Summer Festivals: Get Ready for the 2019 Festival Season


It’s the final year for the Hessler Street Fair June 1-2

Soon Cleveland will be awash with outdoor festivals, al fresco music series, farmers markets and flea market (and the return of the beloved Asiatown Night Markets, which went on hiatus last year!) and special events of all kinds.

We’re not even going to try to put together a listing of all the recurring weekly or monthly events — there are just too many of them. But as usual, we’re sharing all the special events and festivals we know about. The five months from late April to early October are jam-packed so start your planning now!
