纪广场内啤酒城)".
The motto for the Qingdao International Beer Festival reads: "Ganbei with the World!", indicating the spirit of the event. The first Qingdao Beer Festival took place back in 1991 and is usually held once a year starting the second weekend of August lasting for 16 days. Qingdao is the largest beer production base in China and the Beer Festival provides a great opportunity to show-off the city's distinctiveness. While the 195-year old Munich Oktoberfest primarily focuses on local breweries, the Qingdao International Beer Festival is open to both Chinese and foreign brew masters. More than 100 beer brands from all over the world have successfully participated at the event over the past decades.
The festival begins with the opening ceremony, followed by 16 days of beer tasting, evening entertainment and drinking competitions, concluding with the final ceremony. The Qingdao International Beer Festival is now a nationally recognized event, and successfully combines together aspects of tourism, culture and sport, while also playing a valuable role in promoting the economic interests of the city. As one of the most important international festivals in China, it has a worldwide reputation that attracts millions of people who take part every year. In April of 2006 the Qingdao International Beer Festival was celebrated as the No.1 "Top Ten Festival in China' in the category of 'Exhibition and Conference Annual Meeting of China."
