3. Kitchener-Waterloo Oktoberfest
Many travelers to Ontario, Canada in mid-October make reservations to enjoy a taste of Bavaria at Kitchener-Waterloo’s Oktoberfest. Inspired by the famous event held in Germany, this annual celebration features traditional costume, Bavarian-style cuisine and beer and of course Polka bands in traditional attire. But the entertainment options are more diverse than that; recent itineraries have included rock music in a Rocktoberfest concert, a fashion show, the Miss Oktoberfest Gala Ball as well as a Pro-Am Golf Classic.
