Dance is one of the most popular and
most requested dances at Oktoberfest
events in California. There are over
50 Oktoberfest celebrations
throughout the state, but the
Oktoberfest with the longest season
usually is right in Huntington Beach
at Old World Village.
The Chicken Dance song, itself, was first
attributed to a Swiss musician,
Werner Thomas who played a mean Handharmonika in the 1950s. The
popularity of the song spread from
Davos, Schweiz to a global audience.
In the U.S., Chicken Dance is also
requested song at Oktoberfest
celebrations in other states, and
popular at weddings.
