COVINGTON, Ky. (WXIX) - Organizers of BLINK Cincinnati announced the 2022 Art, Light & Culture Festival will be returning to Northern Kentucky.

Covington is the only city where BLINK will happen in Northern Kentucky for 2022.

“We would love to consider Newport as an option,” Executive Director of BLINK Justin Brookhart said when asked about other cities participation in BLINK for the future.

Last experienced by over 1.3M people in 2019, BLINK, Illuminated by ArtsWave, welcomes all to the Cincinnati and Northern Kentucky region October 13-16, 2022.

“It’s a special event, and we can’t wait for the festival of lights to appear here in 2022,” Covington Mayor Joe Meyer said.

Free and open to the public, the four-day, 30 city block, outdoor art experience features light displays, interactive elements and cultural events dotted through the basin. When it arrived first in 2017, it offered officials a chance at rebranding urban core neighborhoods rejuvenated after decades of disinvestment.

The 2019 festival was the Tri-State’s largest event ever, according to the Cincinnati USA Regional Chamber.

BLINK is produced by Agar, the Haile Foundation and the Cincinnati USA Regional Chamber.
