Here in Mason, one of the ways we encourage an engaged, vibrant community is by offering a wide variety of events throughout the year. From world class tennis and volleyball, to educational speaking events, our community calendar is full of a diverse selection of events suitable for all walks of life.

Every summer the City of Mason hosts world-class tennis and pro beach volleyball with the Western & Southern Open and AVP tournaments. Sitting court-side, you’ll see some of the best players in the world. And Mason is able to put you in the center of the action.

As a community that values both physical and mental wellness, we also feature events that inspire and educate. This year the Mason City Council hosted Holocaust survivor Eva Kor, who came to speak to hundreds of Mason residents about her story of survival and forgiveness.

Mason also was involved in the Lindner Center of HOPE Education Day, a half-day event that gave residents the opportunity to learn more about mental health and addiction.

Throughout the year, residents have an ongoing list of annual concerts, festivals, marathons and other recreational activities to choose from. Below is a sampling of Mason events.
