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, 5K, Continental Sunday celebrations and lots of delicious bock beer. Bockfest is not just limited to the Hall. It occurs in a over a dozen participating venues in Over-the-Rhine and downtown, and all events are free to the public (except for the tours and the 5K). A free shuttle bus runs a continuous loop around locations, including Garfield Suites which is offering a special Bockfest Rate for festival goers.
