This community-building weekend attracts nearly 15,000 people to Tremont's Lincoln Park every September. The festival features local artists, musicians, poets, performances and crafts, as well as food stands staffed by local churches and non-profit groups.
The mission of the Festival is to celebrate the cultural and artistic diversity of Tremont and Greater Cleveland by encouraging the artistic and cultural endeavors of its visual and performing artists.
The weekend Festival is comprised of four categories or program areas which include:
- Children's-hands-on arts, historical, and educational projects
- Community-area non-profit organizations presenting material about their mission and services
- Cultural-food sales by Tremont churches, other non-profit organizations, and Tremont restaurants reflecting the ethnic diversity of the neighborhood
- Sales of paintings, sculpture, jewelry, ceramics, and photographs created by Tremont and Northeast Ohio artists.
Each year the event is presented by Merrick House, Tremont West Development Corporation and Cleveland Ward 3 Councilman Joe Cimperman.
