Free arts, music and wind-themed fun at Euclid Wind Festival

Everyone in the community is welcome to enjoy arts, music and wind-themed fun during the annual Euclid Wind Festival on Saturday, June 17 from 3-8 p.m. at Sims Park, 23131 Lakeshore Blvd. in Euclid.

The 2017 Euclid Wind Festival is presented by the city of Euclid and Shore Cultural Centre.

“Because of the wind turbines [the ones that are visible along I-90], a wind festival seemed like a perfect celebration.  We began with a small festival supported through a grant.  There were various wind-themed activities and educational information as well as activities related to renewable energy.  We held two wind festivals at Shore before moving to Sims Park in 2014,” said Laura Kidder, Shore Cultural Centre executive director.

Kids of all ages can get creative making wind-themed crafts, explore the arts, or learn something new at Sims Park as they see the sights of Euclid’s beautiful lakefront and pier.  Visitors can enjoy planned performances on the beach by Parmageddon and DancEvert throughout the day.  Food and beverages will also be available for purchase.

“In so many ways the wind festival aligns with our mission to provide transformative, dynamic and high quality arts, cultural and lifelong learning experiences that enhance the community and quality of life for residents in Euclid and northeast Ohio,” said Christine Cipriani, director of programming and marketing at Shore Cultural Centre.

Last year the festival added helicopter tours of Lake Erie shoreline and 120 ft. zipline to the already exhilarating and exciting activities that get folks into the air and among the lake breezes.  Kids and adults can play on inflatables or float in a tethered hot air balloon, with a new twist planned for the 2017 festival.

Tours from the festival site to the wind turbines at Wm. Sopko & Sons will take place from 3–6 p.m. via Lolly the Trolley.

The two wind turbines were built in 2012 as part of a wind turbine research project in partnership with Case Western Reserve University funded through the Ohio Third Frontier Program.  The smaller turbine has 225 kilowatts that can generate power for 20 homes for one year.  The larger one is 30 stories tall and has 1 megawatt that can generate power for 162 homes for one year.

The first and largest of all the turbines was installed at the world headquarters campus of The Lincoln Electric Company.  It provides enough electricity to provide for approximately ten percent of the demand for the company’s main Euclid manufacturing facility.

Currently plans are underway to install a new turbine in Wickliffe at the Park Ohio Building as part of Lincoln Electric’s ongoing commitment to integrating renewable energy into its manufacturing processes.

Many activities at the Euclid Wind Fest are free for children and families to enjoy, however some activities do have a fee.  Due to popularity, some activities may have limited access and all activities are weather dependent.
