Set in the City’s historic downtown and along the scenic banks of the mighty Ohio River, the Navy Bean Festival is filled with great food including the signature Navy Bean Soup and homemade cornbread. For the perfect small town festival just add rides & games, live music, a parade, and even more Navy Bean Soup. (Yes…it’s THAT good!)
