Diversity is the theme of this year’s Tremont Arts & Cultural Festival. This weekend the festival will celebrate diversity through food and art, with a special focus on LGBTQ and Latinx artists.
Just about any type of art you can imagine will be available for sale during the free event, which runs from noon to 7 p.m. Saturday and noon to 5 p.m. Sunday in Lincoln Park. And young visitors can make their own art in the Children’s Village.
You won’t go hungry during the festival. Restaurants from the neighborhood and other areas of Greater Cleveland will sell food to eat on site, where there will also be a beer and wIne garden. In addition, the Tremont Farmers Market, held Tuesdays in Lincoln Park from May to October, will be set up Saturday and Sunday.
The festival also provides an opportunity to buy goods from fair-trade merchants and learn about local nonprofits, which will have informational tables there. Live music and dance performances are on the schedule as well.
There are several options for transportation and parking, more than there were years ago. Lincoln Park is bordered by West 14th Street, Kenilworth Avenue, West 11th Street and Starkweather Avenue. On-street parking fills up quickly, but a few nearby lots offer free parking. Paid parking and valet service are also available.
