Things To Do

Cincinnati Bengals vs Green Bay Packers Preseason Game

1 Paycor Stadium, Cincinnati, OH 45202

The odds that Catherine's team (Bengals) and Patrick's team (Packers) would play the weekend of their wedding in Cincinnati were close to none, but here we are with this incredible scheduling! Although it is a preseason game, Paycor Stadium and a home game with the Cincinnati Bengals are not to be missed. The link to buy tickets is below. You might even catch a glimpse of the wedding party at the rehearsal dinner, where our families will be together on a riverboat passing by the game!

For tennis fans, The Western & Southern Open begins the day after our wedding just north of Cincinnati in Mason, Ohio. This event is the oldest professional tennis tournament in the United States played in the city of its origin, and is a fantastic way to get up close and see the world’s best tennis players. The facility is top of the line and the event is a family favorite and family friendly; Catherine grew up attending matches and working at the open every summer. This is a great reason to extend your trip in Cincinnati! See website for ticket information and event details:
