FOUND, which is returning for a second year, features experiential events that celebrate the history of Cincinnati (which was founded in December 1788 and originally called Losantiville), highlight the unique characteristics of each district in the urban core – from The Banks to the Central Business District to Over-the-Rhine and Findlay Market – and help support the wide variety of eclectic small businesses and entrepreneurs that add vibrancy throughout our center city. Visit for a digital map of every holiday experience in the city, as well as additional information on the FOUND pillar events:

❄️ Join in on the 4-week-long city-wide scavenger hunt, Finding Losantiville . Sign up to join the hunt, which was designed by a team of expert game creators (and win prizes each week). One winner will even win a grand prize of $2,000!

❄️ Founders Forest will illuminate Imagination Alley with 50 lit trees starting at 7 p.m. every night through the end of the year.

❄️ On your walk up Vine Street, take in the Windows of Wonder – 40 storefronts (all included on a digital map ) that have been transformed into a holiday wonderland in a nod to the old Shillito's windows, which will also light up on Friday.

The month-long holiday celebration is a partnership between 3CDC , AGAR , The Haile Foundation , P&G , the OTR Chamber of Commerce (👋), Findlay Market , The Banks , Make-A-Wish Foundation and more.
