Celebrating Tremont’s rich ethnic and cultural diversity and its vibrant arts and entertainment scene, the Festival has become an annual tradition for thousands of Greater Clevelanders. The Festival is presented by Merrick House and co-presented by Tremont West Development Corporation and Cleveland Ward 3 Councilman Kerry McCormack, and is made possible with the generous support of many sponsors and volunteers.

– Artists’ Village: sales of painting, sculpture, fine jewelry, glass, wood, ceramics, graphics and photographs created by Tremont and northeast Ohio artists. Within the Artists’ Village are the 11 neighborhood artists of the Tremont Artists’ Gallery presented by Walkabout Tremont and the Tremont Art Committee
-and the local growers and artisans of the Tremont Famers’ Market.
The Festival has free music and dance performances Saturday and Sunday on two stages: the TACF Main Stage located in the Beer-Wine-Spirits Garden and the Let’s Dance – Music & Dance from Around the World Stage – in the Children’s & Youth Village
