Glier's Goettafest runs eight days this summer

When Glier’s Goettafest returns this summer it will be bigger than ever before. Like the Coachella music festival in California (minus the ultra-expensive musical lineup and plus lots more goetta), the event will encompass two weekends and eight days, running July 25-28 and August 1-4 at Newport's Festival Park at the Levee.

The popular local event will again feature lots of local music, family-friendly games and attractions and that unusual oats/meat concoction known as goetta, available in standard and unique forms, like goetta fudge and pizza.

Here's the overview from the fest's website:

Bigger than Las Vegas New Year's Eve.  That’s what Glier’s Goettafest is to the goetta devotees of the world.  A weekend stuffed from top to bottom with live entertainment, family-focused goetta games, and super inventive food, what makes it all so grand is the gathering of the goetta-lovin’ community who travels from all corners of the country, to decorate with festivity and joy Northern Kentucky’s Newport on the Levee at the breathtaking Ohio Riverfront.

Glier’s Goettafest will again be a free event. Visit for more details.
