Experience what's unmistakably Cincinnati

All-Star Summer

2015 Community Organizing Committee

The Community Organizing Committee (COC) is an all-volunteer committee formed in partnership with the Cincinnati Reds and the Cincinnati USA Convention & Visitors Bureau.  The COC is responsible for creating unique and exciting experiences for visitors and residents within the Greater Cincinnati area.  The committee is made up of more than 200 professionals and volunteers working to execute more than thirty initiatives spanning community events, entertainment, communications, city décor, hospitality, volunteer management, transportation, community engagement and business community engagement.  Specially, the COC’s goals are to:

  • Create advance excitement of the 86th Major League Baseball All-Star Game.
  • Create All-Star moments for area residents.
  • Ensure guests leave with a lasting impression of our region.
  • Ensure the city core is activated to its fullest during the five-day All-Star Week period.
