Oktoberfest Zinzinnati: This Week and Every Week in Over-the-Rhine

Sprechen Sie Deutsch? Maybe not, but whether or not you speak German, you can enjoy celebrating during Oktoberfest season in Cincinnati. Who doesn't enjoy spending the day with good friends, fine food, and a cold beer? The Germans call it "Gemütlichkeit," a word that describes a feeling of comfort and acceptance that may not have an exact English translation, but a word that is easy to understand once you experience it. This weekend is Cincinnati's Oktoberfest Zinzinnati, the largest Oktoberfest held in the United States. Over a half million visitors will stroll the six block area around Fountain Square while munching on pretzels and sausages.
If huge celebrations aren't your style, we celebrate our German heritage regularly at historic Findlay Market. We're in the heart of Over-the-Rhine, the area where thousands of Germans immigrated in the mid-to-late 1800's. Many of our shop owners are of German descent and feature products like sausage, cheese, and sauerkraut. Our neighborhood features several local breweries, and our OTR Biergarten is operated on weekends by volunteers from the OTR Brewery District. So when you've had enough of your busy life, come share some Gemütlichkeit with us at Findlay Market. We've got fine food and cold beer, and we think you'll get that "feeling of comfort and acceptance." Alles is gut bei Findlay Market.
