Few places are as proud of their German heritage as Cincinnati (other than perhaps Germany), and in order to let that dignity gleam as bright as it should, a three-day festival devoted to sausage is in order.
The Queen City Sausage Festival is bound to be a tasty celebration of Cincinnati’s finest, meatiest cuisine.
None other than the region’s best-selling independent sausage maker itself, Queen City Sausage, will offer up more than 27 delicious ways their meaty treats can be enjoyed in most any recipe. With the loyal support from other local eateries and breweries, Queen City Sausage is racking up one hell of a smokin’ good time.
There will also be live musical entertainment, rides and games for the kids, and a sausage eating contest for those who enjoy watching people suffer.
Free. Friday, July 14 through Sunday, July 15. 5-11 p.m. Friday, noon-11 p.m. Saturday and noon-9 p.m. Sunday. Newport’s Riverfront Levee. queencitysausage.com .
