(Dublin, OH) – Bridge and High Streets in Historic Dublin will close Thursday Oct. 3 as the City hosts Fore!Fest, a street festival to commemorate The Presidents Cup and showcase Dublin as Ohio’s most prestigious golf address. Fore!Fest, held from 5 to 10 p.m., will feature five outdoor entertainment venues, food trucks, roaming entertainers and specials in the Historic Dublin restaurants, pubs and shops. The festival is free of charge and open to the public.
Banners representing Dublin’s 18 Most Memorable Golf Moments will be displayed along the Bridge Street bridge along with The Presidents Cup float that was created for Dublin’s parades. Special golf-themed merchandise will be sold in Frog Park. Bagpipers will perform on the east end of the bridge.
The Dublin Arts Council’s new “Playing Through” Street Piano will be featured with Dave Powers performing at the top and bottom of each hour and will leave plenty of time for guests to interact and play the piano themselves.
