KÜCHENER – This year's barrel launch at Oktoberfest took place at a new location. When the official opening ceremony of the 51st Oktoberfest in Kitchener-Waterloo takes place around noon on Friday, October 11, thousands of revelers are expected in the ample parking lot near the intersection of King Street and Frederick Street.
For the first time in 27 years, organizers are hoping for the same success as celebrating for the first time in 27 years on an empty civic square in front of Kitchener Town Hall. You can also get information about Oktoberfest keg tapping through the web.

After the Mayor of Munich traditionally presented the first beer, the 186th Oktoberfest, one of the world's largest folklore festivals, officially opened on Saturday.
From September 21 to October 6, more than 6 million Oktoberfest fans and visitors from around the world are expected to enjoy the festival's beer and delicious food at the festival venue.
Here everyone feels a strong niche for old festival customs, Bavarian customs, local hospitality, and a successful combination of traditional and contemporary folk music.
This year, Oktoberfest visitors will be treated to beer with a neutral climate. "We wanted to have an environmental festival," said Wiesn boss Baumgartner. The brewery's environmental activities have little effect on beer prices and cost more than 11 euros per liter in 2019.
