Countdown to Summerfair 2023
Each year the weekend after Memorial Day Summerfair returns to Cincinnati’s historic Coney Island. This, the 56th year, the Fair will be held June, 2, 3, & 4 and will feature more than 300 fine artists and craftspeople from around the country, as well as regional performers, and a variety of gourmet arts (great food and drinks)
What started as a small art fair’s salute to the opening of Cincinnati’s Playhouse in the Park has grown into one of the oldest continuous art fairs in the country, drawing more than 20,000 art enthusiasts to see and purchase the works of artists from across the United States and Canada.
Artists apply and are then judged, allowing only the “cream of the crop” to exhibit their art at the fair in twelve categories including photography, painting, drawing/printmaking, wood, metal, sculpture, glass, ceramics, fibers, leather, jewelry and 2D/3D mixed media.
Advance online tickets are available for one day or multi-day admission. Tickets can also be purchased for $10.00 CASH ONLY at the gate with children 12 and under admitted free.
Summerfair, which will be held 13 miles from downtown Cincinnati at historic Coney Island (just off I-275 at Kellogg Avenue), draws more than 20,000 people each year. New hours for the Fair are 12 to 7 p.m. Friday; 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. Saturday; and 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Sunday.
Parking is included in the ticket price. The fair will be held rain or shine. Per Coney rules, NO DOGS permitted on the grounds unless they are a registered service dog.
