— Germania Oktoberfest — Cincinnati's original and most authentic Oktoberfest
Official Kickoff to the Cincinnati Oktoberfest season!
Since the end our Maifest, members of the Germania Society have been grooming our manicured Wiesn (event meadow), preparing our idyllic wooded picnic grove, readying our Klubhaus, and decorating our pavilion in anticipation of this year’s Oktoberfest celebration! Join us this August and stroll the beautiful Germania Park grounds surrounded by nature while enjoying traditional food, drink, and entertainment.
Our Oktoberfest features traditional German food, including our famous sauerkraut balls, our legendary Oktoberfest chicken, Schwenkbraten, Wursts, delicious German pastries, and much more! We also have a variety of German Biers, Wein, and Schnapps. Germania Oktoberfest is proudly sponsored by Warsteiner Bier.
There’s live German music all weekend, dancing, and fun for the whole family. We have carnival rides, games for kids, as well as games of skill and chance for the big kids. And we offer a wide variety of Imported German merchandise and gifts, including Steins, Trachten, and more.
Being the first Oktoberfest in the Cincinnati area each year, we are the “Official Kickoff of the Oktoberfest Season in Cincinnati.” And on Sunday afternoon (Aug 27) we will mark this kickoff with a parade of dignitaries from dozens of Southwest Ohio’s German organizations and the Tug-of-War teams, plus a very special ceremony featuring our own Bürgermeister — just before our much-anticipated Tug-of-War competition.
