Waterloo Arts Fest Brings Art, Music & Food into the Street

Sat 6/29 @ noon-7PM

If you haven’t been to the Waterloo Arts District in North Collinwood lately, you need to go see what’s new. The perfect time to do so is during the 17th annual Waterloo Arts Fest, when the street’s businesses, galleries, bars and artists let it all hang out, and the street is packed with stages featuring more than 40 musicians and bands; booths from visiting artists; information tables hosted by area organizations and city depatments; interactive art-making opportunities; food trucks; and much more.

Expect to see street performers such as stiltwalkers, giant puppets and magicians; more than 80 food and arts/crafts vendors; and ten stages featuring everything from polka to punk rock. Waterloo Arts, the sponsor of the event, will have its juried exhibit on view in three galleries: it will be at Praxis Fiber Arts and Brick Ceramics in addition to its own gallery on the corner of Waterloo and E. 156th Street, at the heart of the district.

The festival is free, with the street blocked off from Calcutta to East 161st for wandering, hanging out and running into people you know. Parking is available for free at the Greater Cleveland Food Bank on the south side of the E. 152nd exit of the freeway; a free shuttle will take people to the festival three blocks away.
