There are several bock beer festivals that take place around the world, but Cincinnati's Bockfest is the oldest and largest in the United States. Bockfest occurs during the first weekend of March. It begins with a parade on Friday evening that starts at Arnold's Bar & Grill, Cincinnati's oldest saloon. The parade is lead by a goat pulling a keg of bock beer and the reigning Sausage Queen. It ends at Bockfest Hall where the ceremonial first keg is blessed and Bockfest officially begins.
