City of Worthington

Founded in 1803, Worthington was one of the Midwest’s first planned communities, blending commerce, residential life, education, arts and faith. Its arts community includes several theater, choral, and visual arts groups, and the Worthington Art Festival is ranked as one of the top 200 arts festivals in the country.

Worthington Schools

Worthington City Schools shine in a state with an education system that ranks seventh in the nation according to Education Week’s “2008 Quality Counts Report.”
From the highly educated teachers and the conscientious support staff, to the hardworking administrators and forward-thinking school board members, Worthington students receive top-notch support throughout their entire K-12 careers.

Worthington Area Chamber of Commerce

The Worthington Area Chamber of Commerce promotes and supports a vibrant environment for the business community. The Chamber builds strong member relationships through productive networking, meaningful partnerships, relevant and supportive resources, and effective use of technology.

Ohio Arts Council

The Ohio Arts Council was created in 1965 to “foster and encourage the development of the arts and assist the preservation of Ohio’s cultural heritage.”

Convention and Visitors Bureau of Worthington

Whether you are visiting Worthington on your own, with a small group or part of a larger convention, the Convention and Visitors Bureau provides numerous opportunities to explore the old and new. Exciting events or hands-on experiences afford the opportunity to spend time with friends, exploring the many unique and charming shops and talking with local merchants. Great restaurants and small town charm have garnered votes for Worthington to rank as one of the top destinations in Central Ohio.

Worthington Libraries

Worthington Libraries is one of the busiest library systems in Ohio, ranked only behind the eight metropolitan libraries in terms of use. They provide a wide array of high-quality materials, services and programs for residents of the Worthington School District and maintain the pioneering spirit of the library’s founders as they continually look for new and better ways to meet the changing needs of patrons.
