Get Out

Enjoy the outdoors Saturday while you enjoy a wide range of offerings at the Get Out Festival in Bay Village.

The festival on the BAYarts campus will include food, art and music, as you would expect at a festival, but it also will have health and wellness talks and demonstrations and goat yoga. Just to clarify, humans will do yoga; the baby goats are there to be a cute distraction from the exercise. Unfortunately, the goat yoga session is sold out, but you can get your fix in the goat petting area.

I attended the Get Out Festival last year and really enjoyed it. The campus is across Lake Road from Huntington Beach in the Cleveland Metroparks’ Huntington Reservation, a beautiful setting. The event was well attended with a nice selection of vendors, but it wasn’t overly crowded. There also was plenty of free parking. An early forecast says Saturday will be cloudy with a high of 72 degrees. Sounds good to me.

The festival runs from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m., leaving time before or after to enjoy the beach or the nearby Lake Erie Nature & Science Center on Wolf Road, which is open from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Admission to the festival, the beach and the nature center is free.

Also happening Saturday on the BAYarts campus is the Bay Village Trike & Bike, a fundraiser for kids ages 3-12 that supports pediatric cancer research at Cleveland Clinic Children’s Hospital. You can register here as an individual or team.



  1. Looks like great activities to check out. Thanks for sharing!

  2. This weekend is also the Cleveland Marathon! A fun event to watch and of course free!

    1. Your comment threw me for a second, Melissa. I was thinking about the entry fee for the race. But you're right. It is free to watch. I imagine the runners appreciate seeing and hearing people rooting for them along the route.
