I decided to date myself and I went downtown to Fountain square when they were having a wine tasting. I listened to great music, tasted wine, and had some good food. Fountain Square always has something going on and is family friendly. I am always watching for the next event on the square.

Fountain Square seems to be the center of what is happening in downtown Cincinnati. There is a festival of one type or another scheduled on any given weekend. Also for your convenience there is a parking garage immediately below the park.

This is just a fountain square with a lovely old bronze and granite working fountain, and a broad plaza. On a pretty day it is perfect place to bring your lunch.

The Fountain in Fountain Square is awesome. Beautiful in the day and evening. We've been to 3 weekend festivals in the past 3 weeks. We relocated her temporarily for a year and can't believe what a great place. Cincinnati we have to say is a fantastic city is a hidden gem! Great restaurants, stadiums, bars, shopping, museums.

I visited Fountain Square a few times during our trip. It is a bustling area with a few good restaurants nearby. There was a little market going on one day, which was interesting and grew a crowd.

This is a very relaxing place right in the heart of downtown. Tables and chairs are available and food and drink venues on the outside. Any big events are telecast on the Jumbotron across the street and a lot of concerts. Worth stopping by when in town.

This is a great place to watch an outdoor game or people watch. Sadly, this is very popular for homeless people and there is little security

Always the third weekend in September. There is always plenty of choices for food, beer and wine. They usually have several vendors with freebies and car dealerships showcasing cars. Lots of fun!

I have visited Fountain Square several times and always enjoy going there for a quick bite to eat or for entertainment that is often found in the park. There are several spots for food, a brewery and Graeters Ice Cream!

We tried to enjoy a beautiful afternoon at Fountain Square but were constantly accosted by panhandlers. We decided to leave to avoid further harassment.
