May 2023 Guide to Family-Friendly Events


Spring has sprung! May brings all sorts of joy and renewal to our lives. May flowers, Mother’s Day celebrations, May the 4th for all us Star Wars-loving fans, 513 Day, getting outside, (school ending – eek! Get those Summer Camps registered for ASAP!!!) and so much more comes with this month. We’ve got our top picks for the May 2023 edition of our guide to family-friendly events around Greater Cincinnati & NKY.


Bloom is an event for new and expecting moms, foster moms, and adoptive moms (recommended for any mom up to toddler age!), and other parents in the Greater Dayton, Cincinnati, & Northern Kentucky areas. Everyone is welcome! There will be great giveaways that any mom/dad/grandparent will want to get in on. Bloom is a hybrid event this year! We have our annual dual-city virtual event with our Sister Site in Greater Dayton… and, our in-person Cincinnati Bloom Expo is back!!!

Next articleDear Co-Parent, I See You
I was born in New York and lived in several states before settling down in my favorite city of all time - Cincinnati! I have an interracial family that consists of my amazing and talented husband (Derek) and our beautiful, silly daughter (Adilyn {2009}). I work full-time in Human Resources in addition to owning the Cincinnati, Dayton, & Louisville Mom Collectives, write and illustrate children's books (search "Courtney Jayne Snow" on Amazon), love to volunteer, and am a registered and certified nutritional consultant (RNC/CNC). I still do my best to be the best mom and wife I can be! I love art museums, the theatre, the zoo, reading, and Cincinnati parks. I'm a foodie and always love trying new places to eat. I hope other moms find either enlightenment or humor from my posts!
