Jul 03, 2018 03:19PM
The Willoughby Western Lake County Chamber of Commerce will host approximately 10,000 visitors for the 27th annual downtown Willoughby ArtsFest on Saturday July 21 from 10 am to 6 pm. This juried event features 140+ art exhibitors from seven states, whose creations range from sculpture, metals, jewelry, painting, photography, wood, glass, ceramics and graphic arts.
The ArtsFest is a great opportunity for art lovers to see and purchase a wide range of art and also enjoy the wide range of food choices from downtown Willoughby restaurants and local merchants. The quaint, downtown Willoughby storefronts are the perfect backdrop for the artist’s booths on the street and in the shady Point Park. Food trucks such as Barrio, Slyman’s and East Coast Custard will complement the delicious lunch and dinner menus that the downtown Willoughby restaurants offer. Bands will be playing in the park gazebo throughout the day and the wine tent will provide wine samples from various Ohio wineries.
This free admission event draws visitors from all across northeast Ohio. The ArtsFest event gives the Willoughby Western Lake County Chamber of Commerce an opportunity to showcase very talented artists and support the local merchants and restaurants in downtown Willoughby.
All proceeds from the event go to support the Willoughby Western Lake County Chamber of Commerce, a nonprofit, so that they can continue to facilitate the Artsfest and other events and to promote business in western Lake County.
