WEBN Fireworks September 2, 2012 at Cincinnati’s beautiful Riverfront

Tags: , , , , , , ,

Featuring Cincinnati Bell WEBN Fireworks September 2, 2012 at Cincinnati’s beautiful Riverfront. Sawyer Point & Yeatman’s Cove at Bicentennial Commons.

P&G Riverfest at Sawyer Point opens at noon and runs until approximately 11 p.m. on the Sunday of Labor Day weekend.

This year it’s September 2nd, 2012. Fireworks begin at 9:05 PM.
P&G Riverfest is Greater Cincinnati and Northern Kentucky‘s big boom, the end of summer blowout that concludes with one of the largest fireworks displays in the Midwest – the Cincinnati Bell/WEBN Fireworks.

This signature Cincinnati event began more than 30 years ago when WEBN treated the tri-state to a fireworks show in honor of the radio station’s 10th anniversary. The party at Sawyer Point, held annually on the Sunday of Labor Day weekend, has grown into an all-day affair with music, food and family fun and entertainment all day (Cincinnati’s Sawyer Point is a no-alcohol zone for Riverfest).

Nearly a half-million people attend on both sides of the river. Highlights: the Ohio/Kentucky shout-off just before the fireworks, and WEBN’s soundtrack, choreographed with Rozzi’s Famous Fireworks.

WEBN Fireworks Train – 2012

Take a train ride from the Norwood Eagles Lodge to the riverfront and back to view the Cincinnati Bell WEBN Fireworks! Avoid all of the traffic and arrive in style with the LM&M Railroad for a night of fun!

Seating with the LM&M Railroad will be in one of our high capacity commuter coaches. Tickets are also availble for the Luxury or Dining Cars through the Cincinnati Dinner Train. These tickets will be for a second train leaving from a nearby location, and will follow the same route to the riverfront. Please view the Cincinnati Dinner Train website for additional information and to purchase tickets.

What is goetta?
Pronounced “get-uh,” goetta is the ultimate blend of pork, beef, whole-grain steel-cut oats, onions, and spices. Carefully crafted daily in slow-cooked small batches, Glier’s Goetta is the best-selling goetta in the world. Its crispy-creamy texture and unique flavors are most deliciously showcased simply browned, hot from the pan.

How did Goettafest come to be?
Goettafest was created by Glier Family as a way to celebrate their best-loved goetta, and to honor the loyalists who have made it a regional favorite. What began as a gathering in the beginning, has become a weekend-long goetta-focused fun festival bringing together hungry folks from all over the world. Set against the breathtaking backdrop that is Northern Kentucky’s Newport on the Levee, and featuring dozens of clever and inventive ways to enjoy goetta, Glier’s Goettafest is the official family reunion for goetta enthusiasts.

Is there an admittance fee to Goettafest?
Entry to Glier’s Goettafest is absolutely free. So is the continuous live entertainment – and world-class company, too. All sorts of beverages, including beer, are available for sale throughout Goettafest. And every bite of food is priced at a family-friendly point of $6 or less.

How did Glier’s Goettafest land at Newport on the Levee?
Newport on the Levee is the most central point in the land where goetta was born for goetta loyalists to meet. The great convenience of the venue is matched only by the picturesque and sweeping views of Downtown Cincinnati.

Where is the best place to park?
Go to Newport on the Levee’s main entrance parking first. If that is full, you will find many other lots in the blocks surrounding the event that are both convenient and reasonably priced.

What kind of handicap accessibility does Goettafest offer?
All of Newport on the Levee, the venue for Glier’s Goettafest, is handicap accessible. There are elevators at every level, including each one of the parking garage, and the site of Goettafest, specifically, at the top of the Levee, is accessible by a long incline ramp. Special arrangements may be made by contacting 859.291.1800.

May I bring my pet to Glier’s Goettafest?
Unfortunately, the City of Newport does not allow pets on Newport on the Levee property.

