      History of The Taste of Cincinnati

      The Taste was first held in 1979 as a one-day festival in Piatt Park, which is now known as Garfield Park, with only about 5,000 attendees. Over the next couple of years, it kept growing and growing. By 2007, the event moved to Fifth Street to spotlight the newly renovated Fountain Square to bring the event closer to the center of Downtown. In 2024, the Taste of Cincinnati is the nation’s longest-running culinary arts festival. Over 550,000 people attend the event each year to try Cincinnati’s gems!
