Frequently Asked Questions

I want to hold an event on Fountain Square. What do I do?

Start by going to Host an Event for basic information, rules, and forms. Most of the information you need is in the rules or in the Fountain Square Event Permit Application itself.

How do I submit video content for the Fountain Square LED video board?

Start by reading the Content Guidelines and Technical Requirements on the Use of the Fifth Third Bank LED Video Board. Once you have read the the guidelines and requirements, we recommend filling out the LED Board inquiry form. Each piece of content should be accompanied by a Submission Form (also on the page above) so we know what it is, who it’s from, and the dates you are requesting it to be run.

I represent a band or performing artist who would like to perform at one of the music events on Fountain Square. What do I do?

Interested in performing at Fountain Square or Washington Park? 3CDC is always looking for great bands to perform at both civic spaces from April to October each year. Submit your band once to our CloudPressKit account to be considered for any of 3CDC’s 2016 music events at either space.

Submissions are accepted from January – September each year.

No calls please.

Please note: Fountain Square Management Group LLC is a private, not-for-profit organization that raises private funds to produce events on Fountain Square. There is no guarantee that submitting for consideration will garner a booking. Fountain Square is a public space and any individual or group may take out a permit to produce an event on an available date. For more information, go to Host an Event.

How do I donate my tree to Fountain Square for the holidays?

Fountain Square Management professionally sources the holiday tree for the Square; however, picturesque trees that are over 65 feet tall (5 to 6 stories) will be considered. Please send a photo of the tree for consideration to TalkToUs@myfountainsquare.com. Make sure the photo includes a point of reference so tree height can be determined.
