It’s time for Cincinnati Oktoberfest! There are five Oktoberfests. In fact, you can Oktoberfest pretty much through the month of September. Get your fill of German food, German music, local brewery offerings and more.
Germania Society Oktoberfest
Celebrate the first Oktoberfest of the season with the Germania Society Oktoberfest from Friday, August 25 to Saturday, August 27. Whether you come for the food or the fun, there is something for everyone. Listen to German music, ride the carnival rides and play games of chance or skill. Pick up some imported gifts for friends and family not lucky enough to have their very own Oktoberfest. The Germania Society Oktoberfest is located at 3529 W Kemper Road in Cincinnati.
Mainstrasse Village Oktoberfest
From Friday, September 8 to Sunday September 10, cross the river into Covington, Kentucky for the Mainstrasse Village Oktoberfest. Check out the restored neighborhood of Mainstrasse, settled by German immigrants in the 1840s. Food, beer and music are the focus. You can tour the Carroll Chimes Clock Tower and watch the Pied Piper puppet show on the hour. Enjoy Circus Mojo’s performances and even become inspired to join the circus!
The very next weekend, September 15 through 17, head to Cincinnati’s Oktoberfest on Second and Third Streets in downtown Cincinnati. You’ll find the second largest Oktoberfest in the world, dwarfed only by the original in Munich. Great food and music and beer with the added cache of the Running of the Wieners. Where else can wiener dogs compete in their very own race?
Head back into Kentucky for the Newport Oktoberfest. Billed as the most authentic Cincinnati Oktoberfest in the area, you’ll find great food and beer on the beautiful Newport Riverfront. Admire the Cincinnati skyline and the river while you eat and drink your way to Oktoberfest heaven.
And last but not least is the Donauschwaben Oktoberfest October 6-8), located north of Cincinnati at 4290 Dry Ridge Road (Donauschwaben Park). Fill up on pit roasted Bavarian pig, chicken and sausage and enjoy 25 domestic and German beers. On Friday, they hold an opening ceremony and Trachten Parade with authentic costumes, horses and more. On Sunday, admire restored American and European cars during the car show.
