Opening Day Celebration


Let's play ball, Cincinnati! Get ready to rally behind the Cincinnati Reds and soak up the excitement of the Findlay Market Opening Day Parade, a cherished Cincinnati tradition that paints the town red! The streets will be buzzing with anticipation as colorful floats, marching bands, and enthusiastic fans fill downtown with an infectious energy.

The parade steps off from Findlay Market at noon and will pass by the park on Race Street as it makes its way through the city. Get pumped up for the season with inflatable baseball games, giant yard games, rows of baseball swag vendors, local food trucks, and live music from Gee Your Band Smells Terrific.


Food Truck Lineup  |  Yummy Brother's Cookies, SEA Cuisine, Jenn's Hot Tamales, and WildSide Experience.

Convenient parking is located right next to the Park.
