RoeblingFest 2017 will commemorate the 150th anniversary of the completion of the iconic John A. Roebling Bridge. The historic suspension bridge between Covington (KY) and Cincinnati (OH) was completed in the summer of 1867.
RoeblingFest will take place on Saturday, June 17th in the Roebling Point area at the Covington end of the bridge.
One highlight of RoeblingFest 2017 will be a presentation by Kriss Roebling of New York City. Kriss is a direct descendant of John Roebling, the designer and builder of the bridge that now bears his name.
This will be the 13th Annual RoeblingFest. It is billed as a Celebration of Art, Architecture, History, and Engineering.
RoeblingFest is an activity of the Covington-Cincinnati Suspension Bridge Committee — the citizens group dedicated to the preservation and enhancement of the John A. Roebling Bridge.
