2017 Summer Arts & Culture Series

Thank you to everyone who partnered, volunteered and participated in the 2017 OBFG Summer Arts Series! It was a wonderful success and we look forward to doing it again next summer! The details of the 2017 series are listed below. Check back in late Spring 2018 for updated program information on the next series.

In conjunction with Cleveland Summer Cinema and the Old Brooklyn Farmer's Market, the Old Brooklyn Families Group presents the 2017 Summer Arts & Culture Series. We'll be bringing FREE art, music, theater, dance and more to Old Brooklyn on Tuesday evenings throughout the summer. This weekly series of family-friendly, fun and educational programs happens with the help of some very talented local arts and culture groups and institutions. A big thank you to all of our community partners for participating and providing us with some awesome summer programming!

 

Plus, Market Money is back this year! The first 10 families to show up to our concessions table starting at 6pm will receive $10 in Market Money to spend at the Farmers Market!

This series was made possible by a grant from Neighborhood Connections. We look forward to continuing this series in the future and hope you can come out to participate!
