Oktoberfest Zinzinnati competes with Oktoberfest USA (La Crosse) for the title of America's Most Authentic Oktoberfest. Both festivals claim the title is theirs, both of them claim they're folky and Germanic, and the best. Zinzinnati also claims to have the largest attendance at more than half a million visitors. From the reviews it would seem that the other thing Oktoberfest Zinzinnati does well is the food side of the event, bragging that at one recent event festival-goers consumed 80,500 bratwurst, 64,000, 3,600 lbs. of sauerkraut, 56,250 sausages, 24,640 potato pancakes, 702 lbs. of Limburger cheese and 700 pigtails. Another thing that sets this Oktoberfest apart from others is their incorporation of the Chicken Dance into proceedings alongside the Gemuetlichkeit Games, and the rolling out of barrels and imbibing of the contents.  Out of steins.
