Cincinnati Music Festival

Thursday, July 20 2023 | 7:30 PM Saturday, July 22 2023 | 11:30 PM

Originally called the Ohio Valley Jazz Festival when it was first held in 1962, the Cincinnati Music Festival has grown and evolved into a spectacular three-day event on Cincinnati’s riverfront. Starting out as an all-jazz concert, over the years it has grown into a three-day festival featuring great music from the hottest stars in R&B, jazz, soul, and hip-hop, as well as up and coming artists. Cincinnati Music Festival is accompanied by a street festival dubbed Festival 513.

Stop by Festival 513 and The Banks to enjoy drinks, dinner, and entertainment prior to the shows.
