Oktoberfest Zinzinnati USA countdown begins
Less than two weeks from now, Oktoberfest Zinzinnati USA, presented by Sam Adams, kicks off with Sneak Peek Friday starting at noon on Fountain Square! It’s time to start planning your weekend! Between the Opening Ceremonies (including keg tapping!), World Bratwurst Eating Championship, and the Samuel Adams Stein Hoisting Championship, there’s hardly time to enjoy all the authentic German beer. Just kidding! Of course Oktoberfest-Zinzinnati would not be complete without mugs of frothy German beer for all.
And for those preferring their drinks a little less frothy, check out the all new wine tastings on Fountain Square. There will be four opportunities to participate, two on Saturday September 17 and two on Sunday September 18. More info
Returning to Zinzinnati USA this year is the special Sneak Peek Friday from noon to midnight on Fountain Square, featuring the John Morrell Running of the Wieners contest, the Gemuetlichkeit Games (including the Beer Stein Race and the Beer Barrel Roll) along with German food, music and ice cold beer. And of course, who can forget the Oktoberfest favorite: the World’s Largest Chicken Dance. Join the thousands dancing along to celebrate North America’s largest Oktoberfest!
