All things German (beer, Chicken Dancing, bier, lederhosen and more beer) are celebrated in one of our fair city’s defining festivals. Oktoberfest Zinzinnati has been a tradition since 1966 and offers Deutsch delights including great local microbrews, food and drink of the Motherland, dancing and a gaggle of games.
