Brats and metts

Dust off your dirndl because Oktoberfest Zinzinnati is back in 2021 and it's bigger than ever. There are now four full days of celebrations. 

Oktoberfest Zinzinnati runs 5 p.m.-midnight Sept. 16; 11 a.m.-midnight Sept. 17 and 18; and 11 a.m.-9 p.m. Sept. 19 on Second and Third streets downtown between Elm and Walnut streets.

And there's plenty of fun packed into those fest days, including beloved events like the The World's Largest Chicken Dance, the Running of the Wieners, the World Brat Eating Contest and more.

Professional eater Joey Chestnut has won the Zinzinnati brat-eating contest nine times, and hopes to break his record of eating 70 brats in 10 minutes at this year's event. 

If you aren't quite on that level but are interested in scarfing many sausages this weekend, you can stuff your face with German-inspired food from local vendors all weekend. Check out their full menus below:
