Don’t let the name confuse you: this year’s Oktoberfest party is actually kicking off in late August.

The Germania Society boasts that their 49th-annual Oktoberfest is the most authentic in Cincinnati (or Zinzinnati if you’re really getting in the Deutsch mood).They have live German music and dancing, games for kids, plenty of food and, of course, a wide variety of bier, wein and schnapps.
