Great Parks of Hamilton County

Urban Thrive Festival

Water Station Sponsor:

Visit our urban oasis for this fourth annual free festival and celebrate all the ways our community thrives - from fresh food access to local art appreciation to the importance of nature for mental well-being.

Discover how mindfulness, music and art are connected to nature while enjoying performances by Cincinnati musicians and learning sustainability practices from a variety of community partners and local exhibitors. 

Throughout the afternoon, you can enjoy a mini hike, make s’mores, grab a bite from local food trucks, practice yoga and much more. Guests of all ages are welcome to join in the festivities!
