Flats East Bank and Howard Alan Events will host Cleveland’s second annual Flats Festival of the Arts this August! Exciting new additions to the festival will include the event being free of charge to the public and the collaboration with Downtown Cleveland Alliance’s SPARX City Hop 2017. We feel that by changes in the layout, major publicity with several non-profits and shortening the days and hours, we will return with a strong event! Loud music has also been eliminated and we will be reducing the amount of exhibitors but keeping up the quality level. Artist parking will be close by and convenient.
The Flats East Bank is more than Cleveland’s best place to eat, drink, play and live. It’s flat out electric. Rising at the union of the Cuyahoga River and beautiful Lake Erie, the Flats East Bank is a lifestyle all its own, with cutting edge waterfront living and a combination of dining and entertainment options you won’t find anywhere else.
Flats Festival of the Arts will support Cleveland School of the Arts, a specialty arts school in the Cleveland Metropolitan School District for students grades 9-12, and H.E.L.P., a nonprofit organization devoted to developing a pathway for children living in rural regions of Africa. H.E.L.P will also kick off the event festivities with Bites, Booze, and Boogie their annual fundraiser event on Friday, August 18.
Bites, Booze & Boogie is the offical kick-off party for Flats Festival of the Arts. Their event will be August 18, 2017 from 6:30 p.m. to 12 a.m. For more information about the event visit Bites, Booze & Boogie. Artists are encouraged to exhibit on Friday night from 6PM to 8PM for a great opportunity to give patrons a preview of the event.
