Now in its 11th year, the Waterloo Arts Fest continues to grow into one of Cleveland’s most eclectic and vibrant street festivals with a strong emphasis on art and music. The Fest takes place on Waterloo Road in the Waterloo Arts District which is located on Cleveland’s east side. Last year’s Fest drew over 5,000 attendees. Music, performance art, street art, art vendors, community organizations and galleries come together to showcase Cleveland’s creative talent.
Arts Collinwood is a non-profit organization with an art gallery, community arts center, studio spaces, and café. It is the cornerstone of the Waterloo Arts and Entertainment District which is home to an increasingly diverse arts community. Arts Collinwood’s premier event is the Waterloo Arts Fest, a street-wide festival along the main corridor of the Waterloo Arts and Entertainment District. The 11th Annual Waterloo Fest will take place on Saturday, June 29, 2013 and will feature unique art and music experiences, an children’s art area, art and food vendors, and new to the Fest this year, the Arts Alive program which encourages attendees to experience the cultural vibrancy of the region through interactive demonstrations and activities provided by regional arts organizations.
