Cover Story

Oktoberfest Zinzinnati! Expanded to three days


ktoberfest Zinzinnati is one of Cincinnati’s longest and most iconic traditions. Oktoberfest is a Bavarian tradition that goes back to 1810 and is held every year in late September and early October. Celebrating its 43rd year, Oktoberfest Zinzinnati will run from 11 A.M. Friday, September 20 to 9 P.M. Sunday, September 22. With over 650,000 expected attendees, Oktoberfest Zinzinnati is the largest Oktoberfest celebration in the United States, due in part to Cincinnati’s rich German heritage and culture, as well as dedication from its sponsors, Sam Adams and Amazon. Rich Walburg with Oktoberfest Zinzinnati is proud of what the celebration has become and says its due to “the producers at the Cincinnati USA Regional Chamber, the sponsors, vendors and volunteers who respect the festival’s tradition, while keeping the event fresh, relevant and innovative.” Located downtown on Second and Third streets between Walnut and Elm, the weekend is packed

with fun, exciting events, great beer, and unique food. Kicking off the weekend is the annual Running of the Wieners, which pits 100 dachshunds dressed in hot dog costumes against one another. Also, over the course of the weekend, the Sam Adams Stein Hoist and the World’s largest Chicken Dance. Special for this year, Oktoberfest Zinzinnati is partnering with the Cincinnati Reds to offer a package which includes a “commemorative Oktoberfest Zinzinnati mug, a ticket for a Reds game during Oktoberfest weekend, one free drink at the Reds game and another at Oktoberfest, all for as little as $20.” With new extended hours this year, the recent move to downtown, and the action-packed lineup of events throughout the weekend, be sure to come to Oktoberfest Zinzinnati, grab some sausages, schnitzel, and other great food, and check out the website, for more information.

The TRIFESTA of Music Festivals coming to Louisville in September!


n amazing lineup of music festivals is about to happen in Louisville over three weekends in September....and you’re totally going to want to attend! Three different music genres...ALL with Bourbon and more! HOMETOWN RISING Country Music & Bourbon Festival Saturday, September 14 & Sunday, September 15 At Highland Festival Grounds At KY Expo Center In Louisville, KY Country music icon Trace Adkins, independent rising country music artist Dillon Carmichael, and country rock duo The Sisterhood Band have been added to the incredible music lineup for Hometown Rising, the first-ever Country Music & Bourbon Festival, which debuts Saturday, September 14 and Sunday, September 15 at Highland Festival Grounds at KY Expo Center in Louisville, KY. Hometown Rising combines two of Louisville’s cultural cornerstones—great music and incredible bourbon (Exclusive Bourbon Tastings & Workshops), and is the newest addition to the Louisville fall festival series from premier independent festival producer Danny Wimmer Presents. Hometown Rising’s music lineup will be led by country heavyweights including Tim McGraw, Little Big Town, Luke Bryan and Keith Urban with additional appearances from Dwight Yoakam, Trace Adkins, Brett Young, Jake Owen, Bret Michaels, Frankie Ballard, and many more. In total, more than 30 artists will play on three stages, including two side-by-side main stages, over the course of the weekend. Bourbon & Beyond Friday, September 20 - Sunday, September 22 At Highland Festival Grounds At KY Expo Center In Louisville, KY The World’s Largest Bourbon Festival, Bourbon & Beyond, will make its anticipated return to Louisville, KY expanded to three days full of incredible music, unique culinary events, and unmatched


experiences from the region’s best distilleries at the new Highland Festival Grounds At KY Expo Center. In addition to an unforgettable lineup of bourbon and chefs, music performers include a unique mix of rock, roots, bluegrass and folk acts headlined by Foo Fighters, Robert Plant And The Sensational Space Shifters (returning after originally being scheduled to appear in 2018), the Zac Brown Band, John Fogerty, Daryl Hall & John Oates, and ZZ Top (celebrating their 50th anniversary in 2019). Additional acts include Nathaniel Rateliff & The Night Sweats, Trey Anastasio Band, Leon Bridges, The Flaming Lips, Alison Krauss, Edward Sharpe And The Magnetic Zeroes, +LIVE+, Grace Potter, Little Steven & The Disciples Of Soul, and Joan Jett & The Blackhearts, among many others. In total, more than 45 artists will play on three stages, including the side-by-side Oak and Barrel main stages and a bluegrass stage that will be curated by the genre’s leading authority, The Bluegrass Situation.

Held during Bourbon Heritage Month, Bourbon & Beyond also celebrates the craftsmanship behind award-winning spirits, master distillers and world-class chefs. Bourbon author, Amazon Prime host (Bourbon Up) and expert Fred Minnick has curated one-of-a-kind tastings and seminars celebrating Louisville’s world-renowned distilleries, while culinary curators Edward Lee (The Mind of A Chef) and Anthony Lamas (Seviche) will team up to arrange special food experiences that will be announced soon. “If you could capture America in a bottle, it would be a bottle of bourbon. It’s a uniquely American creation, like jazz and baseball, and its beating heart is in Louisville,” says Bourbon & Beyond producer Danny Wimmer. “This connection to the past has transformed Louisville into a city of the future. One of the most vibrant and diverse food scenes in the country has grown around bourbon’s resurgence, and we tried to mirror that spirit with the great music lineup that we put together. I can’t wait for people to visit this city in September and experience something that goes far beyond their preconception of what Louisville is.”

LOUDER THAN LIFE September 27, 28 & 29 At Festival’s New Home Highland Festival Grounds At KY Expo Center Touted as The World’s Largest Rock ‘N’ Roll Whiskey Festival......quintessential rock band Guns N’ Roses, notorious for their larger-than-life, bombastic shows that engulf every fan, are the first act for the return of Louder Than Life. This year the festival will be headed to its new home at the Highland Festival Grounds At KY Expo Center on Friday, September 27, Saturday, September 28 and Sunday, September 29. This will mark the debut of the Guns N’ Roses lineup at the Louder Than Life festival and is the first appearance for the rock giants since performing in Hawaii in December 2018. “There are only a handful of bands through the years whose music not only resonates with fans, but changes the entire face of rock ‘n’ roll. Guns N’ Roses is one of those true icons,” says festival producer Danny Wimmer. Continued on Page 19

Del Gardo’s Cannoli.... Taste a New Tradition in Covington!


el Gardo’s Cannoli has been in the making for over 30 years for owner Steve Del Gardo. It started while Steve was a Chef’s Apprentice at 18 years old in Columbus, Ohio.

Steve had a dream....and in 2018 it became a reality. He wanted to open an Italian café but be different than anyone else. He explored a coffee bar concept to a full eat in café but his main focus was his special recipes for cannoli. Steve has an art/design background and wanted to use those skills in creating wonderful looking artisan cannoli as well as being very tasty to one’s palette. After 12 months exploring and research on how to get his cannoli to the masses, Steve is living his dream. Del Gardo’s Cannoli Bar offers Italian Fine Wines and Premium Craft Beers.
