Bockfest is a celebration of historic Over-the-Rhine, Cincinnatiís brewing heritage and the coming of spring. There are several bock beer festivals that take place around the world, but Cincinnatiís Bockfest is the oldest and largest in the United States. Bockfest occurs during the first weekend of March. It begins with a parade on Friday evening that starts at Arnoldís Bar & Grill, Cincinnatiís oldest saloon. The parade is lead by a goat pulling a keg of bock beer and the reigning Sausage Queen. It ends at Bockfest Hall where the ceremonial first keg is blessed, the best Parade entries are honored, and Bockfest officially begins. The Hall is open throughout the weekend and features live entertainment, great food, historic walking tours, authors and breweriana, a homebrew competition, Continental Sunday celebrations and lots of delicious bock beer. Bockfest is not just limited to the Hall. It occurs in a number of participating venues in Over-the-Rhine and the central business district. There is no admission fee for the hall and typically no admission fee for the participating venues. (If a venue charges a fee, it will be indicated on the event schedule.) A free shuttle bus runs a continuous loop around location, including Garfield Suites which is offering a special Bockfest Rate for festival goers.
