The West End World Premiere

The West End, scheduled to debut last year at the Cincinnati Playhouse before it canceled its 2020–2021 season due to the pandemic, finally gets its world premiere this weekend. This new play opens the Playhouse’s season and reveals the intersection of life between the West End’s German and Black residents at the precipice of World War II. Learn more about The West End in our interview with playwright and Cincinnati native Keith Josef Adkins.

 Oct 9–Nov 7, Cincinnati Playhouse, Marx Theatre, 962 Mt. Adams Cir., Mt. Adams 

Suits That Rock 2021: Get Back!

For nearly 15 years, local business professionals have put on this annual rock concert to raise money for art education programs at The Carnegie. This Saturday, those business pros are ditching their ties and jackets as Suits That Rock returns for an in-person concert at the new Covington Plaza. Be sure to visit the food trucks and cash bars as you rock out on the riverfront.

Oct 9, 7:30 pm, Covington Plaza Outdoor Amphitheater, 1 Madison Ave., Covington

Asian Food Fest

Sample dishes from more than 10 Asian countries and 25 vendors on the newly renovated Court Street Plaza this weekend. Of course, food is the focus of this two-day festival, but the event also features live cultural entertainment—like Filipino and Chinese dances and Japanese Taiko drums—local craft and Asian beer, and activities for the whole family.

Oct 9 & 10, Court Street Plaza, E. Court Street between Vine & Walnut, downtown
