Coming September 15, 2017. It’s the second largest Oktoberfest celebration (after the original in Munich, Germany, of course) and America’s largest Oktoberfest! More than half a million people descend on Cincinnati, Ohio to celebrate German heritage, beer, food, and more. There’s 3-days of live entertainment on 9 stages, 9 bier gartens and fest tents serving 90 varieties of beer and delicious food, the World Brat Eating Championship, and the ever popular Running of the Wieners. Not familiar with the Running of the Wieners? It’s a race with 100 dachshunds, outfitted in hot dog bun costumes no less, running about 75 feet to their owners at the opposite end. Come grab a beer and cheer on your favorite doggy to see who will be awarded top dog!
