Taste of Cincinnati's New Location
Taste of Cincinnati, presented by Budweiser, will shift its 2017 location two blocks east. Taste of Cincinnati, May 27-29, will remain on Fifth Street in downtown Cincinnati and run from Main Street to Sentinel and beyond to the ramps of I-71 and Columbia Parkway.
“With Mount Adams as its backdrop, Taste of Cincinnati promises to be a better and more beautiful festival,” said Jill P. Meyer, president and CEO of the Cincinnati USA Regional Chamber. “Taste of Cincinnati is a vibrant mix of cultures, coming together across bridges, regions and backgrounds to help create a community we’re all proud to call home.”
The new location will not further impact traffic. The 71 ramp has previously been closed during Taste of Cincinnati and the Columbia Parkway ramp will already be closed due to scheduled construction.
“Park where you normally would for Taste of Cincinnati or park anywhere from Findlay Market to the Banks and take the Cincinnati Bell Connector streetcar,” said Cynthia Oxley, director of Taste of Cincinnati. “The streetcar will drop you just west of Taste of Cincinnati on Walnut or Main.”
