Oktoberfest Schedule of Events
Friday, Sept. 21 from Noon to Midnight
Oktoberfest Sneak Peek
 
The Oktoberfest Sneak Peak returns to give visitors the chance to
enjoy all the fun of the festival for three days. The Sneak Peek will
be offered only on Fountain Square on Friday, Sept. 21, starting at
noon and running until midnight. This Oktoberfest tailgate will
include German food, beer, music from the Klaberheads and these fan
favorites:
 
Friday, Sept. 21 at 12:00 p.m.
John Morrell Running of the Wieners
On Fountain Square, Oktoberfest-Zinzinnati will get off to a running
start with the wildly-popular John Morrell Running of the Wieners. Now
in its sixth year, the Running of the Wieners features heats of
daschunds, the official mascot of Oktoberfest-Zinzinnati, competing in
a “paw” race across Fountain Square. Each dog will receive its
regulation “race gear” hot dog bun costume.


Friday, Sept. 21 at 1:15 p.m.
Gemuetlichkeit Games
After the Running of the Wieners, an Oktoberfest staple, beer, takes
center stage during the Gemuetlichkeit Games. From the German word for
“goodwill,” the Gemuetlichkeit Games will feature two events:
 
Beer Stein Races, in which contestants race across Fountain Square
with fists full of filled beer steins to see not only who is the
fastest, but who can spill the least.
Barrel Rolling Contest, in which contestants race to roll a
traditional wooden beer barrel across Fountain Square.


Saturday, Sept. 22 at 11:30 a.m.
Oktoberfest Opening Ceremonies
The most traditionally German component of Oktoberfest and the
official opening of Oktoberfest-Zinzinnati. The ceremonies begin with
a colorful parade of German-American representatives wearing
traditional vestments, walking to each fest tent to mark the opening
by tapping the keg.

Saturday, Sept. 22 at 1:30 p.m.
World’s Largest Chicken Dance
Mister Perfect, Tom Browning, will lead thousands of partyin’ poultry
in the World’s Largest Chicken Dance at Oktoberfest. The carousing
will take place at 1:30 p.m. on Saturday, Sept. 22 at historic
Fountain Square in Downtown Zinzinnati. Browning is the third Red to
lead the Chicken Dance, joining Joe Morgan and Joe Nuxhall.

Saturday, Sept. 22 at 3:00 p.m.
World Bratwurst Eating Championship
Joey “Jaws” Chestnut, the top-ranked competitive eater in the world,
will return to Oktoberfest-Zinzinnati on Saturday, Sept. 22 at 3 p.m.
to defend his crown and seek a historic “three-peat” at the third
annual World Bratwurst Eating Championship. The contest of intestinal
fortitude will take place in the Hudepohl Bar & Bier Garten at Fifth
and Broadway.

Saturday, Sept. 22 at 4:00 p.m.
Reds Game
Don’t have tickets to the game? Then come to Fountain Square, the
Yuengling Fest Tent or the Beck’s Fest Tent to join fellow fans and
cheer on the Redlegs in this nationally-televised game against the
Dodgers.

Saturday, Sept. 22 at 5:00 p.m.
Samuel Adams Beer Hoisting Championships
This contest of grit, determination, strength, and desire to not waste
one’s beer, will take place on Fountain Square after a series of
preliminary events at local bars and pubs. The winner will be crowned
the Samuel Adams Beer Hoisting
Champion.

Saturday, Sept. 22 at 8:00 p.m.
Stein Hoist Heard Round the World
In conjunction with the Oktoberfest celebrations in Boston and Denver,
Oktoberfest-Zinzinnati toasters will join Jim Koch, founder of Sam
Adams, for the "Stein Hoist Heard Round the World" at Fountain Square
for what could be the largest toast in recorded history. Prost!

Sunday, Sept. 23 at 1:00 p.m.
Bengals Game
Who Dey! Head to Fountain Square, the Yuengling Fest Tent or the
Beck’s Fest Tent to join others donned in Bengals jerseys and
black-and-orange chicken hats as the Bengals take on the Washington
Redskins.

Sunday, Sept. 23 at 8:00 p.m.
Reds Game
No tickets to the game? No sweat-- come to Fountain Square, the
Yuengling Fest Tent or the Beck’s Fest Tent to join fellow fans and
cheer on the Redlegs in this nationally-televised game against the
Dodgers.

Hourly on Saturday and Sunday
Rock the Glock
And at the turning of every hour, guests can enjoy the new
Glockenspiel in the Hudepohl Bar & Bier Garten. In many German
villages, there is a glockenspiel-- a clock tower with animated
figures that mark the passing of each hour. The glockenspiel is the
center of activity in the village and is a source of pride for the
locals. For the first time, Oktoberfest-Zinzinnati will have a
glockenspiel as well. Except the Glockenspiel at Oktoberfest will have
animation of an entirely different kind. No mechanical people here--
actual people will mark each hour at this “living” glockenspiel. The
Glockenspiel will consist of a working clock, bell and stage with a
bar on the ground level. The clock and bell were created by the Verdin
Bell Company. When the clock strikes, the music will kick in and
entertainers-- local German groups, dance groups and celebrities--
will emerge and ring in the hour with dances, toasts and souvenirs for
the crowd. And surprise guest entertainers will appear to “Rock the
Glock” too.
