The Little Known Seafood Festival Near Cincinnati That Will Transport You To The Coast

There’s a festival for just about everything in Cincinnati, and they’re one of our favorite things to celebrate food. From a local favorite goetta to Italian to German food, and more, we’ll chow down with thousands of our closest friends any day. While events like Taste of Cincinnati and Oktoberfest are well-known, there are some gatherings that aren’t – and that means we are missing out on some great food. Coming up in August, the Great Inland Seafood Festival is happening just across the river in Newport and it offers all of your fresh favorites for a great price. This little-known seafood festival near Cincinnati will transport you to the coast, and it’s just one more reason to celebrate food in the Queen City.

We may not be on the coast, but the Great Inland Seafood Festival will make you feel like you are. Gather on the banks of the Ohio River and chow down on all the fresh seafood this August at this little-known festival in the Tristate. Have you been to the Great Inland Seafood Festival?
