Lakewood Arts Festival

Lakewood Arts Festival

For forty years, the Lakewood Arts Festival has brought local and national artists to the streets of Lakewood, Ohio the first weekend in August. The Lakewood Downtown Arts Festival, Inc. is a nonprofit organization that administers the show with the help of a team of hard-working volunteers and the cooperation of the city of Lakewood, Ohio. The festival supports itself with money raised by entry fees, donations from community merchants, sponsorship funds and other efforts.

Besides supporting the festival, money earned or donated goes towards a scholarship for a local high school graduate, a Lakewood resident, pursuing a degree in fine arts, and toward grants awarded to local organizations presenting art programs for children and seniors in Lakewood. This year grants were awarded to Lakewood High School Barnstormers and the Photography Club, H2O (Help to Others) benefitting Lakewood middle-school students), Lakewood Catholic Academy arts programs, The Barton Center Senior arts activities, and The Beck Center for the Arts programs.

On average, one hundred and sixty-five artists are selected to exhibit. Awards, funded through the help of local businesses and community organizations, are presented to artists in categories of Best of Show, Second, Third Place, Best Creative Presentation and Best New Artist.

Every year a line-up of fine musical entertainment is scheduled throughout the day. A list of times for entertainment is available at the Information Booth and on the Entertainment page. A limited edition lithograph is available for a donation at the information booth as well. Every year they have a fresh new design done by a local artist. The sale of these prints provides funds to support our scholarship fund.

Each month, the Cleveland Flea welcomes 170+ vendors and 10,000 shoppers to our Tyler Village home, in Cleveland's AsiaTown neighborhood. 

Vintage and salvage dealers set up shop next to jewelers, fine artists and bakers, furniture crafters and charcuterie makers. The Flea is at once a foodie feast and community gathering place, a weekend excursion in the city and a movement to back a brilliant creative class.

Community Festival (ComFest) 2018
Jun

Community Festival (ComFest) 2018

How much does it cost to get into ComFest?

The Community Festival is free to attend! There are no tickets or cover charges.

Where is ComFest? How do I get there? Where do I park?

The festival is held in Goodale Park, near downtown Columbus, Ohio.

Because of the traffic caused by our event, and to help the environment, we highly recommend riding a bicycle and using our $1 bicycle valet, or riding the COTA bus which will be running late on Friday and Saturday.

If you must drive, you should park in the Arena District, as most street parking in the neighborhood requires a residential parking permit; cars parked illegally in the neighborhood will be towed.

For more info, visit our Getting to ComFest page.

When are my volunteer shifts?

If you have already signed up and need a list of your shifts, just send an email to myshifts@comfest.com, and our shift robot will reply with shift details and important info.

How do I volunteer?

Fill out your volunteer application, where you can pick jobs and shifts that suit your unique talents. Applications are usually available by March.

Once the festival has started, visit the ComFest Volunteer Booth to sign up for a shift on-site.

What’s the minimum age to attend?

ComFest is open to all ages, however for their own safety, we ask that children be accompanied by a parent or guardian. Parents can get a wristband at KiDSART or Safety Base Station and write a parents cell number on it so we can quickly reunite lost kids with parents.

Who is performing? What is there to do at ComFest?

Workshops, speakers, dancers, music, arts & crafts, food and vendors—there is so much to do at ComFest. Our performance schedule is available at: comfest.com/stages. Even more event information is available in our annual Program Guide.

Can I bring alcoholic beverages from home?

NO! Carry-in alcohol is illegal in city parks. Police officers will be present at the event to enforce all laws. ComFest will have multiple Beer and Wine booths on Park Street and Goodale Street. Avoid a ticket (or worse) by buying your alcoholic beverages at the festival. Please cooperate with our NO BYOB volunteers and remove all alcohol from the premises when asked.

For more information, please visit our No BYOB page.

Are coolers allowed at ComFest?

