ArchiNATI has been Cincinnati’s premier architectural festival since 2011.

This year’s festival theme is “Citizen Space,” highlighting the city’s publicly owned buildings and land. The fest kicks off with the Place from Space exhibition and event Friday night, showcasing the submissions for a design competition aimed at turning vacant spaces in Over-the-Rhine, Walnut Hills and Price Hill into community places.

The exhibition will feature voting, refreshments and music.

On Saturday, there will be a Queen City bike tour to experience the city’s significant architecture and public art works by bike and a Brew House facelift charette to figure out a new look for this Walnut Hills landmark.

And there will be more walks, tours and fantastic events through Oct. 13. Ticket prices, times and venues vary. Find details at
