Cincinnati Hosts Oktoberfest Zinzinnati September 20-22 2013

Cincinnati's Oktoberfest, the party so big two days just weren't enough anymore!  That's right, they're partying Friday, Saturday and Sunday this year!  And you know who is leading the annual chicken dance this year??  Oh myyyyy, it's Mr. Sulu, George Takei front and center leading the world's biggest chicken dance!! 

Centered on Cincinnati's Fountain Square, the location is perfect for the 100's of thousands of people that come to party every year!  Now in it's 38th year, this is the 2nd largest Oktoberfest in the WORLD!  You'll have to go to Munich if you want bigger!
German music and dancing at Oktoberfest
Featuring Beer, Brats, Beer, Metts, Beer, Creampuffs, Beer, Black Forest Cake, Beer, Potato Pancakes, Beer, Sauerkraut and Beer!

Okay, so really there's a LOT more to Oktoberfest than just the BEER! (although there is typically  more than 1,300 BARRELS of beer consumed at this Oktoberfest!).  There's actually quite a bit of entertainment!  Bands, dancers, weiner dog races (Friday at noon!!).   Enjoy the video of the Running of the Weiners:

With seven stages of live entertainment (German music and dancing), and plenty of food vendors, you won't lack for plenty to do or eat!

Oktoberbest Zinzinnati starts Friday with the aforementioned Running of the Weiners  but the real party starts at 5 p.m. (talk about a BIG Happy Hour) and goes until midnight!   Then you can be back for more Saturday (11 a.m. to midnight) and Sunday (11 a.m. to 10 p.m)!  Admission is free, parking is about $10, and how much you spend on beer and food is up to you!

Beer Hoisting ChampionshipAlso on Saturday, the Samuel Adams Beer Hoisting Championships at 5 p.m., immediately following the Chicken Dance at 4!

I want the potato cakes and creampuffs and Donald would love the beer.  Not sure we'll make it, but a girl can dream about a weekend get a way can't she?

John, Actually, you probably won't find me there!  Just too much to do while the weather is still good :)

Tammy, Just an 8 or 9 hour drive and you could be here!

Looks like a fun time for all. Certainly a bigger event than ours, also being held this Sunday September 22 - It's on my list to post about.

Hi Bliz - I've been to both Munich and Cincinnati for Oktoberfest, and I actually liked Cincinnati better - there was a lot more to do than sit in a beer garden and get wasted :)

Ah yes one of my favorite festivals of the fall is Oktoberfest. No matter where you are in the world it always comes down to beer and great food...

BLiz: If you can't go to Munich, attending Oktoberfest in Cincinnati is the next best thing!  This sounds like a blast.

Hi Bill and liz,  We definitely will have to try and get away.  It's not that far from here.  We must see the wiener dog races.

Jeff, Was pressed for time today, so time to refresh some of the annual events posts :)

Dick, We post about this every year.  Two years ago some of the purists were commenting and letting us know that Cincinnati's is not a PROPER Oktoberfest.  To each their own, Cincinnati won't lack for people having fun this weekend.

Paul, And with Cincinnati's Germanic history, they won't lack for either here!

Anita, Dick verified it for us!

Larry, I think I'd enjoy the races more than anything else!
