The Kamm's Corners Summer Arts & Entertainment Series

Presenting a wide breadth of musical, visual, and culinary arts at our family friendly events, the Kamm's Corners Summer Arts and Entertainment Series launches each year with The Hooley on Kamm's Corners and continues weekly throughout the summer at our Kamm's Corners Farmers Market every Sunday from June through October, now celebrating its 10th season! See the flyer. It is also a feature of Asphalt Cinema, a free outdoor movie evening on the third Fridays of June, July, and August at Impett Park. See the 2016 flyer.

We are grateful for the volunteer work of the many residents and business owners who take part in planning and running these events, making the series such a great success! To become involved, please e-mail marilyn.osborne@kammscorners.com or call 216-252-6559, ext. 1600.

We appreciate support from our generous sponsors such as Fairview Hospital in helping to pay for the Summer Arts & Entertainment Series.

In addition, we thank the residents of Cuyahoga County for supporting this program through a public grant from Cuyahoga Arts & Culture (CAC).

Funding from CAC is different from our other funders because Cuyahoga County residents voted in 2006 to create this agency to fund the amazing arts and culture in our community with local tax dollars from the sale of cigarettes. Since then, CAC has invested more than $140 million to support thousands of enriching arts and culture experiences in every corner of the county. 

In November 2015, Cuyahoga County voters said “yes” to Issue 8, the penny-and-a-half tax and sole revenue source for CAC. The renewed tax, which was set to expire in January, 2017, will provide ten additional years to invest in the local arts and culture sector. CAC looks toward the next decade and remains dedicated to continuing its mission.

KCDC is pleased to be among the groups funded for art programing in 2016.

Final Asphalt Cinema of the Summer Featured City of Cleveland Safety Fair, Games, Art, and Fun

A couple of hundred people brought lawn chairs and blankets to Impett Park on West 153rd Street for our final summer evening of music, art, games, and prizes that ended under the stars with a family friendly movie: Zootopia. The fun began on Friday, August 19, at 6:30 p.m. free of charge, thanks to our sponsors.

Kids tried creative games of chance and skill for small prizes provided by local merchants and organizations. A ring toss, pin the tail on the doggy, a bounce house, and balloon creations kept the kids engaged. There was also a BOGO Chipotle coupon give-away.

A City of Cleveland Safety Fair took place in the area adjacent to the parking lot from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. Guests met first-hand with law enforcement agency representatives. Kids walked through the smoke house and got up close and personal with a fire truck, motorcycle, and bomb squad truck. Everyone received giveaways and information from city departments and other safety-related equipment providers.

In addition to games, art activities took place and everyone was entertained with the help of a DJ, starting at 8 p.m. Kids drew characters from the featured film and won a prize! The artistic portion of Asphalt Cinema was supported in part by the residents of Cuyahoga County through a public grant from Cuyahoga Arts & Culture.

Hot dogs, cold beverages, and fresh popcorn were available for purchase from West Denison Baseball League. The movie and the fun activities were FREE of charge thanks to our Asphalt Cinema sponsor, Fairview Hospital!

Be sure to join us next summer on the third Fridays of June, July, and August!
