On Saturday December 9th from noon – 11pm, expect to see plenty of Party-going, bar-hopping Cincinnatians dressed up for Cincinnati’s 16th annual SantaCon event. This annual event spreads Holiday cheer across the tri-state as Santa’s parade around town visiting some of their favorite gathering places. Participating partners throughout OTR, CBD, Mt. Adams, Newport, and Covington will welcome all participants with special offers throughout the day and evening. Registrants must be 21 yrs.+ and can register at https://csnevents.regfox.com/santacon-2023
Cincinnati SantaCon will see thousands of Santa’s roaming the streets of Cincinnati having an absolute blast, all in the name of charity. SantaCon goers purchase wristbands that give them access to deals and promotional activities, with proceeds benefitting the Ohio Chapter of The Cure Starts Now. This event features collaboration between a locally founded Cincinnati charity with an international impact, and a Cincinnati-based event that has been thriving for over 15 years.
Brooke Desserich, Executive Director of The Cure Starts Now says, “We are thrilled by the support of the Cincinnati community. Cincinnati shows up, dresses up, and has so much fun while supporting pediatric brain cancer research. Our partnership with Cincinnati SantaCon is an amazing example of how two Cincinnati-based organizations can make a difference when they work together. The families of the children who will benefit from research funded by Cincinnati SantaCon are eternally grateful to the SantaCon participants, organizers, and vendors.”
Cincinnati SantaCon has been a partnership with the community uniting behind having fun while supporting children battling brain cancer. The wristband proceeds will be used to fund pediatric brain cancer research grants at hospitals in Cincinnati and around the world. Participants can pick up their wristbands at The Hard Rock Casino downtown on December 9. Donations to The Cure Starts Now can be made at donate2csn.org
