GREAT DAY FOR ARTS IN GEAUGA – Find arts fest fun August 6 at both The West Woods and Chardon Square

Geauga Park District’s annual arts festival is now infused with a greater focus on the natural inspiration behind the art. Come out for some Nature-driven discovery in the parks during the Nature & Arts Fest on Sunday, August 6, from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. at The West Woods!

This festival also runs parallel to Chardon Square Association’s 42nd annual Chardon Arts Festival, hosted one extra hour from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Historic Chardon Square, making for a brilliant day of arts shopping in Geauga County. Both festivals include free admission and parking, are wheelchair/stroller accessible, and receive sponsorship from The News-Herald.

Juried artists at both annual festivals represent a wide variety of different genres. In particular the Nature & Arts Fest has confirmed artists bringing hand-forged steel, knitting and crocheting, prints, paintings, fiber art, beach glass, cutting boards, encaustic (beeswax), pottery, clothing and more. Shopping will be indoors and out. Activities include hikes, live music, live animals and interactive booths featuring our local friends in conservation, plus a food truck, kettle corn and shaved ice available to enjoy!  For a complete schedule of events and vendors, visit under Activities, then Special Events & Art Shows.

“Nature & Arts Fest highlights the fabulous Nature to be discovered right outside our doors, as well as artists who take their inspiration from it,” said Holly Sauder, special events coordinator. “It’s truly a day of celebration! Please join us for this day of live music, Nature exploration and great shopping at The West Woods.”

Meanwhile, the Chardon Arts Festival is hosted entirely outdoors and features 100+ professionally juried artists. It is estimated that 5,000 people enjoy this beautiful show each year! Please note that no dogs are permitted. Learn more about the festival on Chardon Square at
