We look forward to another wonderful Feast of Tabernacles in Cincinnati, Ohio. Many who attend here have said that the best feature of this site is the relaxing inclusiveness. Many of our older members enjoy the convenience of having lodging in the same building as services, with meals available there as well—and families find that very beneficial as well. Our location makes Cincinnati a great place for extended families to meet and celebrate the festival together. It is a full site, with a range of activities, and we welcome all who might attend—young and old!

The Cincinnati region is part of a beautiful landscape, especially when fall foliage is on the trees. There are a variety of historical and cultural sites, as well as many nearby entertainment attractions—along with a wide variety of good restaurants.

Just across the river is the well-known Newport Aquarium. The Cincinnati Music Hall and the Aronoff Center regularly present concerts and operas, while on the weekend, some families like to attend a Cincinnati Bengals game or the Kings Island amusement park. The Taft Art Museum has an excellent collection and is free. The Cincinnati Museum Center includes three world-class museums—natural history, Cincinnati history and a children’s museum. The Creation Museum is a 40-minute drive southwest in Petersburg, Kentucky. An hour’s drive north of Cincinnati is the National Air Force Museum in Dayton, which is home to the largest and most extensive collection of U.S. Air Force history in the country.

The Holiday Inn Eastgate will host the Feast and is offering rooms for $81 per night, including a full breakfast for two people. It is important to reserve rooms early because the hotel usually fills up. A number of restaurants and a mall are within walking distance. The spacious hotel lobby provides a comfortable place where brethren gather to fellowship anytime throughout the Feast. You are encouraged to stay there if your budget allows, because the Holiday Inn offers the meeting space for an exceptional bargain to the Church. No other discounted housing is being offered, so if you need other options, you may do your own search and reserve accommodations that suit you.
