BAYarts' summer of fun returns

Beginning in June, BAYarts' summer events will resume after a year off. Join us for outdoor, family-friendly events on the Cleveland Metroparks campus. With safety in mind, CDC regulations for outdoor events will be observed.

Kicking off the summer on June 10 is the Thursday Night Market, back to its evening hours (4-8 p.m.) through September. Many new vendors and artisans will join community groups, food trucks and live music. Something new will be Pass the Hat concerts, local musicians experimenting with new platforms, with no fee, but they'll pass the hat!

The Summer Concert series resumes on Sunday nights thanks to a brand new stage made possible by Bay Village Kiwanis. This year's line-up includes many favorites including a double header on Aug. 8. Concessions will be served by guests bartenders volunteering their time.

New this year, BAYarts is excited to introduce Groundworks Dance Theater: a vibrant, nationally recognized troupe dedicated to enriching human experiences through the creation of original contemporary dance. They will perform two evenings; this is a ticketed event that will support this wonderful organization.

BAYarts is thrilled to once again be one of the stops for the Cleveland Shakespeare Festival, this year performing "Romeo and Juliet," a fun, accessible evening for all ages.
