The Cincinnati/Northern Kentucky Airport (CVG), partnering with the Cincinnati USA Regional Chamber, will kick off the 40th annual Oktoberfest Zinzinnati in German style from noon to 2 p.m. Friday, Sept. 16 at the airport’s Welcome Point, lower level of Terminal.
As part of the celebration, the Pete Wagner Band will play traditional polka music, and Bavarian pretzels will be served to travelers at CVG.
“As the front door to the community we’re excited to partner with the Cincinnati USA Regional Chamber to welcome visitors to our region and kick off Oktoberfest 2016,” said Candace McGraw, chief executive officer, CVG.
Oktoberfest Zinzinnati showcases the rich German heritage of Cincinnati, as well as tasty samples of German-style music, food and beer. First held in 1976, the event has grown to be North America’s largest Oktoberfest with more than a half million people attending each year.
“As America’s Oktoberfest — a world-class event, we want to roll out a huge German welcome to greet our visitors,” said Rich Walburg, communications director, Cincinnati USA Regional Chamber. “This is a fun way we’re highlighting Cincinnati’s history to travelers from all over the world.”
