Reason to Celebrate
The Cincinnati Pops, Cincinnati Opera, Cincinnati Ballet, Cincinnati May Festival come together once again at Greenacres to Celebrate! The Celebration Concert started as a 100th birthday celebration for Mrs. Louise Dieterle Nippert, and continues as a celebration of her memory, legacy, and continued support of the Cincinnati arts scene. The performance will take place in the Grand Tent at the Greenacres Arts Center and will last for approximately 1 hour.
There are three types of tickets for this year’s celebration concert. We will have VIP tickets, Grand Tent General Admission, and Tented Lawn General Admission.
VIP TICKETS – $100
This new opportunity is one you don’t want to miss! With the purchase of a VIP ticket you get an exclusive cocktail hour in the gorgeous gardens of the Greenacres Arts Center from 5pm-6pm. During this hour you can enjoy passed appetizers, open bar, early access to seat selection, and special appearances by John Morris Russell and others during your cocktail hour. Once the VIP cocktail hour ends, General Admission ticket holders will join you in the gardens for another hour of mingling and fun. The bars will then switch to cash bar and passed appetizers will no longer be offered after 6pm. If you also purchased pre-ordered meals and snacks, pickup will be available at any time during the VIP or General Admission cocktail hours.
