Saturday 3-6 pm we’ll be boogying at Cincinnati’s oldest Farmer’s Market (since 1855). Lined with tons of local food, drink, and souvenirs, you’ll be able to shop beforehand, dance a few, and then grab dinner to refuel before the evening dance back at the Sanctuary.
There are parking lots around the market at $2/hr (plus a discount when shopping at the market). The closest spot to the event is the North lot. Or park anywhere near the trolly line and take the 🚊 Connector, Cincinnati’s Streetcar! It’s free and will take you to many other historic and iconic places around the city.
The dance surface is concrete, so wear comfortable outdoor shoes for dancing. This dance is free and open to the public.
Findlay Market is Ohio’s oldest surviving municipal market house. Built originally as an open-sided pavilion, the market was erected in 1852 but disputes with contractors and difficulties correcting problems with the new construction methods delayed its opening until 1855. It was designed under the direction of City Civil Engineer Alfred West Gilbert (1816-1900) using a durable but unconventional cast and wrought iron frame, a construction technology that had been little used in the United States. Findlay Market was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1972. The structure was among the first markets in the United States to use iron frame construction technology and is one of very few that have survived. Learn more
