Taste of Cincinnati®, presented by Kroger, will return to Fifth Street in Downtown Cincinnati, July 3-5.
The nation’s longest running free culinary arts festival is traditionally held on Memorial Day weekend. The postponement is due to measures in place to stop the spread of COVID-19. Taste of Cincinnati is free and open to the public.
Additionally, Taste of Cincinnati is inviting our community to participate in Virtual Taste of Cincinnati, presented by Kroger, an in- and near-home culinary experience, April 3-5, exactly three months before the outdoor downtown event (July 3-5). Hours for this weekend’s event are 11:00 am – 8:00 pm, each day.
