Taste Of Newport
Typically held as a street festival on a Sunday in June, Taste of Newport features bites from throughout the city.
Held as a long weekend celebration (Thursday through Sunday) in June, Italianfest takes over Festival Park, Riverboat Row, and the Newport Riverfront with live music and plenty of delicious food.
Held in August each year, Glier’s Goettafest continues to grow each year. With 2021 taking over two weekends and two cities (Newport and Covington), the festival is a clear area favorite! Don’t miss the live music, family-friendly fun, and all goetta prepared every way imaginable!
Great Inland Seafood Festival
In August each year, the Newport banks of the Ohio River turn into a seafood mecca of whole lobsters, crab, shrimp, and more!
This Labor-Day weekend celebration of the entire Ohio Riverfront features an incredible fireworks show to put an exclamation point on the unofficial end of summer.
Oktoberfest is a local favorite family-friendly event. Wear your favorite German outfit and come hungry and thirsty!
