43rd National Kolping Convention
Cincinnati, Ohio
September 11 – 13, 2020

Dear Kolping Brothers and Sisters,

The Catholic Kolping Society of Cincinnati is excited about hosting the 43rd National Kolping Convention here in Cincinnati, the “Queen City of the West”. We have planned lots of activities for everyone and we are looking forward to getting to know one another while participating in these activities throughout the weekend.

We have engaged the Embassy Suites Hotel Cincinnati-RiverCenter, 10 East Rivercenter Blvd., Covington, KY 41011, to be our hotel for our meetings and our overnight guests. Please click on this link for hotel information and to make your room reservations. Deadline for making hotel reservations is August 15, 2020.

On Day One, September 11th, we will have a “Meet and Greet” reception in the evening at the Embassy Suites Hotel with light snacks and drinks. This reception will convene to our Hospitality Suite for those who would like to continue the festivities.

On Day Two, September 12th, we will begin the day with a Mass at the hotel, and the convention delegates will start their all-day meeting to discuss Kolping business, while the non-delegates will be taken to the Newport Aquarium, followed by a lunch at a brewery in the Over-the-Rhine district, and then a city bus tour. In the evening, we will have our Banquet/Awards Ceremony at the Kolping Center at 10235 Mill Road, Cincinnati, OH 45231. Entertainment will be provided by the Sound Body Jazz Orchestra, so bring your dancing shoes!

On Day Three, September 13th, we will again begin the day with a Mass at the Mother of God Church in Covington, Kentucky, where we will all process with our Kolping flags. After the Mass, we will go to BB Riverboats in Newport, Kentucky, where we will board for our leisurely riverboat lunch cruise – just cruising down the Ohio River. There will be plenty of time after the lunch cruise to spend some time exploring the city and seeing the sights. We will provide lots of information in your goody bags to help you choose something that catches your eye.

To register for your delegate and non-delegate packages, please click on this link. Deadline for registering is July 11, 2020.

We look forward to seeing all of our Kolping Brothers and Sisters here in Cincinnati, getting to know you better, sharing best practices, accomplishing great things at our meeting, showing off the Greater Cincinnati area, enjoying the camaraderie, and of course, having fun!
