The festival is a collaborative effort between most of the Arena District bars, including Patio, Cantina, Saloon, The Social Room, Bar Louie, Park Street Tavern, Brothers, GasWerks and Callahan’s. The main action happens outside on a roped-off Park Street, with various specials and events inside the bars.
This year’s festival will refreshingly feature some of our great local breweries, wineries and distilleries: Watershed Distillery, Middle West Spirits, Tessora Limone, Buckeye Vodka (Dayton), Zauber Brewing, Seventh Son Brewing, Neil House Brewery, Four String Brewing, Brothers Drake Meadery, Seven Brothers Distilling (Panesville) and Camelot Cellars will all be be present. And given that the event is sponsored by Yuengling, I’m sure there will be plenty of that, too.
There will also be a Food Truck Roundup with The Cheesy Truck, Potabilities, Paddy Wagon, Holy Smoke BBQ, Short North Bagel Deli, Street Thyme, Hot Pita Truck, Sublime Smoke, Dan’s Deli, King of the Hill Cafe, Earth’s Crust, Rolly=Pulley’s, The Burrito Bus, Island Noodles, Aunt Carla’s Boosh, Yellow Boys Polish Boys, Motormouth Food Truck, Yerba Buena Latin Grill, Spud Bus, The Hungry Monkey, Sophie’s Gourmet Pierogi, Mojo Tago, Tatoheads, Schneider’s Funnel Cake, D’s Dogs and Kona Ice.
