Rocky River Fall Arts Festival
The first Rocky River Fall Arts Festival took place in 2009. Mayor Pamela Bobst wanted to celebrate the talents of Rocky River residents and highlight the merchants in the Old Detroit Shopping Area. This festival has now become a fall tradition. The 2015 Festival is scheduled to take place on Saturday, September 12, between 10:00 a.m. and 5:00 p.m.
About 60 artists will be showing their wares, while Jazz bands and musical soloists perform throughout the day. Local organizations will also be represented at the festival. There will be activities for kids, face painting and a variety of food trucks. There will be plenty of free, accessible parking. Admission to the event is free.
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.
