75 musical acts by national, regional and local artists provided music for every taste at the Tall Stacks Music, Arts & Heritage Festival (held in October 2003). The Greater Cincinnati Tall Stacks Commission dedicated the entire five-day music festival in memory of John Hartford.

Tall Stacks was first held as part of Cincinnati's Bicentennial year in 1988. It was one of five events that took place throughout 1988 to celebrate Cincinnati's 200th birthday. Tall Stacks was by far the most popular and well attended of those five events. Because of the unique qualities of the festival, the Toronto Globe & Mail and the Chicago Tribune named Tall Stacks one of the top ten events in the world that year. The first Tall Stacks welcomed 14 riverboats and over 700,000 people to the city's riverbanks for three days in October. Tall Stacks launched a legacy of pride in Cincinnati's rich river history and rekindled the nation's love affair with the steamboat.
