Schwabenfest

The Cincinnati Donauschwaben Society hosts its sixth-annual Schwabenfest. The name may be a mouthful, but so is its main event: Cincinnati’s only 750-pound ox roast. New to the fest this year is a special keg-tapping ceremony featuring Christian Moerlein beer. Schawbenfest promises to be similar to the society’s authentic Oktoberfest, with homemade sausage dinners, pretzel sandwiches, strudel, cream puffs, Donauschwaben dancers, a stein-holding contest and live music.


6 p.m.-midnight Friday; 1 p.m.-midnight Saturday. $3. Donauschwaben Society, 4290 Dry Ridge Road, Colerain, cincydonau.com.
