Pick a Stein, any stein!Hoist A Stein!  Cincinnati Area Oktoberfests Coming!

We KNOW it's almost September, but it's time for Oktoberfest in Cincinnati!  Yes, we know it says Oktober in the name, but if you wait until the calendar flips you're going to miss almost ALL of them!

Last weekend was the first of many for the Cincinnati (aka Zinzinnati) area!  With a HEAVY German heritage, brats, metts and BEER are a strong part of the local culture.

Now the two biggest area Oktoberfests are quite the festival, and the one on Fountain Square is recognized to be North America's largest Oktoberfest!  Do they know how to party or what??

So the first big one?  Head down to Covington Kentucky's MainStrasse Village September 9 to 11th.  Open Friday 5-11:30 p.m., Saturday noon-11:30 p.m. and Sunday noon-9 p.m.  German food, music, arts and crafts and rides for the kids!
More info at 859.491.0458 or www.mainstrasse.org.

beer and bratThe 2nd one is the granddaddy of Oktoberfests!  Oktoberfest-Zinzinnati USA!! With typical attendance pushing half a million, this is one LARGE party!  And frankly, there's too much to cover without doing a separate post dedicated solely to this one.  But one mention, in addition to everything else:  WORLD'S LARGEST CHICKEN DANCE!  It's a Cincinnati thing, you just might not understand if you're not from around here!  But quick hits on the critical info, Fountain Square, Saturday September 17  11 a.m. - 10 p.m. and Sunday September 18th 11 a.m. - 10 p.m.  More info 513.579.3100 or www.oktoberfestzinzinnati.com.

Looks like a great month to be in Cinncinati - lucky you!   I have been to the Octoberfest in Zurich, but not in Cinncinati, - wish I could be there...

Dagny, The plane flight to Cincy should be MUCH cheaper than the one to Zurich :)

Richard, That is certainly a long running festival!  Here, they jam downtown full!  500,000 people over a couple of days is a LOT of people!

Richard beat me to mentioning the very long festival done in Helen GA.  Half a million folks partying means a lot of beer getting sold (and consumed)!

The beer isn't as big a draw for me as the 'World's Largest Chicken Dance'!

Now THAT I would like to see!  :D

Anita, It certainly does!  And I'd bet a ton of metts/brats too!

Chris, Check YouTube, there's some on there!  Each year they have a celebrity of some sort lead the dance!

Bliz, I sent my son to college with a rather unique Beer-stein from Germany...with instruction to use only as a pencil holder.

Bill,

 

I have my beer-stein from an old USAF trip to Germany, that I would bring if I was in the area. The brats and beer sound like a great time.

B&L - our family is of German decent -don't let the last name fool you - my husband's Jewish - lol. We Germans love Oktoberfest and it sounds like Cincinnati is the place to be in October! Make sure you get some photos of the festivities to post so we can all live vicariously through you two!

Scott, Germany is one of those places I haven't made it to (yet!) Had a West German exchange naval officer on my ship for a bit.  An interesting guy to travel with!

Kristine, The brats we have regularly, the beer not so much :)  Probably no better place to be outside of Munich for Oktoberfest!

Oh my, that's a whole lot of beer drinking and fun!  I wonder if I could persuade my hubby to take me to the one in Helen GA?  Maybe I would run into Richard there........

Ann, 800 barrels for the Oktoberfest Zinzinnati event, and who knows how much more when you add in the other festivals!
