Whether it’s to celebrate Octoberfest, Italian Heritage, goetta, or wine, Northern Kentucky and Cincinnati have demonstrated time and time again that the banks of the Ohio is a great place for a festival. I’ve been to several in the past, and have to say they know how to throw a party. Expect one this weekend at the Northern Kentucky Wine Festival.
MainStrasse is one of the best spots for a festival. The tree lined Sixth Street promenade between the Clock Tower and the Goose Girl Fountain is a perfect location for a stroll under the tent from booth to booth tasting Kentucky’s wines. The MainStrasse Village hosts great festivals.
MainStrasse Village is a historic neighborhood, with German heritage and architecture, just off the 5th Street exit from I-75/71. Parking is available in lots nearby, including complimentary parking at the IRS lot at 4th and Johnson. There are shops, restaurants, and taverns in the MainStrasse area.
The Northern Kentucky Wine Festival will be held from 3 to 10 PM, on Saturday, October 18, 2014. Four sample tickets and a souvenir wine glass are available for $10, but you can purchase more tickets or wine from the wineries. Fourteen wineries, including some of Kentucky’s best, such as Verona Vineyards, Lovers Leap Vineyard and Winery, and Smith-Berry Vineyard and Winery, will be there, as well as some artisans.
I’ll be there signing my book, hope to see you there.This entry was posted in Festivals by admin
