    Zinzinnati Oktoberfest

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Originator of the world-famous Chicken Dance and touting itself as the nation's largest, most authentic Oktoberfest is the Zinzinnati Oktoberfest! Our Chicken Dance made it into the Guinness Book of World Records with 48,000 participants joining in the dance during the 1994 Oktoberfest (you'll see it mentioned in the 1995-1997 editions of Guinness Book of World Records)!

    Join us mid-September (usually around the time of my birthday - yay!) for the revelry at the Zinzinnati Oktoberfest! Drink huge steins o' beer, sample different regional German wines, partake of fine German cuisine and join in the Chicken Dance (which has absolutely nothing to do with the Oktoberfest - it's just a Cincinnati thing)!!

    Some of the food they'll be serving is:
    sauerkraut balls
    potato pancakes
    soft pretzels
    cream puffs
    jumbo pickles
    German potato salad
    Limburger cheese
    pickled pigs feet

    This year the event is Sept 20-21st - see ya there (I'll be drinking lots of good German wine)!

    Admission is FREE!

    Oktoberfest Zinzinnati (in mid to late September)
    It is a fun gathering of people from the greater Cininnati area celebrating their German heritage. Delicious German (and other) food & drink is available, plus live entertainment with bands, amusement rides, comedians, story tellers, plus the world's largest Chicken Dance.
