June is looking like the beginning of the year around here – with the advent (we hope) of warm weather, come the first of our shows. They are all old favorites and will keep us occupied for the entire month. While I know the attractions of gardening and yard work this time of year, why not take a time-out from the tomatoes and pansies and visit the shows coming your way. We look forward to greeting you at the booth and hearing how your year is progressing.
First on the docket is the 31st Annual Art By The Falls,
Riverside Park in Chagrin Falls, Ohio
Saturday, June 7, 10 am – 7 pm and Sunday,
June 8, 11 am – 5 pm.
This is a lovely setting with plenty of arts experience and they know how to put on a great show. Riverside Park is in the center of a lovely Norman Rockwell style village; you really need to get an ice cream cone and come across the bridge and visit the art show. In addition they raffle off pieces donated by all the artists, so ‘come on down’ to Booth 39.
Our second show is Shaker Heights Arts and Music Festival in the
Van Aken Shopping Center and Shaker Heights Country Club,
Dates are June 21 – 22. Saturday 10 – 8;
Sunday 11 – 5.
It is located in the parking lot on the North side of Farnsleigh Road. To locate through Internet or GPS use the street address for the Fresh Market in the Van Aken Shopping Center, 20233 Van Aken Blvd, Shaker Heights, Ohio 44122-3619.
This is a top-notch show run by Ohio Designer Craftsmen; you will not be disappointed!
The third show in our trio is that old favorite Comfest. Run by the Community Festival here in Columbus, it is a home-grown
show that has as many as 80,000 coming through over three days.
Dates are June 27, 28 & 29, 2014.
My booth is located in the inside street loop, under the trees, same place I’ve been for years! It’s cooler there.
Hours are to 11 on Friday, til 10 Saturday, and 9 pm Sunday, though we might close a bit earlier depending on the weather. Yes, I’ve been rained on and rained out several times, but we all keep coming back in defiance of the odds. So break out your jeans and cut-offs and prepareto relax to a wide variety of music venues and booths. Bring a picnic (just no alcohol) and stop in at the Booth Under The Trees. See you there!
Now that you know our deepest, darkest schedule secrets you can make plans to intercept us on one of our appointed rounds. See you soon!
