Join The WAVE on Friday from 6pm-9pm and Saturday from 10am-7pm at St. John Medical Center Festival of the Arts! Now twenty years strong, the St. John Medical Center Festival of the Arts will bring more than 200 fine artists and craftpersons from across the country to Westlake. The 2013 Festival of the Arts will welcome the community on the following dates and times: Friday, July 12 from 6 - 9 pm; Saturday, July 13 from 10 am – 7 pm and Sunday, July 14, from 10 am – 5 pm. To assist with parking issues, a shuttle bus service will drop off and pick up festival-goers at the Church on the Rise (directly across the street from the hospital on Crocker Road). There will be ample parking, close to the event, and a small fee for parking.
As in the past, admission to the Festival is free and open to the public. Visitors are
encouraged to bring along nonperishable food items which will be donated to local food
banks. Also St. John Medical Center’s Community Outreach will offer free health
screenings from 11 am -- 3 pm on Saturday and Sunday only. The free screenings
include blood pressure, cholesterol, skin, and glucose.
“It’s amazing how the event has grown over the years,” says William A. Young, St. John
Medical Center President and CEO. “The weekend would not be possible without the
tremendous support received by our sponsors, the community as well as wonderful artists
and their creative spirit,” he adds.
The 2013 Festival of the Arts also features live musical entertainment, a food court,
children’s crafts and bounce houses, and family fun. Situated in an idyllic setting along a
one-half-mile walking track, a diverse representation of mixed media will include
jewelry, wearable art, stained glass, basketry, ceramics, watercolors, oils, photography
and more. The Festival of the Arts is a juried show and prize money is awarded to
winners in several categories.
The caliber of artists has grown over the years and the bar was set high twenty years ago
when Judy Burke and Ruth Hopkins organized the first event. And since that time, the
Festival has grown into one of the premier arts and crafts eventsin northeastern Ohio.
People travel from east, west and south to attend the very popular show. For the past
several years, Ardis Radak and Camille Anter have taken the event reigns and the
weekend has reached new heights in its offerings and family fun.
