Summerfair began in 1968 as a small-scale fest saluting the opening of the then-brand-new Cincinnati Playhouse. Today, it is one of the oldest continuously operating art fairs in the country. The festivities head to Coney Island this weekend with 300 fine artists and craftspeople. Their work — for show and for sale — will be exhibited in 12 different categories: photography, painting, drawing/printmaking, wood, metal, sculpture, glass, ceramics, fibers, leather, jewelry and 2D/3D mixed media. It’s easy to become lost in the overwhelming selection, but make sure to save time for live music and entertainment from the likes of Todd Hepburn, Young Heirlooms, the Queen City Cloggers and Habeeba’s belly dancing. Visit the website for the full lineup.


2-8 p.m. Friday; 10 a.m.-8 p.m. Saturday; 10 a.m.-5 p.m. Sunday. $10; $15 three-day pass. Coney Island, 6201 Kellogg Ave., California, summerfair.org
