The 4 best parts of the 40th annual Taste of Cincinnati — and some have nothing to do with the food

As the Taste of Cincinnati enters its 40th year, organizers work per usual to keep the event new while also retaining those popular elements that keep hungry Cincinnatians returning.

See below for what’s new at the Taste along with reassurances that your favorite parts aren’t going anywhere.

1. Music Bash

Apparently, 45 live musical acts on five stages is not enough. To ensure Taste-goers have more live music than they know what to do with, organizers are inaugurating a special, separate “Music Bash.” The lineup is The B-52s (“Love Shack”), Rick Springfield (“Jesse’s Girl”), and Loverboy (“Working for the Weekend,” “Lovin’ Every Minute of It.”) The Bash will take place on May 27 at 5 p.m. at the Sentinel Street entrance onto 5th St. Tickets are $29.99.

2. New to the Taste

While food vendors at the Taste can fluctuate wildly from year to year, organizers say it’s slowed down a bit for 2018, allowing for a bit of continuity. That being said, there will be seven brand-new vendors offering their delicacies at the Taste this year. They are: Bridges (Nepalese), Dewey’s Pizza (craft pizzas, calzones, and salads), Quite Frankly (homemade beef franks and specialty sandwiches), Rovey’s Turkey (turkey burgers, sandwiches, dogs, and tacos), S.E.A. Cuisine Food Truck (Southeast Asian tacos, steak, sandwiches, rice, and salads), Sis’s on Monmouth (American comfort food), and Slice, Slice Baby (pizzas, calzones, and Italian subs).

3. Best of Taste

About a month before the Taste, mystery judges visited the upcoming vendors and handed out awards for best dishes in various categories. Alfio’s Buon Cibo, an Italian eatery, did particularly well, winning first place both for Best Restaurant Dessert (chocolate raspberry tiramisu), and Best Restaurant Entrée (veal short rib ravioli). Other first-place winners include Island Frydays for their jerk chicken pasta (Best Appetizer), Tickle Pickle for their mac and cheese with crushed BBQ grippos (Best Soup-Salad Side), and the Silver Ladle for their Silver Ladle Salad (Restaurant Best GoVibrant!). GoVibrant! items are those who meet the American Heart Association’s standards for low fat, cholesterol, and sodium.

Food trucks also got into the Best of Taste action. Adena’s Beefstroll cleaned up with their Ma’s meatball sub (Food Truck Best Entrée) and The Stroll (Best Food Truck Appetizer). Other winners include Packhouse for their jalapeno mac and cheese (Best Food Truck Soup-Salad Side), streetpops for their pineapple passionfruit streetpop (Best Food Truck GoVibrant!), and SugarSnap! for their “Make It A Sundae” Brownie (Best Food Truck Dessert).

4. Other Highlights

As if there wasn’t enough food, courtesy of Findlay Market, there will actually be a “Taste within the Taste.” Over 20 vendors – some from Findlay Market, others “foodpreneurs” from Findlay Kitchen, will provide the Taste of Findlay Market, a diverse grouping of “bites” that will be available all weekend.

Students from the Art of the Piano Festival, otherwise known as the classical “rock stars” of today and tomorrow, will perform on the main stage on May 26 at noon.

The Cincinnati Pops Poptet, the Cincinnati Pops Orchestra’s rhythm ensemble, will perform a series of standards and showtunes on the main stage on May 27 from 11 a.m.-12:30 p.m.

Last but certainly not least, local media celebrities will compete in the annual soapbox GoVibrant! Veggie Races on May 25 from noon-1 p.m.

7 reasons to go to Dayton History’s Heritage Day

Amongst the chirp of crickets and the glow of fireflies, Heritage Day with the Dayton Philharmonic signals the onset of summer.

>> 7 ways to celebrate Memorial Day in and around Dayton

>>PHOTOS: Heritage Day at Carillon Historical Park 2017

Held Memorial Day weekend at Carillon Historical Park, this family fun event will feature a Civil War encampment, the No Regrets Barbershop Quartet, Make It Dayton 3D Printing, one-room schoolhouse lessons, the Gem City swing dancers, rug-hooking, letterpress printing, gardening, woodworking, baking, high-wheel bicycle riding, Carillon Park Rail & Steam Society miniature train rides, the Clodbusters 19th century baseball team, the Carillon Park Concert Band, and of course, the Dayton Philharmonic Orchestra. 

