Schützenfest, translated as the Marksman's Festival, is a traditional German fest dating back to medieval times. It celebrates a marksman saving a young child's life from a vicious eagle attack. Schützenfest was brought to Cincinnati in 1866 by German immigrants.
We continue this tradition each year with the shooting of a hand-carved eagle, perched high on a pole. The marksman that shoots the last piece of the eagle is crowned “Schützen König”, or Shooting King, for the year.
Come celebrate with us and enjoy the Gemütlichkeit!
