Citirama declared 'special event'

Because this year's Citirama will feature special vendors – including the sale of beer and wine – Cincinnati City Council has voted to declare it a special event.

Special event status allows the City and event partner Home Builders Association of Greater Cincinnati to set specific rules for the ninth annual home show, to be held from June 3-13 at Rockford Woods in Northside. Hassman Court, which provides access to the seven new single-family homes, will be blocked and gated starting at 8 a.m. on May 26.

Builders include Greystone Homes, John Hueber Homes, Maple Street Homes, Maronda Homes, M/I Homes, Perry Bush Building Group, and Potterhill Homes. Pricing starts at $205,000.

At buildout, the second phase of Rockford Woods will include 36 new homes.

Past Citirama events have been held at Betts-Longworth and St. Ann's Common I and II in the West End, Brodbeck Park and Woodcrest Park in Westwood, Spencer Hill in Mount Lookout, and the Villages of Daybreak in Bond Hill.
