A Community Celebration of Music & Dance

The Lake Erie Folk Fest is a collaboration of the North East Ohio Musical Heritage Association,  producer of the Blue Sky Folk Festival in Kirtland, and the Shore Cultural Centre, a former high school turned innovative arts center in downtown Euclid.

The event brings two communities together in a late-winter cross-pollination of the arts: Euclid’s diverse arts community, and the Northeast Ohio folk music community. Questions? Email  producer Laura Lewis, or call Shore Cultural Centre at (216) 289-8578.
