With 2022 marking the 30th year, the full celebration is back with three days of merriment. Festivities include live entertainment, historic walking tours, a 5k race, delicious food, a homebrew competition and, of course, plenty of bock beer. 
 
New for 2022, Bockfest Hall will be located at Findlay Playground, 1811 Vine Street.
