The first Rocky River Fall Arts Festival took place in 2009. Mayor Pamela Bobst wanted to celebrate the talents of the Rocky River Residents and highlight the merchants in the Old Detroit Shopping Area. The festival takes place on a beautiful late September morning and afternoon in the Old Detroit Road area of Rocky River, Ohio.
This year, the Rocky River Fall Arts Festival is scheduled to take place on Saturday, September 16, 2017 between 10:00 am and 5:00 pm.
We will have 72 artists participating at this year’s event. A variety of entertainment including Jazz bands and musical soloists are scheduled throughout the day. Also, local organizations will also be represented at the festival. There will be activities for kids, face painting and a variety of food trucks at this year’s festival. There will be plenty of free, accessible parking. Admission to the event is free and open to the public.
The Rocky River Falls Arts Festival is an event hosted by the Rocky River Parks and Recreation Foundation, a non-profit organization that administers this festival coordinating the efforts of numerous hard working volunteers in cooperation with the City of Rocky River. The financial support for the Rocky River Fall Arts Festival is raised primarily through sponsorships, donations from local community merchants and entry fees. The money raised from this festival goes directly back to the community for funding such things as playground equipment and other valued park improvements.
