Don't wait until next St. Paddy's Day to celebrate your Irish heritage (or your wanna-be Irish roots) when you can get your jig on at the Cleveland Irish Cultural Festival at the Cuyahoga County Fairgrounds. Complete with Irish dance groups and pipe bands, you'll also get your fill of musicians and bands direct from the Emerald Isle. How cool is it that the organization has been able to donate over $770,000 to local and national charities since it began in 1983?

This artsy pocket of Cleveland is known for its high-caliber chefs, unique dining establishments and cool little watering holes bursting with character. During the Taste of Tremont, many of these restaurants set up booths along Professor Street for passersby to purchase samples of their award-winning food. Grab a craft brew from the beer garden and enjoy live music and DJs both on the street stages and several neighborhood establishments.
During the BorderLight International Theatre + Fringe Festival, all of Cleveland will become a stage for visionary global theatre (during what’s typically down time for local theatres). The festival will activate in both performance and public spaces — from Playhouse Square to Public Square — and facilitate cool collabs between local and international theatre artists.
