Willkommen to the 48th Annual
Germania Society Oktoberfest!

Cincinnati’s original and most authentic Oktoberfest.

The very first Oktoberfest, held in Munich, celebrated the marriage of King Ludwig I in 1810, and the tradition has been carried on yearly in towns throughout Bavaria. Since the mid-20th century, cities around the world — especially in the U.S. — have held their own celebrations modeled after the one in Munich. The Germania Society of Cincinnati held our first Oktoberfest in 1971, the first in the Cincinnati region.

Since the end of our very successful 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 all NEW 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 26) 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 dueling Bürgermeisters — just before our much-anticipated Tug-of-War competition.

Come share the Gemütlichkeit!
