Conferences in Oxford: Play

From painting pottery to lounging by the pool, Oxford has many ways for you to reward yourself after a long day.

Whether your idea of fun is to keep it moving (a game of bowling, anyone?) or taking it easy (how about an evening at the wine bar?) this is a town that caters to a good time.

You’re Fired

6 N. Beech St.

Let attendees get creative, either painting a piece of pottery or creating a piece of art for their home or office. Creative juices flowing here directly benefit your meeting!

You're Fired (6 N. Beech St.), Oxford's paint-your-own-pottery studio, will have a wide selection of pieces to choose from. They will then fire your pieces and mail them to you when they're done!

Oxford Area Trail System

Get some fresh air as you explore the Oxford Area Trail System (OATS).

We suggest starting at Black Covered Bridge (4501 Corso Rd.), strolling the 1.2 miles to Hannon Park, and enjoying a catered picnic from one of our several delis or caterers in town.

There are several trailheads for the OATS which you can find here.

Miami University Equestrian Center

4950 Oxford Trenton Rd.

Sprinkle some horseplay into your itinerary at Miami’s Equine Center, newly completed in Summer 2022. Riders of all skill levels will enjoy.

Cru Gastro Pub

105 W. Spring St.

Cater to the oenophiles of your group by partaking in a private wine tasting at local favorite, Cru (105 W. Spring St.). Their culinary team can devise tastings and pairing to suit any budget and group size.

Aquatic Center

701 Kay Ranch Dr.

Bring your swimsuit and hit the pool at Oxford's outdoor aquatic center. In addition to a large open-flume slide and basketball hoops, there's also a lazy river as well as lounge chairs and large umbrellas for those extra relaxing afternoons.

Day passes are only $5 for ages 2 - 17, $8 for ages 18 - 59 and $6 for age 60 and up. Children under the age of 2 get in for free.


Oxford's Designated Outdoor Refreshment Area (DORA) is turned on during select times of the year (in winter and again in the summer). Enjoy a refreshing adult beverage outside in the park or while you're walking down High School window-shopping.

Oxford Lanes

Enjoy some friendly competition at The Oxford Lane Bowling Alley.

Reserve a lane or two for your event attendees and play a few games while indulging in some of the Lanes' food options such as cheeseburgers, hoagies, and pretzel bites.

Butler County Donut Trail

Oxford is proud to be part of the Butler County Donut Trail. This means that if you stop at the Oxford Doughnut Shoppe (120 S. Locust St.), you're one step closer to winning your very own Donut Trail t-shirt.
