Latonia, Kentucky – Let the good times roll with Unlock the Block Music Fest. Join us for the inaugural event created to activate community vibrancy and potential in Northern Kentucky! The festival’s setting - Latonia, KY (a neighborhood of Covington) - was chosen as the site for the music fest because of its emerging developments, engaged community, and rich history. Will you help unlock the block?
The festival takes place on Saturday, July 22 from 4:00 p.m. to 10:00 p.m. at the Ritte's Corner Historic District in Latonia at the corner of Decoursey Ave. and West Southern Avenue.
Unlock the Block will feature lively bands, all with Northern Kentucky roots: DV8, a rock cover band; Ben Walz Band, an acoustic folk/rock blend; and The Turkeys, folk/rock and Americana.
Beyond the music, the festival places emphasis on supporting the neighborhood and region by including local businesses. Enjoy craft beers from Rhinegeist Brewery and Wooden Cask Brewing Company, as well as mixed drinks from Second Sight Spirits. Food vendors include local favorites such as Chick-fil-A Newport Pavilion, Smokin’ This and That BBQ, Shiver Popsicles, KONA Ice, Dan The Corn Man, and more.
