Three Fun Fall Festivals in Cincinnati

The weather is starting to cool in Cincinnati. With the arrival of fall, there will be plenty of opportunities for you to get out in the community and enjoy local food, vendors, music, and much more! In fact, here’s a look at three upcoming fall festivals in Cincinnati within 15 minutes of The Drexel at Oakley.

CAT Fest

Coming up on Saturday, October 13th is the annual fundraiser for the Center for Addiction Treatment of Cincinnati. This year’s CAT Fest event will feature a plethora of fun activities for the community to partake in, all while supporting a worthy cause for locals in need.

The event will take place on the Purple People Bridge at 5:30 pm and will end around 9:30 pm with the ‘Light the Way to Recovery’ at sunset. There’ll be live music from Empty Garden, ‘eats & treats’ served up from Carbonara’s Grill and Chloe’s Eatery, team games, activities, and themed raffle baskets and awards.

Fall Food Fest

Celebrate the local harvest with the Findlay Market organizers at the Fall Food Fest on October 21st. From 10 am to 4 pm on Race Street, you’ll find pumpkin painting, cooking demonstrations, live music, craft cocktails and beers, and specials from local vendors and merchants.

Actually, the Findlay Market is always hosting community events so be sure to visit their events page to stay in the know. Also, check out their merchant list to find out when your favorite local business will be at the market. You can catch a wide variety of booths including Adelinda’s Lumpia, Fresh Table, New Creation, and Nelter Farms.

Fall Fest Weekend

Finally, on October 27th and 28th, Washington Park in downtown Cincinnati will host the Fall Fest Weekend. Spend your pre-Halloween weekend enjoying live music, great food, awesome local vendors, and more. The event starts at 12 pm and ends at 6 pm on both days.
