Merchants and Music’s Kids Zone will be open on Saturday, September 25, 2021, from 2:00-7:00pm. The Kids Zone will showcase Cincinnati Circus acts featuring princesses, juggling shows, fire shows, tightrope walking and juggling workshops, a bubble wagon, a misting car wash, face painting, balloons, carnival games, inflatable slides and more for FREE! They will be joined by Looney Ballooney, Gabbard Entertainment and Maxwell Fisher. We will have food trucks and vendors including Kona Ice, Cookiefection, and Cups and Cones! Join us for a family friendly, fun, free day in Tower Park!

Bret Michaels is returning to Fort Thomas for Merchants and Music on Saturday, September 25, 2021 from 5 p.m. to Midnight!  Our headliner was last here in 2015 and told us, “Don’t change a thing!  This is like a backyard barbecue and I want to come back.”  We took him at his word.  The guy who brought us Poison, who has sold over 45 million records, who has so many credits in reality TV and music to his name.  What Fort Thomas remembers is his visit to our VA Hospital—how he visited every patient personally.  How he brought veterans and our public servants up on stage.  A class act with a great band.

David Tucker is from Bracken County and makes his home in Nashville these days.  His debut album, Kentucky Bred, was a standout.

Borderline is a Campbell County favorite!  We’re glad to welcome them back to M&M.

Fort Thomas’ own The Leftovers is returning!  Their energy is contagious!

Our After-Party features Mad Costanza.  What a way to end the party!
