Summerfair this weekend at Coney Island

Summerfair 2011, the 44th installment of the fine arts and crafts fair, is this weekend at historic Coney Island.

Summerfair gates open to patrons on Friday, June 3 at 2:00 p.m. and close at 8:00 p.m. The inaugural Little Black Dress Event, presented by Summerfair Cincinnati and Cincy Chic, will begin at 7 p.m. and close at 10 p.m. Friday evening. Summerfair continues on Saturday from 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. and Sunday from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.

Cost is $10 for adults and free for children 12 and under. Parking is also free. 

Summerfair is a combination of more than 300 fine artists and craftspeople from around the country exhibiting and selling works ranging from ceramics and jewelry, to fiber arts, photography and 2D/3D mixed media art. The event also features 4 stages of local and regional entertainers, a youth arts area and a variety of gourmet arts vendors.

New this year is the Little Black Dress Event, presented by Summerfair Cincinnati and Cincy Chic in the Moonlight Gardens, featuring jewelry and accessories from select Summerfair artists and little black dresses from area boutiques.  

Summerfair was started in 1968 as a Mt. Adams street fair and has grown into one of the nation's oldest continuous arts fairs. The fair draws more than 20,000 people annually and pumps the proceeds back into the local arts community in the form of grants, scholarships and exhibitions.

The 164-foot Bud Select 55 hot air balloon will also be on display at Coney Island this weekend.

Summerfair 2011 will be held rain or shine. For more information, visit www.summerfair.org.
