News & Events



Keep Cincinnati Beautiful has been a long-standing partner of the City of Cincinnati and its 52 neighborhoods for almost 40 years. We've been through a little bit of everything, and weathered some crazy storms, all to continue serving the community we love so much. Leading up to the big 4-0, we need your help to make our 40th year the BEST ONE YET!

Grab a friend and join us for our FIRST EVER fundraiser to help us get over the hill with a big, old fashioned (indoor) block party! All proceeds go to support KCB's mission to create safer, cleaner spaces and a higher quality of life for all Cincinnatians. KCB's education, revitalization and environmental initiatives build community and foster pride in the places where we live, work, and play.

Tickets on-sale NOW through November 13th! Tickets will also be available at the door for $50 per person.
