Bend in the River Art & Music Festival

  • The Sanctuary 2110 Saint Michael Street Cincinnati, OH, 45204 United States (map)

Join us for the 4th annual Bend in the River Art & Music Festival. This family-friendly event is free to the public and showcases the ongoing vibrant transformation of the Lower Price Hill neighborhood. Bend Fest will be held in and around The Sanctuary, a beautifully-renovated, historic former church built in 1847.

Bend Fest will feature local music ranging from bluegrass to alternative rock with headliner performances in the evening by The Tillers and Ben Knight & the Welldiggers. Opening performances will include community favorites MYCincinnati, MUSE│Cincinnati’s Women’s Choir, and WordPlay spoken word poetry, as well as the up and coming young talent of the band Saving Escape.

A diverse group of local artists and other vendors will make our Art Alley come alive and St. Michael Street will become a kid’s area complete with fall, family-friendly games. Food & beverages at Bend in the River will also be available from local businesses, including craft beers from Rivertown Brewing & Barrel House, Buddy Fristoe’s Catering, and a community grill out.

Community Matters would like to thank our sponsors Busam Automotive, Hart Pharmacy, Nehemiah Manufacturing Co., Ohio Arts Council, Model Group, Rivertown Brewing & Barrel House, Santa Maria Community Services, and Oyler School.
