Oktoberfest Zinzinnati wraps up its final day of food, fun and German heritage in Cincinnati

Oktoberfest Zinzinnati wrapped up three days of food, fun and German heritage in Cincinnati. Feldman is not alone. By the end of the weekend, more than 500,000 people will have walked through 2nd and 3rd streets in downtown Cincinnati. From bands to food, beer and fun, Oktoberfest Zinzinnati has a winning toast to the end of summer. With a cold Sam Adams in hand, Ron Strong said the annual tradition brought his summer to a close. Strong said he’s been coming to the event since 1976. The eaters lined up for a brat-eating contest. The event organizers promised something for all ages and the event did not disappoint. After two years of pandemic limitations, large crowds returned this year, bringing their appetites and wallets. Eric Geisen of Izzy’s said the weekend was always critical for their summer sales. “We love coming here. Business has been great,” he said. “It was busy yesterday – very busy.” The Servatii bakery also had big sales, according to Mary VonBargen. “We have been very busy. Sell ​​the pretzels, sell the cream puffs (signature). It was awesome,” VonBargen said. The Convention and Visitor’s Bureau didn’t total all the revenue for the three days, but clearly injected the city of Cincinnati with a grateful “danke schoen.”
