Glier’s Goettafest AUGUST 2,3,4,5 2018 – Newport, KY

Glier’s Goettafest
Riverfront Levee
1Riverboat Row
Newport, KY 41071
August 2, 2018 — August 5, 2018

All year long, we at Glier’s Goetta are delighted by the letters, pictures, recipes, and very personal family accounts that come to us every day. They come to us from all over, really. And they are connected by one thing – goetta. However big or small, each special memory has become a thread in the lovingly woven quilt that is our history.

Goettafest was born from the goetta taste, the goetta tradition that inspires its far-reaching community of fans to reach out daily. We just knew that tradition was dear enough to the goetta-loving public to bring us altogether. To bring hungry folks from all the corners of the country, and beyond. We just knew that if there was goetta, the goetta loyalists would come.

And, oh, have they come. What started as little more than a goetta gathering in 2001, has exploded into the much-anticipated, save-room-in-your-belly, plan-your-family-vacation-around event that it is today. There are games and music and more goetta grub than any Glier could have imagined. But it is always the revelers that make Goettafest a festival. It’s the layers of family history, the excitement in their eyes, and the lip-smacking smiles they bring to the weekend that make Glier’s Goettafest a true celebration.

THE TOTAL CELEBRATION
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.

ALL THINGS GOETTA
Unlike any other reunion where the highlight is Aunt Mabel’s macaroni salad, the glory of this (Glier’s Goetta) family reunion, shines in bite after bite of clever cuisine laced with the crispy-creamy treat that brings this community together – goetta. In fact, it is only at Goettafest that the very best culinary craftspeople in the area set up shop side-by-side to flirt with the tastebuds of the faithful. From fudge to pizza, their goetta-based creations test the limits of goetta as an ingredient.

The Ohio State Fair has been going on since Oct. 2 – 4, 1850 to present.

The first Ohio State Fair was planned for September 1849, but an outbreak of Asiatic cholera forced the cancellation of those plans. The following year, later dates were set to lessen the risk of cholera. Even so, Darius Lapham, the superintendent of the grounds, died of the disease just a few weeks before the opening date.

Camp Washington (two miles east of downtown Cincinnati) was the site of the first Ohio State Fair, Oct. 2 – 4, 1850. The site was described as 8 to 10 acres with grass slopes, shade trees and numerous tents. The grounds were enclosed by a 10-foot-high board fence. Cattle were tethered to a railing along the carriage road. And the rest is history!………………
