Come out and support Stepping Stones, one of our most inspiring local organizations! 

Stepping Stones’ signature event, Bloom, is back LIVE and completely reimagined! For 2021, it will be a wonderfully NEW experience and a great opportunity to safely celebrate and support the work of Stepping Stones. With this year’s Boots & Bourbon theme and a NEW location, Bloom will be the most interactive and entertaining night of the summer!

What we’ve loved about Bloom in years past will still be the cornerstone. A big, beautiful outdoor tented event? Check. Live music by Catalina Wine Mixer, the hottest band in Cincinnati? Check. Silent auction with head-turning items for bidding? Check. Delicious food and cocktails? Check. The exciting NEW elements will include interactive options like bourbon tastings, signature cocktails, food trucks, mechanical bull riding, axe throwing, giant Jenga, corn hole and more.

If you’ve been waiting to rejoin live events, this is the one to do. It will be outside in a large, open space with fresh air, room to dance and plenty of hand sanitizer! Dust off your favorite boots, bring your friends and join the fun! All proceeds go to the work of Stepping Stones, right here in Cincinnati. What a great opportunity to support our local community!
