Family Art Picnics come to Northside

WHAT: Happen Inc. Family Art Picnics WHEN: Thursdays in July (7/10, 7/17, 7/24, and 7/31) 5pm-7pm (Food service begins at 5:45pm) WHERE: Fergus Park, 4126 Fergus St.


This Summer, dozens of teen volunteers from around the region have come to Greater Cincinnati to work with a number of local organizations including Happen, Inc. The teens spend their time with Happen working at our Northside gardens and on various alley initiatives all culminating in Happen’s Family Art Picnic. Together with our partners from North Church, Youth Works and Whiz Kids, Happen brings this one-of-a-kind family event to Children’s Park at the corner of Chase and Fergus Ave celebrating art, the community and our teen volunteers from Youth Works. Happen’s Family Art Picnic features three tents with kid friendly art activities, free food from the grill and a special “Teen Hall” tent where teens can gather with community members to listen, learn and organize. Happen’s Family Art Picnic is a great place to meet neighbors, talk to local teens and get to know the officers from District 5 who help look after our community.

We had a great response to our first picnic on June 12 with over 150 guests attending and sharing in a great, free community event. We hope you can join us for an upcoming Happen’s Family Art Picnic.
