Summer is in full-swing. It’s hotter than you-know-what out there, so make sure you stay hydrated and keep that sunblock fully applied!
Now that the PSA is over, load up on food and booze while you have the time of your life at the hottest parties The Land has to offer in July.
The 2022 Cleveland Tall Ships Festival is your ticket to experiencing the adventure and romance of Cleveland’s maritime history when it sails into port near FirstEnergy Stadium on Downtown Cleveland’s Lakefront July 7-10. Families visiting Cleveland from all over the country will have the opportunity to:
- Board and tour eight tall ships, replicas and restorations from the United States, Canada and Spain
- Engage in educational and sail training programs with the crew and ship captains
- Enjoy a maritime festival surrounding the ships on North Coast Harbor, complete with delicious food, refreshing craft beer, live music, street performers, reenactments and more
To say this three-day outdoor art festival is big would be an understatement. The Cain Park Arts Festival features hundreds of artists and crafters at this Cleveland Heights park. Just over half of the entries represent two-dimensional art like painting, watercolors, hand-pulled prints and photography, while the rest include crafts in categories like jewelry, ceramics, glass, sculpture, wood and more. To complete the festival experience, enjoy live music from talented local performers and delicious food from food trucks and other local vendors.

Lakewood is one of Cleveland’s most vibrant suburbs, so it’s no wonder they throw a great block party. Local culinary institution Melt Bar and Grilled sponsors the hottest street party of the summer for over ten years running - Lakewood Summer Meltdown. A massive street party with over 10,000 of your newest friends, the urban-cool town comes alive with 40+ street vendors, games, activities, an evening 5K race, great food and, of course, a beer garden
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.
