Fodor's Review

The six-block area around Fountain Square is turned into a German biergarten for this three-day celebration of the city's German heritage, the largest Oktoberfest outside Munich. Don your lederhosen and compete in the beer barrel roll or dance the chicken dance, often led by a once-popular musical artist from the "where are they now?" file. You can quench your thirst with a stein of beer, and there's plenty of goetta (a German dish made from meat and grain, similar to breakfast sausage), bratwurst, sauerkraut, and strudel to go around.
