River City Kosher Barbeque Festival

11:00 am

Are you hungry for some ‘que?
Kosher barbeque, that is.
We’ve got what you want!

On behalf of Northern Hills Synagogue, we would like to cordially invite you to join us for the 1st Annual River City Kosher Barbeque Festival, a day of food, learning and fun –
Sunday, June 25, 2017 from 11:00 AM to 3:00 PM at Northern Hills Synagogue, 5714 Fields Ertel Road in Deerfield Township.

We will serve mouth-watering kosher barbeque: brisket, chicken, and vegetarian options. With an array of barbeque tastings, we’re sure to have barbeque just the way you like it… maybe some ways you’ve never tried it before… and all of it kosher (under Rabbinical supervision).

Taste the delicious barbeque you know and love through the lens of kosher cuisine. Come and learn with members of Northern Hills Synagogue about what makes food kosher and how kosher barbeque is made.

The Festival will provide a fun day for everyone. In addition to yummy food, you will enjoy klezmer music (think Eastern European Jewish jazz) by the Queen City Klezmorim and traditional old-time string band music by the Corncobs. A Kids Zone with fun games and a bouncy house will entertain the children and you’ll have a chance to win wonderful prizes with in our silent auction.

All proceeds from the River City Kosher BBQ Festival will support Northern Hills Synagogue and its key community projects: The OTR Soup Kitchen, Ethan Kadish Foundation, The Freestore Foodbank, The Jewish Family Services Food Pantry, and The Interfaith Hospitality Network.

We look forward to meeting you on June 25th!

Run With The Pack Trail Race

08:00 am

AJ Jolly Park has been a staple in the Campbell County Community for more than 50 years now. They have held festivals and events that many people in the area have patronized throughout the years. And, although most people know AJ Jolly for the wonderful camping opportunities it offers, there is a little-known treasure within the park that is hardly taken advantage of…

The trails at AJ Jolly Park were built and are maintained by the Northern Kentucky Horse Network. Because they are primarily used as horse trails, most patrons of the park either don’t seek them out or don’t think to use them. However, thanks to the ingenuity of the trail developers, these trails are a perfect place to go when you’re looking for a quality workout with a beautiful view!
