Long before its grandiose, multimillion-dollar renovation and opening celebration, Washington Park has remained an anchor and mainstay amidst the effervescent downtown and Over-the-Rhine arts communities. In celebration of the park and neighborhood’s renaissance, four of the area’s leading performing arts organizations, including soloists from Cincinnati Opera, dancers from Cincinnati Ballet, May Festival Chorus singers and the full Cincinnati Pops Orchestra, will gather in a rare joint performance to offer tribute to the park, which now offers a reborn, vibrant gathering place for future arts events.
Bring blankets and lawn chairs and spread out to enjoy classic sounds and sights. Free. 7:30-10 p.m. Friday, Aug. 3. Washington Park. 1230 Elm St., Over-the-Rhine. washingtonpark.org/events.
