Cincinnati's OktoberfestCincinnati Hosts Oktoberfest Zinzinnati September 17-18 2011

Roll out the barrels and tap the kegs, it's almost time for Oktoberfest Zinzinnati USA centered on Cincinnati's Fountain Square!  Now in it's 36th 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 800 BARRELS of beer consumed at this Oktoberfest!).  There's actually quite a bit of entertainment!  Bands, dancers, weiner dog races, YES, weiner dog races!  Now you know THAT has to be a blast to watch!  With seven stages of live entertainment (German music and dancing), and 30 food vendors, you can see why so many folks visit every year!
Weiner dog races!

There's actually a "sneak peek" starting on Friday (noon is the Running of the Weiners!).   The sneak peek is noon- midnight.  With German bands, food and beer, along with the Gemuetlichkeit Games (I don't know, they didn't cover that in high school German class!).



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 $5, and how much you spend on beer and food is up to you!

Saturday there's a World Bratwurst Eating Champion and Joey Chestnut will be back to defend his title!  How anyone can eat 42 brats in 10 minutes like he did last year?  The man's just not human.....

Beer Hoisting ChampionshipAlso on Saturday, the Samuel Adams Beer Hoisting Championships!  That's a skill set not everyone has!  Don't spill any!!!

And of course at noon on Sunday is the World's Largest Chicken Dance!  Really, we're not kidding!  Guinness Book of World Records and all that!  And always led by a celebrity of some sort....Weird Al Yankovic, Mini-Me, Davey Jones and more.  And just in case you don't know how it goes, here's an instructional video for you!
