Central Ohioans turned out in droves to celebrate the 75th anniversary of The Columbus Foundation on December 29. The Big Explore, the Foundation’s “thank you” event to the community who helped build its success, offered free COTA rides and free admission to seven of the area’s most prominent cultural attractions: Columbus Museum of Art, COSI, Franklin Park Conservatory, National Veterans Memorial and Museum, Ohio History Connection, The Pizzuti Collection, and Wexner Center for the Arts.

The Big Explore by the numbers:

  • 55,867 people attended one or more of the attractions
  • 45,500+ COTA riders that day (78% increase over that same day in 2017)
  • 9,578 scoops from Jeni’s Splendid Ice Creams
