St. Teresa of Avila (August 1–3)


As parking lot festivals go, St. Teresa of Avila’s is pretty classy thanks to its 92-year-old church building. This west side beaut—a mashup of Spanish Revival and Italian Romanesque Revival complete with ornate archways and columns, terra cotta roof tiles, and a bell tower—looms over a tent city of food vendors (Hello, Holy Grail West!), kiddie games (Wii Dance!), and crafty activities (sand art!). Get your kid’s face painted, take your chances at the Elder High School hockey team’s slap shot booth, hoist a cherry slushie, and gobble down some LaRosa’s pizza for a good, old-fashioned Cincinnati summer night. 1175 Overlook Ave., West Price Hill,
