The Taste of Cincinnati is a long-standing Memorial Day tradition in Cincinnati since 1979. The nation’s longest-running culinary festival will be held along Fifth Street in downtown Cincinnati on May 27-29, 2017.  This year the food festival has been moved eastward two blocks along Fifth Street to accommodate the Cincinnati Bell Streetcar.

Kicking off the event is the Vibrant Veggies Races held May 26, 2017 at noon at Fountain Square. Contestants will be given vegetables to build and race as a motorized vehicle.

Food Truck Alley
Local food trucks will be serving their culinary delights at the festival right from their vehicles along West Sixth Street.

In 1988, it was held for three days on Central Parkway. In 2007, the event moved to Fifth Street. From 2013-2016, 2.15 million people attended this event.
