Sunday, March 8

Continental Sunday (at Bockfest Hall), 1P-7P: Organized by the German-American Citizens League, March 8th is Continental Sunday at Bockfest Hall. In the Over-the-Rhine of the 1800s, it was illegal to sell beer on Sundays, but that didn’t stop Cincinnati’s German-American community from filling the day with revelry and drink. This controversial approach to celebrating the Sabbath was known as “Continental Sunday” and we celebrate this history with a day of authentic German dancing, variety shows, and music, along with tours, authors, steins, and breweriana exhibits. Everyone wearing tracht (traditional German dress) get $1 off beer.
Continental Bockfeast (at Bockfest Hall), 12P-2P: The dinner includes ½ fresh rotisserie roasted Amish chicken from Revolution Rotisserie, sausage sampler from Queen City Sausage, potato-caramelized onion pierogies from Babushka Pierogies, German-American Potato salad and Hot Bacon Sauerkraut Slaw from Grandma Debbie’s, and a Servatii dessert. Tickets available at www.bockfest.com
