There is plenty to celebrate when it comes to Pride Month. And we’ve got something for everyone this year. Drink, play or stay and give back to our community while you do it with a portion of proceeds from each event benefitting Transform Cincy, a local nonprofit committed to providing transgender youth a “free closet” to exchange their old wardrobe for a new one.
PARTY WITH US
21c PRIDE Block Party
Wear your rainbow colors proud and party with us Saturday, June 26th from 4-8pm. We’re teaming up with our neighbors at Nicholson’s to transform Gano Alley this Pride Month. Bring the whole family from 4-6pm and enjoy family-friendly activities like sidewalk chalk, bubbles, face painting and kid slushies. Thirsty? Sip on craft beer and White Claw floats. Be sure to come hungry – Chef Vanessa and the team at Metropole will be grilling burgers, brats and hot dogs. Wear your best dancing shoes – we’ll have a local DJ (TBA soon!) spinning beats in the alley. Plus! Enter for a chance to win raffle prizes like a one night stay at 21c Cincinnati or bites and cocktails on the Cocktail Terrace.* After the party is over, we’ll still be serving up specials in Metropole and Cocktail Terrace – including pick-your-poison adult slushies and our featured Pride cocktail, Red Leather, Yellow Leather – so stick around!
Event is free to attend. Sales are cash only. A portion of proceeds from this event will benefit Transform Cincy. Masks encouraged. Stations for hand sanitizer and extra masks will be available.
*Winners for raffles will be announced Monday following event.
Let us know you’re coming!
