German dancers. Lederhosen and dirndls. And a LOT of German bier.

Nearly every weekend through early October, Oktoberfest events will be celebrated across Greater Cincinnati and Northern Kentucky. Most of them follow this fun formula: an overflow of wieners, brats, sauerkraut, strudel and more German food, plus live music, games, rides and raffles.

Need help tracking them all? Here’s our roundup of Oktoberfests to mark on your calendar.

Because, really, you can never eat too much schnitzel.
