Cincinnati’s premier art show, Summerfair, is returning to Coney Island for its 56th year Friday-Sunday, June 2-4.

Consistently ranking in the top 25 U.S. fine art and design shows, Summerfair supports artists and small arts organizations through scholarships, awards and exhibitions. The weekend will feature work from more than 325 juried artists, as well as regional performers and unique, gourmet food and drinks for sale.

Organizers say the artists represent 12 categories: photography, painting, drawing/printmaking, wood, metal, sculpture, glass, ceramics, fibers, leather, jewelry and 2D/3D mixed media.

“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,” organizers said in a release.

Considered as one of the top five best Midwest art fairs by, Summerfair has given more than $2 million to the regional arts community in its nearly six-decade history.

Hours for Summerfair are noon to 7 p.m. Friday, June 2; 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. Saturday, June 3; and 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Sunday, June 4. Tickets can be purchased as single-day or multi-day; one-day tickets are $10, while multi-day are $15. Children 12 and under get in for free.
