Kamm’s Corners is the heart of Cleveland’s West Park, a dense, walkable, family neighborhood with a suburban feel. On its side streets you’ll find kids playing and riding bikes, dog walkers, and streets lined with well-kept homes.
The neighborhood’s main street, Lorain Avenue, is set off by its most iconic landmark at the corner of Rocky River Drive: the general store and post office built by Oswald Kamm in the 1880’s that still retains its historic exterior. The street is home to quirky shops such as a comic book store, a costume shop and a vintage motorcycle shop, as well as numerous Irish pubs and eateries, many with live music, that reflect the neighborhood flavor.
But Kamms Corners today is diversifying and attracting new residents and visitors with its summer Kamm’s Corners Farmers Market and festivals such as The Hooley on Kamm’s Corners™ the second Saturday in May, its big Independence Day parade, the Romanian Festival in August, and the Greek Festival over Labor Day Weekend.
