In this segment I highlight some fun events happening in Cleveland over the next several weeks.
September 6th: MIX at Cleveland Museum of Art. I love the monthly MIX events at CMA - excellent people watching, an excellent dose of art and culture, and drinks!
September 7th: 4th Annual Cleveland Drag Showcase The art of drag comes in many forms and will leave you in awe with each entertainer’s style and performance. This year’s headliner is Geneva Convention from Knoxville, Tennessee. She will be joining many local drag kings, queens and in-betweens at one of the most all-inclusive and safe annual LGBTQ events in Cleveland.
September 9th: Taste of the Browns. Enjoy delicious food and mingle with the Cleveland Browns players while benefiting the Greater Cleveland Food Bank. This is a ticketed event, and tickets are available here.
September 14th: 10th Annual India Festival USA. I am so excited for this event, which is largest Indian cultural festival in Ohio!
September 14th: Rocky River Fall Arts Festival This is always a great shopping festival with a group of fabulous vendors as well as the stores on Old Detroit Road.
September 14th- 15th: Chalk Festival 2019. This family friendly event mixes professional artists with ordinary people and you can even create your very own chalk art!
September 20th: F*Show XI If you’re in the market for contemporary furniture or what to source some great talent, this is the furniture show for you. I’ve been to this event several times in it’s history and the work is truly beautiful.
September 21st: CAN celebrates Women in the Arts. This is a ticketed event in super cool venue, supporting women in the arts, specifically Jennifer Coleman, the George Gund Foundation Senior Program Officer for the Arts and Kristen Cliffel, artist and recipient of the Cleveland Arts Prize Mid-Career Prize in Visual Art.
September 25th: Women’s Leadership Conference of Northeast Ohio I attended this event last year and it was an inspiring, educational day! This year’s event has an impressive, diverse set of speakers - if you have the time, I highly recommend attending.
September 27th: Night Market is back! This festival is always a blast, and features so much good food!
September 28th: Tremont Arts & Cultural Festival. It’s been several years since I’ve been to this event, mainly because there are so many competing arts festivals that feature similar artists. But I remember this having a really solid lineup of artists and vendors, so I’m going to try and check it out this year. If you’re not familiar with Tremont, this is a must-do, and then hang out after and walk around to check out some of the neighborhood restaurants and bars.
September 29th: Ohio City Street Festival This is another fun neighborhood festival featuring neighborhood restaurants, games for kids, ice-cream, and general end of summer fun!
I will update this list each week. ENJOY!
