After a few long years away, the Taste of Cincinnati festival has finally returned to downtown Cincinnati and to its rightful spot on Memorial Day weekend, offering a chance for hundreds of thousands of visitors to experience the vibrant culinary scene alive in the Queen City.
Founded in 1979, Taste of Cincinnati is claimed to be the nation’s longest-running culinary arts festival. It began as a one-day festival in Piatt Park, then known as Garfield Park. By 1981, it had expanded to two days, and to three days by 1988, moving to Central Parkway.
By 2007, Taste of Cincinnati moved to Fifth Street, where it will be held again this year.
In the past, more than 550,000 people have attended Taste of Cincinnati, and organizers say it’s one of the nation’s largest street festivals.
