Flats East Bank says
Flats East Bank will host Cleveland’s inaugural Flats Festival of the Arts this August! Notable local and national artists will exhibit and sell their work by Cleveland’s waterfront, Aug. 18-21.

The weekend kicks off with an EXCLUSIVE PREVIEW of the Flats Festival of the Arts on Aug. 18 with H.E.L.P.'s premier event, Bites, Booze & Boogie. Join in the celebration of live music and dancing, exclusive samplings of fine wine, cocktails and cuisine from over 30 of Cleveland’s top local restaurants as you enjoy a “first look” at the Flats Festival of the Arts. The event will be held on Thursday, August 18 from 6:30 p.m. to midnight. (Artist preview 6:30-8:30 PM.) Your ticket also gets you into the after-party hosted by FWD Day + Nightclub Cleveland and Magnolia Cleveland.
