DJ Festival at

Sawyer Point

We're planning the second annual DJ Festival in 2024

We're going to fill the parks with music, roller skating, dancing, food trucks, vendors, and fun.


DJ Festival at The ICON Festival Stage

The records were spinning on The ICON Festival Stage at Smale Park for our first annual DJ Festival, day-long festival at the John G. and Phyllis W. Smale Riverfront Park outdoor stage, celebrating both local and international DJs.

This festival showcased turntable talent from different decades and backgrounds in conjunction with the 50th anniversary of Hip Hop. The event is in partnership with DJ Vader, Cincinnati Parks, MEMI, Cincinnati Music Accelerator, and Elementz.

Save the date: June 1, 2024

In 2024, this event will move to Sawyer Point with DJs on the stage and at the Riverfront Rink. The day will include music, roller skating and activities. Admission is free.
