Bockfest season festivities are well underway as we get ready for Bockfest Weekend, March 6th - 8th. The season began with the annual Beefsteak Club fundraiser at the old Windisch-Muhlhauser Brewery in Over The Rhine. Soon after, the preliminary rounds of the 2015 Sausage Queen pageant got underway. Here's what else you can expect between now and the main event.
The OTR 5k Run/Walk and Summer Celebration began in 2007 with a group of friends, residents of Over-the-Rhine and members of the Over-the-Rhine Chamber of Commerce, as a way to invite Cincinnatians to see the Renaissance that was beginning in the neighborhood. The 5k Run/Walk started and finished on Vine Street followed by a day-long celebration on the corner of 12th & Vine. Only a handful of new businesses were on Vine Street at the time.
The snow is melting and the Season of Bockfest is upon us! Sausages have been stuffed, our local Beer Barons have tapped their latest Bock Beer creations, and dozens of enthusiastic young women (and men) have been nervously preparing for the day they may be crowned Little Kings Sausage Queen.
2013 marks the eighth year of Second Sunday on Main (SSOM), the eclectic neighborhood street festival of historic Over-the-Rhine. The fifth and final event of the season is Sunday, October 13 from noon to 5 p.m.
Join us for another Second Sunday on Main on August 11. This month’s theme is “Fun in the Sun,” and we have so many activities and events lined up, we can’t think of a more fun place to be this Sunday than right here on Main Street.
