Beer, Bratwurst, and a dose of Bavarian Culture - Oktoberfest Zinzinnati

  • 22 September 2018

Oktoberfest Zinzinnati inspired by the original German Oktoberfest is a celebration you are going to love. Started in 1976, the largest Oktoberfest in the United States displays the affluent German heritage, music, culinary delights, and of course, beer. The fest has been attracting over 500,000 visitors every year to Cincinnati and here is why:

The Awesome Combo - Beer and Live Music

The fest consists of five beer gardens and multiple bars. Seemingly the never-ending supply of a wide selection of beers on taps is what intrigues the beer lovers most. Besides, all the beer gardens feature live music. The list of entertainers includes Prost, The Bavarians, Rheingold, the Cincinnati Schnapps Band, Smittie’s Schnapps Band, and likes. So have a toast with the crowd and the musicians.

Food! Delicious Food!

The Oktoberfest Zinzinnati venue on the second and third streets is going to be dotted with a wide variety of food vendors. And on the display will be some of the rarest spectacles you may ever see. Sausages, brats, sauerkraut balls, potato pancakes, cream puffs, jumbo pickles, Limburger cheese, pigtails, pickled pigs feet, soft pretzels and what not. So drop in to treat your taste buds. Park your vehicles away from the second and third streets and walk to and from the venue to keep the calories you consume in check and also avoid parking issues.

The World’s Largest Chicken Dance

Celebs from all across the country have flapped their arms and shaken their tail feathers to lead Oktoberfest Zinzinnati’s acclaimed Chicken Dance as grand marshals. This year, on Sept 21, Thane Maynard, the Cincinnati Zoo and Botanical Garden Director will be leading the quirky event. This is something you must not miss. Join in thousands of people in the World's Largest Chicken Dance and waddle to the beat.

And There Is More to It

The city of Cincinnati, along with Oktoberfest, also hosts concerts and baseball games around the same time. So you get more reasons to visit here in late September. Also, people watching is going to be another great activity for you. Don’t you think watching lederhosen-clad men, women wearing dirndls, and people wearing chickens on their head will be fun? In the past, the visitors have also spotted many movie stars, TV personalities, and writers.
