What is Ohio Homecoming?
Ohio Homecoming is a “Movement” designed to bring cross-sections of the community together to raise the profile of the state of Ohio, reinvigorate citizens to aspire to greatness, build civic pride and promote investment in our local cities and neighborhoods. Attraction and Retention - a two pronged strategy.
The "Movement" got its start in 2010, in Cleveland Ohio, when a group of talented, energetic emerging leaders came together. These people set out to use their talent, enthusiasm, vision, and influence towards creating festival like experiences, and investment in community development projects to get the community excited, involved, and devoted to living in Cleveland.
Traditionally, the Ohio Homecoming festival has occurred during the week of Cleveland’s birthday, July 22nd. A day that for most Clevelander’s, and Buckeyes, was an ordinary day that has now re-emerged with a new sense of excitement and pride.
Over the course of 5-years, the Movement has successfully produced several multi-day festivals, A televised New Years Eve Experience, Community Day's of Service, and engaged hundreds of thousands of Ohioans.
