1. Birds of a Feather Music and Arts Festival at Thornhill Farm in Morningview is the place to be for some of Cincinnati’s most prolific local acts, as well as some national names in rock and folk. It’s the festival’s inaugural year, so it’s the perfect way to check “try something new” off your summer bucket list. August 17–20. birdsofafeatherfest.com

2. The annual HogJam Music Festival in Franklin boasts camping, outdoor concerts, and… a hog roast. It’s basically summer incarnate. August 25–27. hogjammusicfestival.com

3. The Taste of OTR at Washington Park will take the stress out of picking just one boutique-y restaurant at which to spend your dollars…and your calories. Taste things from here and there while your kids enjoy the park, and you enjoy a local feast. August 26–17. tendermerciesinc.org/5th-annual-taste-otr

4. Bewilderfest at Urban Artifact is a music festival that asks the 30+ performers to play music outside of their regular repertoire to “adventure outside of their comfort zone.” You can try some of the brewery’s unique beers (they’re known for sour brews with eccentric flavors like pickle and key lime) and hear a new take on local music. August 25–17. artifactbeer.com

5. For something family-friendly and familiar, the Ohio Renaissance Festival is back to quench your theme-party thirst. Costumes, crafts, and turkey legs make this annual fest one of the region’s continued favorites. September 2–10. renfestival.com
