The Streetcar Will Be Great for: The World Choir Games

Posted on

In 2012, Cincinnati will host its largest convention ever–the 2012 World Choir Games.  The games, lasting for 11 days, will draw 20,000 participants from over 90 countries and hundreds of thousands of spectators.  The convention is estimated to have an economic impact on our region of $14 million.

The competition will take place at six venues in Downtown and Over-the-Rhine, all within one block from the streetcar line. This map shows how spectators can use the streetcar to easily go between the venues:

Note: Only the southern portion of the streetcar line is pictured

These games are being held for the first time in North America and represent a great chance to show Cincinnati off to visitors from around the world.

Having the streetcar will help move spectators and competitors between venues and allow visitors to explore the City and visit some of our most unique attractions like Findlay Market, the Cincinnati Zoo, and the National Underground Railroad Freedom Center.  Support Conventions and Tourism–Build the Streetcar.

    Music Hall better be available for use and not undergoing renovation. Seems odd that construction would not wait until after the Chair Games but after reading some symphony information it almost seems like construction may not be done. Have you heard different?

    The streetcar would be great for The World Choir Games. The question is, will it be up & running by then?

    While we are dealing with items within the vicinity of The Streetcar Will Be Great for: The World Choir Games CincyStreetcar Blog, Parents, teachers, preachers and politicians, have criticized and in some cases even banned electronic games. Electronic games have been blamed for poor grades, poor conduct and even poor health. If you listen long enough, electronic games are responsible for all of the problems our young people experience today. One thing is certain. Kids love them. They buy and play them in ever increasing numbers. Electronic games are here to stay.
