Save the Date

“Hats Off Around the World, Parks Around our City” will be the biggest and most talked about fundraiser in the city! We will celebrate the wide variety of parks and greenspaces that wrap around and through our 52 diverse neighborhoods.

Planning for the 2020 Hats Off Luncheon is well underway and the event promises to be a celebration that embraces the many cultures that make up our Queen city. Many of our Cincinnati Parks are backyards for families as well as gathering places for all members of our communities. Hats Off Around the World, Parks Around our City will celebrate our similarities and differences and unite to support our Cincinnati Parks.

In our celebration of the cultures and unique traditions that make up our Queen City, we ask this year’s attendees to celebrate with us by dressing in the attire that represents your culture, or pays respects to a culture you admire.

At the Luncheon

All who love and want to support our parks are welcome at Hats Off 2020! Be prepared for a multi-cultural immersive event that will excite your senses through color, tastes, music, fabulous international attire and of course, HATS. Once again, the 2020 Hats Off Luncheon will be a not to be missed Cincinnati social event! Remember, the date is October 2, 2020. It’s the Thursday before Memorial Day weekend. We’ll begin with a champagne toast at 11:00 AM, followed by the presentation of the Phyllis W. Smale Award and a gourmet lunch full of ethnic flavors.

Get Ready to After Party

Back by popular demand, there will be an After Party for sponsors and special ticket holders. Last year’s after party was so much fun we’re planning on a bigger crowd at the Anderson Pavilion. Yes, after party is just across the street! No need to park your car twice. You won’t want to miss this party – and we don’t want you to miss it!

Pop-Up Boutique

New in April 2020, we will host the first of its kind Pop-Up Boutique for Sponsors and Fascinator and above ticket holders. HOL’s 2020 featured milliner will be joined by specially curated vendors carrying a variety of ethnic accessories and attire for sale to complete your HOL outfit. The boutique will be set up in the lovely Theodore Berry International Friendship Park. Champagne and light bites will be served.

(This event was cancelled due to COVID-19.)