>> EVENTS: Memorial Day in Dayton

Here are 7 highlights of Heritage Day: 

 

1. Food vendor splendor

Heart's Hot Dogs, KJ's Cajun Cuisine, Pita Pocket, Nanette's Country Kitchen, Ritter's Frozen Custard, Cumberland Kettle Corn, and Kona Ice will all make a triumphant return to Heritage Day. If you’re looking for a sit-down meal, you can enjoy lighter fare from Culp’s Café; for a hearty meal, visit Carillon Brewing Co. The brewery’s historic beer, Yuengling, Bud Light, and Goose Island 312 will all be available. 

 

2. Civil War history

For the first time ever, a Civil War encampment will be part of Heritage Day. Presented by the Ohio Valley Civil War Association, the encampment will feature costumed interpreters, including female historians who will interpret the role of women in the war effort. For over 20 years, the OVCWA has been staging Civil War re-enactments at landmark battlefields such as Gettysburg, Stones River and Antietam.  

Fun fact: During the Civil War, the Dayton community gathered at the Old Court House for telegraph updates. Abraham Lincoln spoke at the Old Court House on Sept. 17, 1859. 

 

3. Carillon Park Concert Band

After auditioning to participate, students from across the greater Dayton region unite to form this long-loved summertime ensemble. Selections include everything from marches to Broadway tunes to light classics.  

Fun fact: Conceived by famed musical director Clark Haines, the Carillon Park Concert Band traces its roots to the 1945 creation of the NCR band. For years, the ensemble played at the Old River Park bandshell alongside the park’s extensive recreational facilities, providing entertainment for NCR employees and their families. 

 

4. No brakes!

Look for the historical interpreter, dressed in Victorian era costume, riding the high-wheel bicycle across Carillon Historical Park. Make sure you don’t get in the way … there are no brakes on a high-wheel bike!  

Fun fact: By the mid-1880s, penny-farthing bicycles were fading into history, replaced by the modern two-wheel sprocket-and-chain safety bicycle. America was overtaken by the bicycle craze, and the Wright brothers capitalized on the momentum, opening the Wright Cycle Exchange in 1892 (later known as the Wright Cycle Co). 

 

The brothers built a high-end safety bike called the Van Cleve — named after their familial tie to Catherine Benham Van Cleve Thompson, who was purportedly the first female settler off the boat from Cincinnati to Dayton. Sprocket-and-chain technology, similar to that employed on the brothers’ bicycles, was also used on the Wrights’ aeroplanes. There are only five Van Cleve bicycles in the world, and two of them are at Carillon Park’s Wright Brothers Aviation Center. 

 

5. Bang!

Carillon Park early settlement interpreters will be firing a flint lock muzzle loader during Heritage Day, its sound hearkening to Dayton’s early years. Black powder is loaded into the gun, creating a loud bang that elicits shrieks of excitement across Carillon Park.  

Fun fact: Nineteen men and 17 women and children left Cincinnati for Dayton in March 1796. They traveled in three parties: the Samuel Thompson party, the George Newcom party, and the William Hamer party. Newcom Tavern (Est. 1796), Dayton’s oldest standing building, was also the city’s first jail, church, general store and Montgomery County’s first courthouse. It was dedicated at Carillon Park in May 1965.

6. All Aboard!

Established in 1984, the Carillon Park Rail & Steam Society operates its miniature railroad at Heritage Day. Rides are $1 per person, per ride, and the funds directly support the Carillon Park Rail & Steam Society. 

Fun fact: Near the end of the 19th century, the Barney & Smith Car Company was Dayton’s largest employer. Employing up to 2,000 people, Barney & Smith built a settlement known as the Kossuth Colony, a walled enclave comprised of some 40 structures, which housed Hungarian and Romanian immigrant workers. An original and opulent 1903 Barney & Smith rail car is located at Carillon Park’s Transportation Center. 

