Oktoberfest is fun, but I've had more fun at the local beer halls. The locals stay away from the Theresienweise with good reason. Lots of Italian young men running around trying to pinch women's butts, drunk English soccer hooligans trying to dance on the tables and Japanese tourist taking pictures of it all. Due to the crowds, you must have a seat to get a beer. It's best to tag team a table for your group so you can get food and drink and still get up to see the sights and most importantly, use the bathroom.
If you have the time, visit the Cannstatter Volksfest just outside of Stuttgart. They consider themselves to be the worlds second largest beer fest and it has a much more local flair.
