Still Smiling Fest presented by Cincy Nice

One day festival centered on music, art and joy.

Still Smiling Fest returns! Join Cincy Nice in Five Points Alley for a moment of shared music, art and joy.

The annual day-to-night event transforms the Five Points Alley community courtyard into a happy oasis. This year’s event will feature global music acts including Colombia-based Tei Shi and New Orleans-based Flagboy Giz alongside emerging regional music acts including New Thousand, Lauren Eylise, Khari and several more. In addition, fest goers will enjoy live art making and activations, local food vendors and pop-up thrift shops.

Still Smiling is a mantra born from the pandemic. It’s a reminder that even in the most challenging of times, we’re still here. We still have each other. We’re still choosing to smile.
