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 the 8 counties surrounding the Cincinnati region. This fall there are more than 120 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) Also, bookmark our amazing website MeetMeOutdoors.com for year-round acitivities to help you answer the call of the wild!
