The 2019 Cincinnati Festival of Faiths looks forward to showcasing Cincinnati’s religious diversity, celebrating various religions’ contributions to our community’s quality of life, developing our community’s exemplary interfaith relations and collaboration, and building and enhanced interfaith unity. This year's theme is continues to realize the importance of Compassion Through Action with a focus on Becoming a Beloved Community.

Join us this year for an expanded festival that includes cultural appreciation and learning, music and entertainment, compassionate conversations, youth activities, community service, merchandise vendors, meditation, an interfaith devotional observance, and of course, delicious food.

In 2018, the festival welcomed 2,000 community members, 25 faith communities and 79 exhibitors who shared in a rich cultural experience as one Cincinnati community. This year, we look forward to expanding to include 90 exhibitors, 30 faith communities and 13 world religions.

The Kick-Off celebration will take place at the National Underground Railroad Freedom Center on Thursday evening, September 5, 2019.

The Festival is organized by the Bridges of Faith Trialogue. Admission and parking are FREE for the Cincinnati Festival of Faiths.
