Please join us for a day of celebration at the Over-the-Rhine Community Festival on Saturday, August 5th, from 12 PM – 6 PM at Washington Park. This will be the Contact Center’s 32nd year to organize the Festival.
The Festival celebrates our neighborhood’s diversity in residents, community organizations, businesses, and faith based groups. It is a day to come together to have a fun-filled day in a beautiful park building relationships and friendships while enjoying games & prizes, free entertainment, and food. Community groups share information about their organizations to build awareness of the good services provided in our community. A highlight of this annual Festival is the Children and Youth Talent Contest, which will take place at 3:00 p.m. on the Washington Park Stage.
