Second Sunday on Main

Join us for another Second Sunday on Main on August 11. This month’s theme is “Fun in the Sun,” and we have so many activities and events lined up, we can’t think of a more fun place to be this Sunday than right here on Main Street. SSOM runs 12-5 PM in historic Over-The-Rhine and is always free and open to the public. Join your friends and neighbors for what is sure to be “Fun in the Sun” in OTR.

  • Art on the Streets will present a variety of performers to play and create serendipitous fun for everyone. Check them out in their tents at the ends of the street.
  • Main Street’s shops, galleries, and restaurants will be open for the day, and many will be offering sales and specials! Dozens of local vendors will be selling treats, soaps, vintage clothing, and more.
  • Enjoy a tasty lunch from one of the many food trucks, or a cold beer from the Moerlein beer garden.

Take a peek at what else you can expect this Sunday:
