Ring in the roaring 2020s with the 10th-annual Cincy Prohibition party to celebrate the failure of the Volstead Act and 18th Amendment, which prohibited the manufacture, sale or transportation of intoxicating liquors in the U.S.

Band the Cincy Brass will be bringing the speakeasy spirit to the Woodward Theater for an evening of dancing, drinking and dressing up. Head to Arnold’s Bar & Grill beforehand for a happy hour (5:30-7:30 p.m.) with the musical Queen City Sisters.

The city’s longest-running tavern will be the step-off site for an anti-Temperance Movement parade leading to the Woodward. Expect entertaining homemade protest signs and plenty of flappers.

8 p.m.-12:30 a.m. Saturday, Feb. 8. $20 advance; $25 day of. The Woodward Theater, 1404 Main St., Over-the-Rhine, facebook.com/radpadentertainment.
