CINCINNATI (WXIX) - Summerfair Cincinnati, a mixed media art festival, returns to Coney Island this summer for its 56th year.

People can meander around the local amusement park from June 2-4 to view the work of over 300 artists.

Each artist’s work falls into at least one of 12 categories: Photography, painting, drawing/printmaking, wood, metal, sculpture, glass, ceramics, fibers, leather, jewelry and 2D/3D mixed media.

Summerfair started out as a small art fair as a tribute to the opening of Cincinnati’s Playhouse in the Park. It has since grown into one of the oldest continuous art fairs in the country, attracting more than 20,000 art enthusiasts every year.
