114th Cincinnati Deutscher Tag

Cincinnati’s 114th Deutscher Tag (German Day) weekend celebrations started with the keg tapping at the Hofbräuhaus on Wednesday night and will continue on throughout the weekend.

On Saturday, June 6th, the parade and opening ceremonies will take place at the historic Findlay Market, featuring representatives of area German-American societies, as well as the German heritage of the Market. There will also be plenty of performances by German dance and music groups.

Then on Sunday, June 7, you can enjoy the fine food and beverage and German music at the Hofbräuhaus. The German-American Citizens League will offer hourly raffle prizes throughout the day, and a grand raffle at 5:30 P.M. Parking is free and there’s no charge for admission.

Festivities will run on both days from 11am to 11pm. German Day Weekend serves as a fundraiser for the German Heritage Museum. For more information contact Marge Poole at (513) 351-3185 or at
