After 15 years of silence, The Verdin Company proudly renovated the 18 bronze bell chime known as the Kitchener-Waterloo Oktoberfest Timeteller in the City of Waterloo and the City of Kitchener in Ontario. Now, thousands of songs will ring out from the chime that also has a newly built bandshell decorated with motifs and scenes from Waterloo County’s heritage. Give a listen!
The Timeteller has been a landmark that welcomes visitors into the city of Waterloo and the City of Kitchener, Ontario, since 1984. In honor of the 50th Anniversary of The Kitchener-Waterloo Oktoberfest, the entire structure has been restored. Inside are computerized audio-animatronics in the form of a miniature band and dancers. Action, music and the light show are synchronized by the computer and can be adapted to the occasion or season.
The German-Canadian icon is programmed for seasonal music and lighting ensuring audience interest and making it a destination for the entire family.
