The Cincinnati Chamber, organizers of Oktoberfest Zinzinnati, announced on Thursday morning that it plans to move forward with the annual festival this year. The Chamber is structuring the festival in several different ways for participants to celebrate (and celebrate safely).

The event will take place September 18 through September 27 with a majority of events being held virtually and some smaller events throughout the city.

Oktoberfest Zinzinnati, presented by Samuel Adams and Kroger, is traditionally the nation’s largest Oktoberfest and the second largest in the world to the original Oktoberfest in Munich. 

In an article posted by the Cincinnati Business Courier, Cynthia Oxley stated that the 2020 Munich event has been cancelled due to Covid-19. “As the Zinzinnati event will be held across the entire Zinzinnati region and Munich’s event is not happening in 2020, Oktoberfest Zinzinnati 2020 is taking it upon itself to assume the title of World’s Largest Oktoberfest,” said Cynthia.

Celebrating Virtually...and In-Person

The various ways to celebrate, both virtually and in-person, are outlined below;

Oktoberfest Zinzinnati In Za Haus will enable Oktoberfest lovers to get their German on in the privacy of their homes by ordering do-it-yourself Oktoberfest Zinzinnati Zelebration Packs.

Featuring items from Sam Adams, Kroger, and more. Zelebration Packs will be available to purchase through Das Onlein Shop, beginning Sep. 1.

Watch out for Oktoberfest Zinzinnati Bands performing Polka Pop Ups in a variety of local neighborhoods, tu-ba announced.

Greater Zinzinnatians will have the ability to celebrate while supporting favorite eateries and pubs.
