2 5 NEWPORT'S MENU Situated just across the Ohio River from downtown Cincinnati, Newport is one of northern Kentucky's premier destinations for cuisine and entertainment. The city highlights its cultural heritage and culinary scene throughout the warm-weather months with a variety of events, any of which would be exciting for groups. Festival season starts June 4 with A Taste of Newport. During this one-day street festival, local restaurants and other businesses offer samples of their most popular items at low prices, allowing visitors to taste the best of the city. A few days later, Newport Italianfest, June 8-11, highlights authentic Italian food and features Italian music performed by artists from around the country. On July 14-16, the city hosts the Bacon, Bourbon and Brew Festival, which celebrates the area's histories and connections to the brewing and pork industries, as well as Kentucky's bourbon heritage. The Great Inland Seafood Festival takes place August 10-13, and the season wraps up with the Newport Oktoberfest, which runs September 22-24. W W W.N E W P O R TK Y.G OV 4
