SAVE THE DATE: Summerfair 2013 Returns for 46th Year
Annual Fine Arts and Crafts Fair Set for May 31, June 1 and June 2
Summerfair 2013 returns for the 46th year on May 31, June 1 and June 2. The fair, located at Cincinnati’s historic Coney Island, will feature more than 300 fine artists and craftspeople from around the country as well as regional performers, a variety of gourmet arts, and the Youth Arts Rocks! area for kids.
What started as a small art fair’s salute to the opening of Cincinnati’s Playhouse in the Park has grown into one of the oldest continuous art fairs, drawing more than 20,000 art enthusiasts to see and purchase the works of artists from across the United States and Canada.
Artists apply to exhibit their art at the fair in ten categories including photography, painting, wood, ceramics, fibers, leather, jewelry and 2D/3D mixed media.
“Summerfair is the official kick-off to summer in the Tri-State” said Anne Poppe, 2013 Fair Chair. “At the fair, art patrons will get the chance to experience the summer weather at beautiful Coney Island, visit with their favorite artists, enjoy delicious food from gourmet arts and listen to the musical stylings of some of the regions greatest performers.”
Summerfair, the 501c3 non profit's primary fundraiser, depends on the efforts of nearly 400 volunteers. That, and the weather! "It's held rain or shine" Poppe says of the fair, which runs May 31, June 1 and 2 in 2013.
Summerfair raises money for a variety of arts opportunities. The group provides awards, scholarships and exhibitions to artists and small arts organizations in the Tri-State.
Tickets can be purchased for $10.00 CASH ONLY at the gate with children 12 and under admitted free. Advance one day or multi-day tickets are available online.
Summerfair 2013, which will be held 13 miles from downtown Cincinnati at historic Coney Island (just off I-275 at Kellogg Avenue), draws more than 20,000 people each year. Hours for the fair are 2 to 8 p.m. Friday; 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. Saturday; and 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Sunday.
Parking is included in the ticket price. The fair will be held rain or shine. Per Coney rules, NO DOGS permitted on the grounds unless they are a registered service dog.
