Saturday, June 28, 11am-5pm


click for larger imageReturning after its first and phenomenal year, the Larchmere Flea Market & Festival is more than a day of bargains and goodies, but of neighbors, festivities, workshops and camaraderie.  Tucked into corners and lots up and down the 10-blocks of Larchmere Boulevard are dealers of vintage goods, antiques, art, collectibles, and a special community flea market lot.  Community resources, non-profit organizations and green businesses also display information and answer questions.  And food! (did we mention the food?!)!

The Passport Project Global Dance & Music Collective will perform 1-3pm, the Euclid Beach Rocket Car will ride the Boulevard 1-4pm.  A 50/50 Raffle and commemorative bags-with-stuff-sacks provide fun fundraising opportunities.  Workshops and demonstrations enliven the festival flair, including a mask-making workshop, sidewalk chalking, drumming, spinning wool, health seminars, and making silk suncatchers.  Prizes are available to children who come in their Parade the Circle costumes (it's good to have an excuse to wear your costumes again!). 

This year, we have confirmed 50+ vendors of antique, vintage and handmade goods, 20+ neighbors in the community flea market area, in addition to the bricks-and-mortar merchants on Larchmere.  A local author book fair features 2 dozen authors, including Les Roberts, Gail Ghetia Bellamy, Michael Heaton and Marian Morton (complete list, with blurbs, available at

The Festival will be a blast for all.  Come be a part of thriving city neighborhood that takes a step back in time but is fully planted in the present.

Co-sponsored by the Larchmere Merchants Association and the Larchmere Community Association, with grant assistance from Neighborhood Connections.  The Cleveland Foundation's Neighborhood Connections is a special grants program designed to assist Cleveland neighborhood groups to strengthen the social network of their community while dealing creatively with their most important concerns.  Grants are intended to spur small grassroots community efforts, and while doing so, to assist groups and individuals in the community to connect with others.  Grants may be used for a wide array of activities and projects, and groups are encouraged to think in new ways about what will work in their communities and with whom they might partner.
