Willkommen to the 47th Annual
Germania Society Oktoberfest!   http://germaniasociety.com/

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.
