Cleveland Garlic Festival

Northeast Ohio is prime garlic-growing territory, so it makes perfect sense to honor the stinking rose with its very own festival.

The festival also rounds up many of the region’s best garlic growers, making the fest the best place for wannabe garlic growers to purchase this year’s planting stock. The event takes place today from noon to 8 p.m. and tomorrow from noon to 6 p.m. at Shaker Square. Admission is $9.

Dogs of Train Ave.

Sun., Aug. 26

A renowned visual and tattoo artist, Sean Jason Kelly stumbled upon a dead dog along Train Ave. a few years ago. After he discovered the poor animal in a garbage bag, he found several more through subsequent months and years and began getting them cremated out of respect, so they didn’t end up tossed in a landfill with trash. As the jars of ashes started to line up, he decided to incorporate them into his artwork, so he could tell their stories. Local filmmaker Jeff Theman (Guilty Till Proven Innocent) followed him around while he worked and has shot a documentary movie about Kelly's artwork. The trailer for the resulting film, Train Ave., will premiere today when Kelly’s exhibit, Dogs of Train Ave., opens with a reception that takes place from 1 to 3 p.m. today at the Derek Hess Gallery.

Post Road at The Grove

Fri., Aug. 24, 7-10 p.m.
phone 440-471-1041

Post Road’s formation in 2011 was meant to be a one time show. As a business owner in Twinsburg Steve was asked by the library committee if he could play guitar and sing for a library fundraising dance. The theme was ‘country hoe-down’. Realizing that nobody would dance to a solo guitarist singing country love songs, Steve decided to call on some friends to help him out. Free
