Open 6am-11pm


The Cincinnati Black Music Walk of Fame welcomes you to a family-friendly interactive musical experience that brings history to life through immersive technology. Black music has a long and wide-ranging history in Cincinnati, Hamilton County, and Southwest Ohio. We celebrate this extraordinary legacy.

For generations, the impact of this region’s Black musicians, songwriters, and industry professionals has reverberated around the world, shaping everything from funk, jazz, pop, and gospel, to hip-hop, classical, R&B, and rock. The Cincinnati Black Music Walk of Fame’s immersive experience connects this legacy to the future. We invite you to listen, learn, dance, sing, and feel the energy and soul of these amazing artists.

Along your journey through Cincy’s music scene, you will find QR codes printed on the informational kiosks along the walkways. Scan any of these QR codes to take a deeper dive into an artist’s history and legacy—you’ll also be able to view an augmented reality experience that brings the artist’s work to life! 

At the interactive exhibits on the top level of the park, QR codes will allow you to capture, save, and share video of yourself dancing to famous jams from Cincinnati artists or performing on stage with some of your favorite inductees. 

This entertaining, interactive, and enriching multi-layered attraction is open to the public and accessible for all to enjoy.