We are asking that you please leave your coolers at home. We also ask that you do not leave backpacks unattended. Stay with your stuff and tag those bags with your name and cell number. If you bring something into the park, please take it back home with you. Otherwise, make sure to clean up after yourself, and use one of the recycling areas located throughout the event.

For more information, please visit our No BYOB page.

How can I have a booth or sell items at ComFest?

Fill-out and send us an application – they are available mid-January each year.

Creekside Blues & Jazz Festival

  • 123 Mill Street Gahanna, OH, 43230 United States (map)
  • Google Calendar ICS

 

Known as the showcase for the “best blues and jazz music in Ohio,” the Creekside Blues & Jazz Festival (“CBJF”) is a premier family event destination.  First held in 1999, the CBJF began as a half-day event to commemorate the opening of Gahanna’s Creekside Park and the revitalization of the downtown Gahanna area.  Today, the Festival is a three-day cultural event that features more than 90 hours of world-class music on five stages, mouth-watering cuisine, regional artisans, amusement rides, family activities and more.  Each June, more than 35,000 people from across Ohio and the U.S. travel to Gahanna to experience a weekend of first class music, food, community, and fun.

One of the greatest allures of the CBJF is its unique setting.  Located along the picturesque banks of Creekside Park and in the heart of Gahanna’s vibrant Creekside District (117 Mill St. in Gahanna OH 43230), the CBJF has the feel of a small-town festival yet offers attendees unrivaled amenities.  Whether it’s listening to the hottest bands while enjoying a relaxing paddleboat ride down the creek, taking a break from the crowd and enjoying a delicious dinner at one of the several restaurants located within the festival grounds, participating in tasting experiences, or making crafts with the kids in the Family Fun Zone, the CBJF has something fun for everyone.

Programmed and presented by the Gahanna Convention & Visitors Bureau, a 501(c)(6) not-for-profit destination marketing organization, the CBJF would not be possible without the help of our generous festival partners, who provide support for the event through financial sponsorships as well as through their sharing of valuable volunteer hours.  Thanks to their partnership and patronage, the CBJF has become a time-honored tradition of music excellence, family fun and treasured memories for thousands.

Cleveland FLEA

Part urban treasure hunt. Part culinary adventure. Part maker center.

The Cleveland Flea is a small business incubator that draws thousands of Northeast Ohioans to lesser-known neighborhoods in the city to shop curated vintage, culinary all-stars and the most talented makers in the region. But it's always been more than just a market.

Each month, the Cleveland Flea welcomes 170+ vendors and 10,000 shoppers to our Tyler Village home, in Cleveland's AsiaTown neighborhood. 

Vintage and salvage dealers set up shop next to jewelers, fine artists and bakers, furniture crafters and charcuterie makers. The Flea is at once a foodie feast and community gathering place, a weekend excursion in the city and a movement to back a brilliant creative class.

Downtown Pittsburgh has been home to the Festival since 1960. The Festival footprint is comprised of three main locations, which span about one mile:

  • Point State Park: Known around the world for its iconic fountain at the confluence of Pittsburgh’s famed three rivers – the Allegheny, Ohio, and Monongahela – Point State Park is a gorgeous and must-see destination even before it becomes home to some of the Festival’s major attractions each June.
  • Cultural District: A project of the Pittsburgh Cultural Trust, non-profit producer of the Dollar Bank Three Rivers Arts Festival, the Cultural District is home to Pittsburgh’s dynamic art and entertainment scene and serves as a national model for urban redevelopment through the arts with world-class theaters, cutting-edge art galleries, restaurants galore, and more.
  • Gateway Center: Picturesque and nestled between Point State Park and the 14-block Cultural District, Gateway Center features plazas with a sparkling fountain, towering trees, and breezy walkways amid four prominent office buildings in addition to being a gathering point for the Festival’s Artist Market, Second Stage, and more.

This may be the largest and most-celebrated free arts festival in the country. Nearly 1,000 artists are represented in hundreds of performances and attractions. No tickets are required. It’s really free.
