WATERLOO REGION, Ont. – Daylight’s getting shorter, the nights are getting crisper and the trees are starting to show their true colours, which can mean only one thing — it’s that time of year when Waterloo Region goes a little Bavarian on us. Kitchener-Waterloo Oktoberfest, the largest festival of its kind in North America, is getting ready to welcome thousands of visitors from October 11 to 19, looking to make the most of fall by enjoying a taste of traditional German cuisine and entertainment.
“This festival has been getting better each year since it began 44 years ago,” says Minto Schneider, General Manager of Waterloo Regional Tourism Marketing Corporation. “The entertainment, the food and the family-oriented activities are absolutely first class.”
