    Paul Brown Stadium? They have a pretty huge section in there where they rent out space for parties. The enclosed area goes all the way around the field.

    Time to start writing letters!!

    US Bank Arena is right next door to the ballpark (batting cages!) which is right next door to the front office (autographs!) which is right next door to the Reds Hall of Fame (memorabilia!). Do it there or scale it back for two years. :idea: :mad:
    Makes all the routine posts.

    Hmmmmm.......maybe the 'space' they are talking about is the lack of one in their budget to do any thing worthwhile......

    Just hope the Reds keep on winning!!!!!

    I would think that moving it to Columbus, Dayton, Lexington, Indianapolis, or Louisville would be a good PR gesture both from the standpoint of attempting to woo fans from that city and also the continuance of RedsFest (I'm assuming these cities have convention facilities sufficiently big enough).

    I would imagine there would be logistical problems moving it 50 miles away but not insurmountable.

    A completely seat-of-the-pants statement, but I don't think the US Bank Arean would be big enough. Don't know about PBS.

    Pay attention to the open sky

    Take that weekend and patronize the new Red's museum, instead. I'm probably the worst Red's fan to offer empathy in this regard, since I've never attended a RedsFest and I'm not likely to visit the Queen city in the near (or far) future.

    (Free Blazer "scrimmages" are more my style, although I did shell out a few bucks to see 'em absolutely toast the Celtics, a few months back)
    Never overlook the obvious

    Re: RedsFest Cancelled for the next 2 years...

    Do the Reds lose money on Redsfest?

    What costs do they have other than the rental space...do they have to pay the players to be there? Pay for their travel and stay? Pay their employee's?

    Is it $5.00 a day to get in? Does that cover expenses?

    The revenue it brings the city in the form of hotel stays, food & beverage and parking should get them some kind of break along the way???

    Wasn't it his idea?

    I doubt moving it to one of those cities is going to be worth the expense in taking it there. Besides, the folks from around here make up the vast majority of fans so taking it somewhere else would be a slap in the face to them.

    If US Bank Arena is big enough to have hockey games and tractor pulls, they can most certainly have Reds Fest.

    We should organize calling schedules for the locals. Each hour and half hour during business days we bombard them. :mhcky21:

    US Bank arena has a lot of seating...but their floor area is not really that big. I think it would be cramped in there.

    You have obviously never tried to drive north on 75 after a game. It doesn't thin out until Dayton.
