Today we travel to the Waterloo Region to experience Canada's largest year-round farmers' market. A local guide will share the "Industry to Innovation" path that this region is well known for. Later, we kick off Oktoberfest with dinner at a traditional Festhallen. Celebrating the spirit of Gemutlichkeit since 1969, the Kitchener-Waterloo Oktoberfest was established as a civic festival honoring Bavarian traditions and local German Canadian heritage. The festival has become the largest Bavarian festival in North America. The next 3 nights will be spent in Waterloo.
