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:
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.
