Thanks to the quirks of the 2019 calendar, Memorial Day is days past … but it’s still May. Not to fear, though. June will be busting out all over in no time. And June isn’t alone. Arts and entertainment are busting out for everyone, too. Good thing the days are longer these days…
Astronomers and sticklers will tell you that summer does not officially begin until June 21. These people have apparently not experienced either Cincinnati’s arts scene or humid heat in late May and early June. To my allergy-clouded eyes, it looks like summer to me. Judge for yourself.
The first weekend of June signals the opening of Summerfair at Coney Island. The fine arts and crafts show marks its 51st year with more than 300 exhibitors from across the U.S. The juried exhibition includes works ranging from ceramics and sculpture to painting and photography.
Summerfair 2016 has put out the call for volunteers to work during the show. The event relies on 400 volunteers, with shifts averaging two hours. Proceeds from Summerfair help fund grants to local nonprofits and arts groups to support art-related projects.
