The Cincinnati Schützenfest is America's Longest Running German Fest! Its roots date back to 1866 and is actually older than the Cincinnati Reds! Schützenfest, translated as the Marksmen’s Fest, is a traditional German festival dating back to medieval times. It celebrates a marksman saving a young child’s life from an eagle attack. Schützenfest was brought to Cincinnati in 1866 by German immigrants.  The tradition continues each year with the shooting of a hand-carved eagle. The winning marksman is crowned 'Schützenkönig', or Shooting King, for the year.
You do not want to miss the Schützenfest Gemütlichkeit of beer, wine, food, and entertainment for the whole family! Please see their Website and Facebook Page for more information on outstanding food and refreshments as well as a fantastic entertainment lineup!
New this year is the Schützenfest 1K Bier Dash Fun Run on Friday night. The event takes place at 7:30pm right after the opening ceremonies. Sign up online to participate.
