BOCKFEST RETURNS FOR 28TH YEAR February 28 – March 1, 2020

BOCKFEST RETURNS FOR 28TH YEAR

Join us on February 28 – March 1, 2020 as we celebrate 28 years of the funkiest festival in Cincinnati!
Friday February 28, 2020 – Steps off at 6PM

Starting at Arnold’s – Cincinnati’s oldest saloon – the Bockfest parade presented by Kroger and the On the Rhine Eatery is traditionally lead by a goat pulling a keg and the reigning Sausage Queen along with the official parade marshal. It travels up Sycamore Street to 12th Street to Main Street to Bockfest Hall and ends with the blessing of the bock beer. This officially marks the beginning of a weekend of festive celebration that might end in blaming a goat on your horizontal position. Goats, the German Renaissance, beer, irreverence and originality are all highly esteemed aspects of a parade entry. There are no fire trucks for the kids. In the past, entries have included faux-monks pulling a Trojan goat, futon queens, German beer bands, a four-poster bed pulled by slave labor, goats on Segways, a leather-clad whip wench with a huge whip, and patriotic chants of “drink more beer.” As usual, you can bring your favorite canine to walk with “The Bocking Dogs.”

The Bockfest Parade presented by Kroger and On the Rhine Eatery will be held on Friday February 28, 2020. The parade will start to form in front of Arnold’s Bar and Grill, located at 210 East 8th Street, at 5:00PM and steps off on at 6:00PM. The Bockfest Parade is Cincinnati’s funkiest and most entertaining parade. It can be watched from the street or from a number of participating venues along the route.

 

Celebrate the Coming of Spring, Over-the-Rhine’s brewing heritage, and bock beer at the largest Bockfest in the United States. Join us on February 28 – March 1, 2020 as we celebrate 28 years of the funkiest festival in Cincinnati!

There is something for everyone at the at one of the participating venues or at Bockfest Hall (located at the Christian Moerlein Brewery at 1621 Moore Street, Cincinnati 45202)!

Party Like a Bockstar on Friday night by watching the Parade presented by Kroger and On the Rhine Eatery and beer blessing, then enjoying great food, cold bock beer, and live music including headliner the Naked Karate Girls.

Saturday morning starts off with the Bockfest 5K, then you can tap into the Bock Beer Blowout featuring local bock beer tastings with over 18 bocks on draft, homebrew competitions, historic brewery walking tours, Bockfeast Pig Roast, and fun beer games pitting local breweries vying for the coveted Brewers Cup.

Saturday night kicks back into high gear with the Billygoat Ball with more cold bock beer, the Beard Baron and Sausage Queen competitions, and headliner The Rusty Griswolds!

Bring the kids to Bockfest Hall on Sunday for Bock, Brunch, and Bavarians. The family fun starts with the Little Links childrens’ pageant and features kid-friendly games and petting zoo – plus Goat Yoga, the Bockfeast Pig Roast Dinner and Bock Bloody Mary Bar. The .05K Fun “Run” raises funds for the Brewing Heritage Trail and Continental Sunday showcases our rich heritage with live German music and dancing, steins and breweriana, historic brewery walking tours, and a series of local history talks.

Make sure to visit all the participating venues throughout the neighborhood with special offers all weekend long. The best part is Bockfest is FREE!

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.
