BOCKFEST IS BACK! RETURNS FOR 30TH YEAR
Mar 4-6 2022| Cincinnati, OH | Food

 

About Bockfest
Bockfest is first and foremost, a community event. In addition to throwing a great, three day long party, our goal is to celebrate and support our local community. We work to grow Bockfest every year, to increase attendance, to grow the parade, to add events, and to raise more money to spread the word. However, as enthusiastic as we are about growing the festival and sharing it with an increasingly wider range of America, we are unwavering in our commitment to keep Bockfest unique, authentic and local. There is no charge to the public to attend Bockfest and we work to include all types of local businesses because our goal is to promote Over-the-Rhine, its rich heritage, and the people who live and work here to as broad of an audience as we can reach.

Bockfest, presented by TruPartner Credit Union, takes place at multiple participating bars & restaurants throughout Over-the-Rhine and Downtown. All locations are FREE!

 

THE PERFECT BOCKFEST WEEKEND
Start your Bockfest weekend at the Moerlein Lager House with the winners of this year’s Schoenling Bock Home Brew Competition at 4P. Hop on the streetcar to Arnold’s and Main Street to watch the Parade step off at 6P. Follow the Parade up to our NEW Bockfest Hall at Findlay Playground to hear Jake Speed sing “The Bock Beer Song”, bow your head with Brother Tim as he blesses this year’s bock beer, and cheer as the Parade winners are announced. Grab a bock beer and some food and Rock out with The Klaberheads before heading out to our participating venues in Over-the-Rhine/Downtown and around Cincinnati with their own specials.

Shake off those cobwebs on Saturday morning and cheer on the Bockfest 5K runners at 10A. The Bock Beer Experience kicks off at 12P where you can sample over 30 bock beers! You’ll need a full belly to make sure the goat doesn’t kick too hard, and the BockFest Pig Roast will fill you up. Hop next door to Rookwood Pottery for our Bockfest Heritage Series with breweriana and speakers or take a 1 hour walking tour of one of Cincinnati’s most historic breweries and its underground lager cellars. Take a break Saturday night with great music, then watch our newest Sausage Queen be crowned. Make sure to stop by our participating venues, both in Over-the-Rhine/Downtown and around Cincinnati.

You’re not done yet, as we start Sunday a little slower and a lot more family friendly! Goat Yoga starts the day at 10A, followed by the cutest Little Links pageant for the kids. Games for kids with our partners at the Cincinnati Recreation Commission start at 11A, along with a petting zoo with you guessed it, goats! Live music in the afternoon along with more chances for a walking tour of Cincinnati brewing history, plus the BockFeat pig roast continues. You can end the weekend on a high note by running, walking, or crawling 164′ feet in the .05K Run at 3P and win your own t-shirt, beer opener medal, and more!
