CINCINNATI - The new Washington Park is not just depending on its new scenery and playground to get Tri-Staters stopping by; the Over-the-Rhine park has a full schedule of summer events as well.
Here's a list of their free, weekly programming:
Tri-Staters are encouraged to gather around the bandstand, and enjoy free performances from the likes of Jake Speed & The Freddies, The Comet Bluegrass All-Stars, and many more. The Tillers perform on July 18.
Tri-Staters can dance or simply sit and listen to the soulful Jazz. The P&G Big Band will perform on the main stage on July 19.
R&B and Neo Soul performances will take place every Friday from both local and national artists. Neo-Soul artist, Dwele, will perform July 13. He has worked with the likes of Earth, Wind & Fire and Kanye West. Also, performing on July 13 is Under New Orders, Darris Sneed & The Pulse, as well as several deejays. Mahogany's will also be in the park, serving their soul food combinations.
The goal of the one-day event is to get together the creative minds and skilled hands of local artists, entrepreneurs and enthusiasts. Learn more at www.thecityflea.com .
