The Bockfest Brewers' Summit (at Bockfest Hall). Noon to 5PM
The Bockfest Brewers' Summit is an event for people who are serious about brewing beer, as well as those who are just semi-serious about drinking it. The Blotarian Brewing League's 6th Annual Bock Homebrew Competition is a professionally judged competition. The winner's recipe is used to produce the limited-edition Schoenling Bock the following year. This year, in addition to the competition, people who are far more comfortable drinking beer than brewing it get to judge their own favorite bock. Brewmasters from multiple craft breweries in the Cincinnati region will be present at the Bockfest Festival Tent to discuss and answer questions about their beers while attendees taste different offerings. The Sausage Queen Competition Finals (at Bockfest Hall,) 7:30-9PM
The Bockfestâ„¢ Parade includes the "Sausage Queen" Bockfest royalty who carries a ceremonial tray of bockwurst sausages, accompanied by a court of contestants chosen from six preliminary rounds. On Saturday at 7:30PM, at Bockfest Hall, Sausage Queen 2015 will be selected in a gender-neutral competition.

1P-7P: Continental Sunday (at Bockfest Hall)
Organized by the German-American Citizens League, March 9rd 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.
12P-2P: Continental Bockfeast (at Bockfest Hall)
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. Get your tickets HERE.
12P-2P: SuperFowl (at Bockfest Hall Tent), Final rounds of the Moerlein Malthouse fowling league (bowling + football).
