Details

Bockfest™ occurs during the first full weekend of March. It begins with a parade on Friday evening that starts at Arnold’s Bar & Grill, Cincinnati’s 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.

Saturday afternoon - went to Arnold’s and to A Taste of Belgium. Arnolds had a dozen Bocks on tap, I had four, the best of which was the Ei8ht Ball. Big crowd, warm day (finally), good time.
