Slimy, slippery and salty, a three-word alliteration; it could refer to many things savory and unsavory. This festival deals in the savory category of those adjectives: oysters.

Let's get this out of the way now… it’s a literal sausage-fest for lack of a better term. Cincinnati's own Queen City Sausage arranged the celebration of all things meat in tubular casing.
