Title: Larchmere Festival

Saturday, July 5, 2014, 10am-6pm



Antiques Fair

In keeping with Larchmere tradition, the spirit of the Larchmere Festival rests soundly with antique decorative arts.  Sublime, distinguished and well-crafted furniture and small collectibles will be featured by both merchants who have shops on the street, in addition to invited dealers who will create a mini antiques fair of quality collectibles. 

Location: Shaker Heights parking lot, 12755 Larchmere


Sidewalk  Sales

Covering the sidewalks from East 130th Street to East 121st street will be interesting vendors of all kinds.  The merchants who have bricks-and-mortar shops on Larchmere will be represented in front of their stores, but the spaces on the edges, corners and in-between will be filled by traveling and guest vendors of collectibles, kitsch, and vintage goods.  Community resources and non-profits complete the picture.  There's an art to the boulevard browse, and with almost ten blocks of great stuff, this is the heart of festival.

Location: Larchmere between E. 121 & E. 130 Streets


Cleveland Bazaar

Not your granny's craft fair!  The artists who comprise the popular indie Bazaar Bizarre are spunky, outrageous, and irreverent -- and so is their art.   We are pleased that this indie market will join us again in our Larchmere celebrations in a new and expanded location, and we invite you to discover the quirky, homemade kitsch that has made them famous.

Location:  former Mo and Son's lot, 12605 Larchmere


Author Alley

Cleveland is quite the literary town!  Loganberry Books presents the 7th Author Alley celebration with 50 local literati.  Here you can meet some interesting folk, expand your horizons, and take home some new reads.

Authors include:  Joe Bauer, Gail Ghetia Bellamy, Michael Garriga, Nina Gibans, Lawrence Hohman, Jennie Jones, Jonathan Knight, Scott Lax, Honey Lazar, Brian McClellan, James Renner, Brad Ricca, Sandy Rozelman, Robert Sberna, Tricia Springstubb, Sam Thomas, and Jane Ann Turzillo.  See the complete list. Time: 12-4pm

Location: Loganberry Books, 13015 Larchmere

For the Kids

A family festival is by definition for everyone, so we hope you bring the whole family to enjoy the art, authors, food, and camaraderie, but we understand the little ones may need to let off some steam, too.  At either end of the street, we have activities designed just for this purpose.