 

7. The Phil

With the sun setting over Carillon Park, the Dayton Philharmonic Orchestra will once again close Heritage Day, offering a special program featuring Dayton Ballet dancers and guest vocalist Felita LaRock. The Phil will perform "The Star Spangled Banner,” Copland’s “Lincoln Portrait,” Sousa’s “El Capitan March,” Tchaicovsky's "1812 Overture," and many other classic numbers and patriotic favorites.  

Fun fact: Founded in 1933, the Dayton Philharmonic Orchestra is one of the Miami Valley’s longest standing cultural organizations. Music Director Neil Gittleman has been on the philharmonic podium since September 1995, and he is only the fourth director in DPO history. From 1933-1975, Dr. Paul Katz served as conductor, and alongside longstanding executive director Miriam Rosenthal, he built the Dayton Philharmonic Orchestra — an integral piece of Dayton’s cultural fabric.

NFL owners approve new national anthem policy, will fine teams that allow players to kneel

Update 4:52 p.m. ET: U.S. vice president Mike Pence has responded to the NFL decision on Twitter, using the hashtag #winning.

Update 1:21 p.m. ET: The National Football League Players Association (NFLPA) issued a statement on the new NFL policy:

“The NFL chose to not consult the union in the development of this new “policy.” NFL players have shown their patriotism through their social activism, their community service, in support of our military and law enforcement and yes, through their protests to raise awareness about the issues they care about.

“The vote by NFL club CEOs today contradicts the statements made to our player leadership by Commissioner Roger Goodell and the Chairman of the NFL’s Management Council John Mara about the principals, values and patriotism of our League.

Our union will review the new “policy” and challenge any aspect of it that is inconsistent with the collective bargaining agreement.”

Original story: NFL owners approved a new policy Wednesday regarding players who wish to kneel during the national anthem, according to a statement by the National Football League

>> Read more trending news 

According to the NFL, individual teams will have the ability to fine players and other personnel who do not stand and, “show respect for the flag and the Anthem.”

The change will go into effect for the upcoming season, according to the Washington Post.

Players who choose not to stand during the national anthem may stay in the locker room or off-field while it is being played. 

The official statement from the National Football League states:

“The 32 member clubs of the National Football League have reaffirmed their strong commitment to work alongside our players to strengthen our communities and advance social justice. The unique platform that we have created is unprecedented in its scope, and will provide extraordinary resources in support of programs to promote positive social change in our communities. 

The membership also strongly believes that:

  1. All team and league personnel on the field shall stand and show respect for the flag and the Anthem.
  2. The Game Operations Manual will be revised to remove the requirement that all players be on the field for the Anthem.
  3. Personnel who choose not to stand for the Anthem may stay in the locker room or in a similar location off the field until after the Anthem has been performed.
  4. A club will be fined by the League if its personnel are on the field and do not stand and show respect for the flag and the Anthem.
  5. Each club may develop its own work rules, consistent with the above principles, regarding its personnel who do not stand and show respect for the flag and the Anthem.
  6. The Commissioner will impose appropriate discipline on league personnel who do not stand and show respect for the flag and the Anthem.”

In an official statement on the NFL website, NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell wrote:

“The policy adopted today was approved in concert with the NFL’s ongoing commitment to local communities and our country — one that is extraordinary in its scope, resources, and alignment with our players. We are dedicated to continuing our collaboration with players to advance the goals of justice and fairness in all corners of our society. 

The efforts by many of our players sparked awareness and action around issues of social justice that must be addressed. The platform that we have created together is certainly unique in professional sports and quite likely in American business. We are honored to work with our players to drive progress. 

It was unfortunate that on-field protests created a false perception among many that thousands of NFL players were unpatriotic. This is not and was never the case. 

This season, all league and team personnel shall stand and show respect for the flag and the Anthem. Personnel who choose not to stand for the Anthem may stay in the locker room until after the Anthem has been performed.

We believe today’s decision will keep our focus on the game and the extraordinary athletes who play it—and on our fans who enjoy it.”
