Cincinnati International Wine Festival
2020 EVENT CANCELED
Whether you’re a wine savant or merely a casual partaker, the Cincinnati International Wine Festival is worth checking out. Most of the festivities—which include winery dinners, Grand Tastings, a charity auction and luncheon, and memorial golf tournament—take place at the 750,000-square-foot Duke Energy Convention Center in downtown Cincinnati and draw more than 200 wineries from around the world (providing more than 700 vinos to sample). Your imbibing benefits a good cause: In the festival’s history, more than $6 million in event proceeds has been donated to dozens of charities around the region.
Every summer for more than two decades, the Krohn Conservatory in Eden Park has transformed its indoor gardens into a butterfly gala, setting more than 10,000 butterflies loose in one of its greenhouses for visitors to mingle with and admire during the annual Butterfly Show. This year’s theme is "The Butterflies of Bali."