Is there any shade available at Glier’s Goettafest?
Goetta Place Hall is open to the public throughout the festival. A large, cool dining hall, it is the perfect place for sun-soaked goetta-lovers to enjoy their treats and each other’s company.

What is the best part of Glier’s Goettafest?
Why, the very best part of Glier’s Goettafest is the goetta, of course. Dozens and dozens of local food vendors come together at Goettafest, at the top of their goetta game. Each of their booths boasts three new goetta-centered recipes, two goetta-less snacks, and one dessert, without any duplication allowed throughout the festival. There’s a reason Glier’s Goettafest is one of the world’s largest celebrations of a single food – it’s the goetta.

What in the world is a goetta vending machine?
The goetta vending machine is one of the most famous traditions of Glier’s Goettafest. Offered only over festival weekend to goetta-revelers, at a very special celebration price, it dispenses goetta-love one one-pound roll at a time.

MainStrasse Village Association’s Oktoberfest

MainStrasse kicks off fest
German heritage honored

By Cindy Schroeder
The Cincinnati Enquirer

COVINGTON — For Thursday’s ceremonial opening of the MainStrasse Village Association’s Oktoberfest, everyone was German for a day, even Kentucky‘s second couple.

Lt. Gov. Steve Henry greeted the crowd and introduced his wife — former Miss America Heather French Henry, and their infant daughter Harper Renee — in halting German at the festival’s kickoff luncheon in Goebel Park.

IF YOU GO
• What: 23rd annual MainStrasse Village Oktoberfest
• When: 5 p.m. to 11 p.m. today, noon to 11 p.m. Saturday and noon to 9 p.m. Sunday.
• Where: Booths and entertainment are spread over four city blocks along the Sixth Street promenade and Philadelphia Street, as well as into Goebel Park in Covington’s MainStrasse Village.
• Attractions: German and other ethnic foods, more than 90 arts and crafts vendors, and musical entertainment that includes German bands, folk, rock ‘n roll, blues and country music. Also features pony rides, balloon makers and special children’s rides.
For $12, festivalgoers can buy an “all you can ride ticket” from noon to 5 p.m. Saturday and Sunday.
• Event parking: Free shuttle service will run continuously, stopping at Fifth Street near The Westin Hotel in Cincinnati, the IRS parking lot in Covington at Fourth and Johnson Sts., Jillian’s parking lot in Covington, Covington city lots at Seventh St. and Scott Blvd. and the RiverCenter complex, and the Fifth Third lot in Fort Wright at the corner of Dixie Hwy. and Sleepy Hollow Dr.
• Information: For directions or other information, call (513) 357-6246 or (859) 491-0458.
The orthopedic surgeon then joined Covington officials in making more than a half-dozen taps of the official Oktoberfest beer keg to open the 23rd annual German-themed event.

Billed as one of the “Top 20 Events in the Southeast” by the Southeast Tourism Society, the MainStrasse Oktoberfest opens at 5 p.m. today.

While he acknowledged his background “is probably English,” Mr. Henry praised Northern Kentucky‘s German heritage and strong sense of family.

He also complimented festival organizers for putting together a three-day celebration that traditionally draws more than 150,000, including “many from the other side of the river.”

“Every year, this gets a little bit bigger and a little bit better,” said Covington Vice Mayor Jerry Bamberger.

In keeping with the festival’s German heritage, Dr. Don Heinrich Tolzmann, president of the German American Citizens League of Greater Cincinnati received a Kentucky Colonel certificate and a key to the city of Covington on Thursday.

“People don’t realize how strong the German heritage is in Northern Kentucky,” the Green Township resident said. Evidence of that heritage is present, he said, in everything from numerous churches founded by Germans to fieldstone houses, a traditional German building form.

Besides the usual beer booths and German food staples from goetta to strudel, this year’s festival will showcase Heuboden Musikanten, a German band from Bavaria.

Fourteen members of the band will entertain crowds at five Tristate German-themed events this month, including Cincinnati’s Oktoberfest, Sept. 14-16.

