Get Outside During Cincinnati’s Great Outdoor Weekend

Events are happening September 23-24 across Greater Cincinnati

Recently ranked fourth-best in the nation for parks, Greater Cincinnati is home to an abundance of beautiful green spaces, nature preserves, parks, and trails — and each year Green Umbrella encourages everyone to get outside and choose from over 100 free, family-friendly events during Great Outdoor Weekend.

Great Outdoor Weekend

Now in its 20th year, the two-day event will take place on September 23 and 24 at locations across Southwest Ohio, Northern Kentucky, and Southeast Indiana. Throughout the weekend, kids and adults of all ages can sample a wide range of outdoor recreation and nature awareness programs. Canoe the Little Miami River, help install an orchard, stargaze, or venture out on a nature scavenger hunt. From hiking and paddling to butterfly tagging, birding, and fishing, there’s something for everyone!

We continue to learn more about the countless benefits that spending more time outdoors provides to our mental and physical health. From reducing stress and anxiety to increasing vitamin D, outdoor activities help improve self-esteem, ability to focus, and quality of sleep. Connect with nature during Great Outdoor Weekend and take some time for yourself, meet up with friends, or plan a family outing.

These events are made possible and presented by Green Umbrella. Green Umbrella is the regional sustainability alliance of Greater Cincinnati, with hundreds of members passionate about enhancing the environmental health and vitality of our region. They lead collaboration, incubate ideas and catalyze solutions that create a resilient, sustainable region for all.
