The annual, weekend-long beer festival Bockfest, in Over-the-Rhine, is back Friday, Feb. 28, kicking things off with a parade, followed by festivities that include a 5K run. All activities require some road closures throughout the weekend.

The Bockfest parade and 5K take place this weekend, and as a result, many Downtown streets will be closed starting Friday, March 1.

  Bockfest, that celebration of Cincinnati’s brewing tradition, Over-the Rhine, and spring, which we all need so desperately right now, starts Friday.

The New Bockfest 5K

Feb 15, 2013

It’s growing very close to the serious running season, and there’s a new run on the horizon that’s part of a newly dubbed Christian Moerlein Beer Series and part of the ever-growing Flying Pig Marathon events. The new Bockfest 5K will be part of the annual Over the Rhine beer festival. Iris Simpson Bush from the Flying Pig Marathon is in The Front Row with Betsy Ross to talk about all three stages of the Beer Series, some additions to the Flying Pig, and the promotion of healthy lifestyles for people of all ages.
