It’s only logical that the nation’s largest Oktoberfest also includes the nation’s largest chicken dance; in 1994, 48,000 individuals crowded in Fountain Square to take part, and the dance has remained a tradition ever since. The fest kicks off 11:30 a.m. with opening ceremonies and tapping of the keg. Through Sunday, Sept. 23. 11 a.m.-midnight Saturday; 11 a.m.-10 p.m. Sunday. Fifth Street from Race to Broadway streets, Downtown. oktoberfestzinzinnati.com.
