The thought of an
“underground” party might conjure up images of a chic 1920s speakeasy or perhaps
a creepy warehouse rave. Neither is true of Saturday’s Scion Exposed tunnel party,
which is literally underground, at 220 Central Ave. beneath the Second Street overpass.
Part car show, part concert, Scion Exposed features a pop-up skate park, food
trucks, drinks and more, all free from 2 p.m.-midnight. RJD2 headlines the
music stage with support from Chairlift, DAAP Girls and more performing
throughout the day. RSVP here for free admission; Scion
owners get advanced entrance at noon.
to St. Patrick’s Day during the Cincinnati Celtic Festival
Saturday and Sunday. The free fest moves from Fountain Square to Washington
Park this year, but continues to celebrate all things Celtic with plenty of
music, food and entertainment. Knock back some Guinness, cheer on Irish dancers
and get jig-y to the sounds of bagpipes between noon and 10:30 p.m. both days.

taking over the park, this month’s City Flea moves up the street to the lot at
Twelfth and Vine. Vendors will be hawking everything from clothing and
accessories to home goods and fine art from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. The City Flea is a fun one-stop spot to
support local artisans and sellers all under one roof. Sans roof.
hogging all the fun this weekend — Milford’s Longstone Street Festival brings

downtown Milford, stop in a few shops and restaurants and enjoy the music from
