The 17th Annual Tremont Arts and Cultural Festival returns this year to Lincoln Park. The mission of the Festival is to celebrate the cultural and artistic diversity of Tremont and Greater Cleveland by encouraging the artistic and cultural endeavors of its visual and performing artists.

The weekend Festival is comprised of four categories or program areas which include: Children's-hands-on arts, historical, and educational projects; Community-area non-profit organizations presenting material about their mission and services; Cultural-food sales by Tremont churches, other non-profit organizations, and Tremont restaurants reflecting the ethnic diversity of the neighborhood; and sales of paintings, sculpture, jewelry, ceramics, and photographs created by Tremont and Northeast Ohio artists.

Artists who are accepted into the Festival through the jurying process (applications and deadlines are below) are eligible for consideration by the jurors for the Festival's top three prizes.

The Festival will also have music and dance performances both Saturday and Sunday on one main stage located near Kenilworth Avenue between West 14th Street and West 11th Street.

Admission to the Festival is free. The Festival is presented by Merrick House, Tremont West Development Corp. and Cleveland Ward 3 Councilman Joe Cimperman
