Oktoberfest is going to look a bit different in Zinzinnati this year.
Instead of a large in-person party, the organizers are shooting to have smaller gatherings in participating restaurants and bars around the city, as well as some "In Za Haus" experiences via streaming from Sept. 18-27. For example, the world’s largest Chicken Dance will be held on Zoom on Saturday Sept. 19 and the world’s largest Oktoberfest toast and prost — led by Jim Koch, founder of Samuel Adams — will also be streamed on Zoom on Saturday, Sept. 26.
Downtown's Arnold’s Bar & Grill is one of the restaurants teaming up with Sam Adams to bring a week of German fun to Cincinnati. They are promising live music, a full German menu prepared by Guy’s Grocery Games-winning chef Kayla Robison and 10 different kinds of German beer to celebrate.
The bar and restaurant will be handing out free German Alpine hats, lederhosen suspenders and steins, which you can wearing during the following events:
- 7-9 p.m. Sept. 18 and 19: German music from John Banner
- Sept. 22: Chef Robison will teach a streaming German menu cooking class on Arnold's Facebook page, including how to make German schnitzel
- 7-9 p.m. Sept. 25 and 26: Live German music from the Prost Duo
In addition, there will be $5 pints of Sam Adams' Oktoberfest beer, plus Braxton Oktober Fuel, Listermann Fest Beer, Moerlein 5th and Vine Oktober Fest-Märzen, 50 West Oktoberfest, Rhinegeist Franz, Ayinger Oktober Fest-Märzen, Bells October Fest, Great Lakes Octoberfest and Spaten Oktoberfest on tap.
Even though Arnold’s is all about bringing the fun for this special event, they are asking guests to wear a mask until they are seated. Seating is limited and there will be no bar seating or standing room available.
Arnold's is located at 210 E. Eighth St., Downtown. More info: facebook.com/arnoldsbar.