“They were here several years ago, and they were a lot of fun,” said Mick Noll, a Northern Kentucky caterer who has manned a grill at each of the 22 previous MainStrasse Oktoberfests.

Also new this year is a Warsteiner beer emporium serving the world’s No.1-selling German beer.

But lest festival-goers engage in underage drinking or imbibe too much, uniformed and plainclothes police officers will be scattered throughout the festival area and its perimeter to maintain order.

“We will not tolerate any problems,” said Covington Police Spc. George Russell, who is handling the festival’s security detail. “It’s a family event, and we want to keep it that way.”

Taxis and Transit Authority of Northern Kentucky buses will be on hand to transport any guests who’ve had too much to drink. Workers at the beer booths also have received training on how to deal with inebriated customers, including refusal of service.

Members of the MainStrasse Village Association have mailed 900 fliers with the phone number of the event’s command center, which will take complaints from residents, said Donna Kremer, administrative coordinator for the MainStrasse Village Association.

I’ve received a couple of emails about an earlier posting of Goetta Fest going on in Northern Kentucky this weekend asking what Goetta is. So here’s the low down on Goetta!

Goetta

Goetta is a breakfast sausage of German origin that is popular in the greater Cincinnati area. It is primarily composed of ground meat and oats. Pronounced gétt-aa, ged-da or get-uh Americanized pronunciation, this dish originated with German settlers from the northwestern regions of Oldenburg, Hannover, and Westphalia who emigrated to the Cincinnati area in the 19th century. The word “Goetta” comes from the Low German word götte.

Goetta was originally a peasant dish, meant to stretch out servings of meat over several meals to conserve money.

The modern popularity of goetta in Cincinnati has led to it being called “Cincinnati Caviar”. Glier’s Goetta, the largest commercial producer of goetta, produces more than 1,000,000 lb (450 metric tons) annually, around 99% of which is consumed locally in greater Cincinnati.

While goetta comes in a variety of forms, all goetta is based around ground meat combined with pin head or steel cut oats. Usually goetta is made from pork shoulder or “Cali”, but occasionally contains equal parts pork and beef. Goetta is typically flavored with bay leaves, rosemary, salt, pepper, and thyme. It contains onions and sometimes other vegetables.

While similar to scrapple in that it contains a grain product and meat for the purpose of stretching out the meat over several days, goetta looks very different. Scrapple is made with meal while goetta uses steel-cut or chopped oats. The oats in goetta are much coarser than the fine powder used in scrapple, and adds texture to the dish.

Goetta is typically formed into small loaves, and then cut into squares and fried, often in the oil left over from browning the meats or in bacon drippings. Traditionally a breakfast food, goetta is often served with apple butter, ketchup, mustard, syrup, grape jelly, honey, or eaten by itself.

More recently, goetta has become an all purpose food eaten with any meal. New goetta products in the Cincinnati area include goetta burgers, goetta dogs, and goetta pizza. As the meat in goetta is precooked during the process of making the loaves, goetta can be kept in the freezer.

In the Greater Cincinnati area, there have been annual celebrations since 2004 with the central theme of Goetta.

The “Original Goettafest” is an annual cultural and culinary celebration held in Covington, Kentucky, just across the river from Cincinnati, Ohio. Covington has a rich heritage of German immigrants and this festival is held in MainStrasse Village, an area of Covington a few blocks from the Ohio River. In 2006, this celebration was held June 17 and 18.

“Glier’s Goettafest” is a similar event held at the Newport, Kentucky, levee on the Ohio River. The festival celebrates both the dish and Greater Cincinnati’s German American heritage. While the main focus of the festival is goetta, served in many different ways, it also typically includes music, dancing, and other public entertainment. In 2010, the festival was held August 6 through 8.

Glier’s provided guests with two large Cooling Stations in which they were able to get out of the sun and sit and relax.

Goetta, a German dish, is often compared to breakfast sausage or scrapple. It is a unique, delicious and nutritious mixture of pork, beef, steel-cut (pinhead) oats, and seasonings, which is carefully prepared by the Goetta Specialists at Glier’s.
