The Queen City's favorite monthly street fair had been placed on a hiatus this year due to the coronavirus pandemic. 

But organizers behind Second Sunday on Main have shifted the premise of event for 2020 to not only welcome more of the community to participate, but also offer a socially distant way of supporting and celebrating the hardworking and talented folks in the neighborhood. 

Presented by the OTR Chamber of Commerce, Second Sunday OTR will welcome Over-the-Rhine storefronts, pop-ups and musicians to head to the streets and set up their shops outside, offering a safe and walkable street fair. 

"Each OTR storefront will participate by activating on the sidewalk in front of their store or inviting a vendor to do so," SSOM's website reads. "We are letting the OTR businesses invite their own vendor partners and are encouraging minority owned pop-up shops. We will also be working with MORTAR and other groups to pair businesses with a compatible vendor partners."

This month's event will take place noon-5 p.m. Sept. 13 and will span Vine, Main and Pendleton streets and Elm and Race streets surrounding Findlay Market. 

The slated programming includes:

  • Cincinnati Music Accelerator Buskers: noon-2 p.m. and 3-5 p.m. throughout OTR
  • Sidewalk Salon with artist Gee Horton: noon-5 p.m. at Lost & Found, 22 E. 14th St.
  • ELEMENTZ @ GOODS: noon-5 p.m. at GOODS, 1317 Main St.
  • Music Hall Market and Balcony Performances: noon-5 p.m. at Music Hall, 1241 Elm St.
  • Kroger Sampling Trailer: noon-5 p.m. at the 12th and Vine street parking lot
  • "Vend the Haus" @ Felsenhaus Parking Lot: noon-5 p.m. at Felsenhaus, 242 W. McMicken Ave.
