Oktoberfest Event Details
With great food and drink, music, shopping, and fun events like Drunken Cinema, Kitchener-Waterloo’s Oktoberfest is not to be missed! The festivities open 11:15am on the 5th with the ceremonial tapping of the keg! From then on, you have nine days to take advantage of everything the festival has to offer! Plenty of time to enjoy a pretzel alongside a stein (or two) of dunkel; even if you can’t commit a whole week to the merriment. You can find the full schedule for the event here, with tickets and more info available on the website.
