If you’re fully recovered from Bockfest, Downtown is offering a jam-packed weekend with live theatre, concerts and parties.
Celebrate St. Patrick’s Day with fellow Cincinnatians at Fountain Square on Saturday. St. Patrick’s Day Party festivities run throughout the day from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. and include live music from Celtic rock bands, tie-dye activities and, of course, lots of Guinness, Harp and green beer. Enjoy Skyline Chili Green Ways, Corned Beef Hash, Shepherd’s Pie and more Irish food. The 54th annual Cincinnati St. Patrick’s Day Parade will begin at noon and will travel along Mehring Way, so head to The Banks to get a good viewing spot. During the party, visit Cincinnati’s second-oldest bar, Irish-themed O’Malley’s in the Alley for a St. Patrick’s Day celebration, or head over to Scottish-style tavern, Nicholson’s Pub for live music, Irish fare and drink specials.
Also on Saturday, Grammy and Americana Music Award-nominated artist Yola is hitting the road in support of her anthemic new album, Stand for Myself. Yola will bring her sophisticated and diverse sonic mix of symphonic soul and classic pop to the Taft Theatre at 8 p.m. Soul-stirring vocalist Jac Ross will join as special guest, and tickets are still available.
