Days are growing shorter, the air has a crispness that finds us pulling the sweater boxes out of storage and suddenly everything from breakfast staples to beer is infused with the flavor of pumpkin spice. Autumn in Greater Cincinnati means a cornucopia of festivals and events to celebrate. Here’s our list of fun events heralding the arrival of sweater weather.
