The Ohio Homecoming movement was created in 2010 to help establish entities and networking opportunities to help advance people and businesses through strategic partnerships in Cleveland, as well as other cities around the state of Ohio. The Ohio Homecoming Celebration was designed to present a number of community-wide events to bring awareness to positive things that the state offers, reinvigorate the citizens to aspire to greatness, and connect them with the tools to get there.
