Our largest fundraiser to make the largest impact.
After two years as a hybrid community picnic, the Hats Off Luncheon will return to an in-person event on October 7, 2022! The luncheon is one of the city's premier fundraisers, supporting all Cincinnati Parks wherever the need is greatest. Guests are treated to a champagne reception followed by a gourmet luncheon. To date, the event has raised more than $4 million in support of Cincinnati Parks.
(Ticket sales are now closed)
While traditionally, the Hats Off Luncheon has been in the spring, this year’s event will take place in the Fall, on October 7th, in the beautiful John G. & Phyllis W. Smale Riverfront Park. We couldn’t be more excited! This year’s event will be a celebration of not only the beautiful colors of Fall in YOUR Cincinnati Parks, but a celebration of being together again, in person, while enjoying the lush gardens and spectacular overlooks of the Roebling Bridge and the Ohio River. Come join us this fall and rediscover why we fall in love with parks.
