I go to Cincy's Oktoberfest every year. There's definitely a lot of people and some pretty good food and beers there too. My favorite Oktoberfest beer is Christian Moerlein's 5th and Vine which just happens to be local to Cincy.

This region was settled by a lot of Germans so Oktoberfest is a pretty big deal. I know of at least 3 separate O-fest celebrations within 5 miles of each other.

If you are in the Pittsburgh PA area, Penn Brewery has a pretty good Oktoberfest. The beer is great and the festivities are always a blast.

I hear Church Brew Works has a decent one too, but I haven't been to that one yet.

Riverhorse did one last year that was nice but not a raging party or anything. Live music, beer and brewery tour.
