What is Great Outdoor Weekend?

Great Outdoor Weekend presents opportunities for children and adults to sample the best outdoor recreation and nature awareness programs available in Greater Cincinnati region. Each fall there are over 100 events available—all are free and open to the public. 

Many of these events repeat throughout the year, so if you can't get to everything you want in these two days, don't stress - just check with the organization's own website now that you know what they offer! (Admission fees may apply outside of Great Outdoor Weekend).
