We are bringing life back to Fountain Square in a safe way by celebrating the Latin music everyone loves while putting a pause on dancing until later in the summer.
Salsa on the Square, a free weekly event takes place every Thursday, from May 6 through September 30, from 7-10 pm (6 pm-9 pm in May only) on Fountain Square in Cincinnati!
The event features live local and regional Latin bands specializing in Salsa, Merengue, Cumbia, and Latin Jazz. Typically, the event features local dance instructors hosting large dance classes teaching basic and intermediate Latin dancing.
Salsa on the Square’s dance floor and dance instruction are currently on hold due to COVID19 precautions, instead, the plaza will feature extra seating, spaced 6-feet apart for patrons to enjoy the music and socialize with their small group.
Mazunte will be returning to the event in 2021 serving up tacos, tostadas, and guacamole to hungry dancers on-site. Fountain Square concessions offer full bar service including beer, wine, frozen Margaritas, and Coca-Cola products.
Music Band: Son del Caribe
*May event dates are held during 6-9p instead of 7-10p
Salsa on the Square is sponsored by P&G, La Mega Media and Fifth Third Bank.
Patrons will be required to wear masks when moving about the space, visiting the restrooms, and ordering from the bar or vendors. Patrons may remove their masks when they are seated at their table with their party.
Fountain Square is located at 520 Vine Street in downtown Cincinnati. Safe and secure parking is available at Fountain Square’s underground garage facility. Fountain Square is managed and programmed by 3CDC.
