Hilltop Bean Dinner Festival

The Hilltop Bean Dinner Festival is an 80 year old tradition being held every June in Columbus’ Westgate Park. Save the date for Saturday, June 24th from 10AM-5PM.

Despite the name – we don’t sit around a table eating beans! The event is a family friendly festival remembering the history that made the Columbus west side. During the Civil War – the area now known as Westgate Park was a Civil War prison camp called “Camp Chase”. While Westgate is now a gorgeous neighborhood – it used to be a very feared place by the Confederate soldiers. The soldiers were fed a ration of beans twice a day. While we remember the nation divided during the Civil War – the Hilltop bean dinner unites people from all around Columbus in this one day of Music, a Variety of Food (including the famous beans), Arts and Craft Vendors, and an Antique Car Show.
