Our Cincinnati Weekend Picks: Sep 8 – 10

Need something to do this weekend? We’ve got you covered.

Enjoy one of the first Oktoberfests in the city, visit a classic wine festival, see a movie, spot some cryptids, see a musical about the King of Pop and cheer on the Rally Reds this weekend.


Covington Oktoberfest

Covington’s version of this German classic takes place this weekend, and has expanded this year to include W. 5th Street. Full of local food, local art, and—of course—lots of local beer, this is sure to be a hit. Pröst!
Sep 8-10, Mainstrasse Village, Covington

Vinoklet Art & Wine Festival

The annual fest is back for its 24th year. As always, it is free to attend, and will sport lots of live music, amazing art, plenty of food, and PLENTY of wine.
Sep 8-10, 11069 Colerain Avenue, Dunlap

Forest Park Family Movie Night

Feel like seeing a movie? Forest Park is showing the Super Mario Bros Movie (the animated one from earlier this year, not the original) for free—popcorn and snow cones included.
Sep 8, 1201 W. Kemper Rd, Forest Park

Covington Cryptid Fest

“Cryptids – like the Loveland Frogman, Mothman, and the Cincinnati Octoman – are creatures that people believe exist, but can’t prove… yet.” This bizarre festival promises plenty of out-of-this-world entertainment alongside plenty of food and drink vendors. Keep your eyes peeled and maybe you’ll even spot a cryptid.
Sep 9, 321 MLK Boulevard, Covington

MJ: The Musical

This off the wall multi-Tony Award winning musical is finally startin’ somethin’ in Cincinnati. Centered around the making of Michael Jackson’s 1992 World Tour, you’ll come away learning more than you ever knew about the King of Pop. It’s sure to be a thriller.
Sep 8-10, 650 Walnut St, Cincinnati

Cincinnati Reds vs. St. Louis Cardinals

If the Reds sweep the Cardinals this weekend, their playoff chances are through the roof. Lose, and they’re probably out of the race. Consider this our longest “GO REDS!” of all time.
Sep 8-10, Great American Ball Park, 100 Joe Nuxhall Way, downtown
