Make a family night out at St. Rita's Fest 2012 | Community Spirit
EVENDALE, OH (FOX19) - A festival season in the Greater Cincinnati area would not be complete without a visit to St. Rita's Festival in Evendale.
What began as “Visiting Day” in 1916 for families of children attending, St. Rita School, has become not only one of the oldest and largest, but one of the favorite annual festivals in the Greater Cincinnati area.
Money raised helps to ensure that St. Rita School for the Deaf will continue its rich tradition of teaching deaf children and other children who need special methods of communication or technological support, infants through 21 years of age, from across the country and around the world, to achieve what we hold most important in society-an education, a family, a career-a full life.
While at St. Rita Fest 2012, you can enjoy our famous turtle soup, which continues to be made by the same family who originated the recipe in 1916. The fifth generation is now in charge of making the delicious soup (400 gallons) in the weeks before the festival.
Enjoy over 100 booths including Texas Hold ‘em, Black Jack, pull tabs, and much more.
Children and families can enjoy the best Kiddie Land in town, where you can enjoy the thrill of rides, play tons of games, and eat plenty of food all in an area designated for families and children.
On Sunday, from 4pm-8pm, purchase you can ride all you want for $20 dollars.
To cut down on parking hassles, shuttles are running all weekend from Landmark Church, Wal-Mart Evendale, and the GE plant.
Here are festival hours: July 13: 7pm-11:00 pm l July 14: 4pm-11:00 pm l July 15: 4pm-10pm
