Is Oktoberfest worth the money?

Because I'm currently studying abroad in Sweden, one of the first things that I thought of doing was going to Oktoberfest. Unfortunately, I have class all week and will only be able to go on Saturdays and Sunday. Round trip train is about $120, not including transportation from Berlin to Munich. I'll only be able to attend the festival on Saturday. I'm not really a huge fan of beer but I do want to see Oktoberfest and whether or not it is as crazy as everyone makes it out to be. So would it be worth it to attend Oktoberfest, even for just a day?
