Conceived in 1969 as a block party (and later abandoned amid the not-so-hip 1980s), the Harmony Park's Hessler Street Fair has evolved into one of the biggest and most involved parties of its kind.

This free event sort of opens the floodgates for summertime neighborhood fun in Cleveland. And there's plenty of fun to go around — pass it to your left, as they say, or is that something else? — as it all begins at Hessler. Festival music, dancing and shopping goes from 10 a.m. to dusk Saturday and Sunday. Note that finding nearby (free) parking is nearly impossible, so feel free to take public transportation.

JiMiller Band closes out Saturday night and Carlos Jones and the PLUS Band ends the festival on Sunday. The whole music lineup can be found here.

We’re keeping you informed…
...and it’s what we love to do. From local politics and culture to national news that hits close to home, Scene Magazine has been keeping Cleveland informed for years.

It’s never been more important to support local news sources, especially as we all deal with the ramifications of the coronavirus pandemic. Almost everything Scene is about -- our stories, our events, our advertisers -- comes down to getting together. With events on hold, and no print distribution for the foreseeable future, every little bit helps.

A free press means accountability and a well-informed public, and we want to keep our unique and independent reporting available for many, many years to come.

If quality journalism is important to you, please consider a donation to Scene. Every reader contribution is valuable and so appreciated, and goes directly to support our coverage of critical issues and neighborhood culture. Thank you.
