Summerfair Cincinnati is making its comeback after transitioning to a virtual platform last year due to the pandemic. Returning to Coney Island, Summerfair Cincinnati will take place June 4-6. This will be the 54th-annual festival.

Launched in Mount Adams in 1968, the nonprofit aims to support young artists and community-based art programs through exhibitions, scholarships and awards. Summerfair Cincinnati is one of the oldest continuous art fairs in the country.

This year’s commemorative poster was designed by Lakota Local School district art teacher Amy Panfalone and features a half sun with a variety of patterns and hues including orange, yellow and teal. 

Summerfair Cincinnati 2020 was cancelled due to COVID and transformed into a virtual holiday shopping event.

Tickets are $10 at the gate (cash only) or single or multi-day tickets can be purchased online. Kids 12 and under get in free.
