Oktoberfest Zinzinnati

New Location for 2024 Announced!

We’re thrilled to announce that the 2024 Oktoberfest will be held at Sawyer Point Park. The park location will help create a more European-style festival feel with plenty of space to spread out, relax and enjoy the scenery. It will also include a 300-foot long beer tent that can accommodate up to 1,000 people and new experiences that will extend along the river front area. True to Oktoberfest Zinzinnati custom, this year’s event will feature the annual running of the weiners, stein-hoisting competition and the traditional fest kick off tapping of the keg. Mark your calendars now!


America’s Oktoberfest returns to downtown Cincinnati from September 19-22, 2024. First held in 1976, the nation’s largest Oktoberfest grew even bigger as a record 808,300 attendees celebrated the rich German heritage of Southwest Ohio last year. The event will continue its expanded days and hours and open up on Thursday, September 19, 2024. A location for the event is to be determined.
