Euclid Beach Blast brings together artists, musicians and Lake Erie lovers for a FREE evening of food, festivities, art and music!

Euclid Beach Blast will celebrate and explore the connections between our lake, our historic lakefront parks and our community through visual and participatory art, live music performances, workshops and games. 

Euclid Beach Blast will challenge artists and community members to explore, reimagine, create, share and dream Euclid Beach Park’s past, present and future!



Artists of all disciplines will exhibit, activate and engage with Euclid Beach Park’s past, present and future. Artists will invite visitors to discover, explore and reinvent Euclid Beach Park and North Collinwood’s lakefront through visual, interactive and performative art.


Euclid Beach Blast welcomes all Clevelanders, residents and newcomers alike to come together to celebrate the less read story lines of Euclid Beach and showcase the park in terms of what it is and what it can be; a place with a living and breathing history and an engaging public space for recreation, preservation, environmental stewardship and community gatherings.


Euclid Beach State Park, located in Cleveland's east side neighborhood of Collinwood, serves as a calm reminder of a grand space with a lively past. From 1895-1969, Euclid Beach was an amusement park and former summer destination for thousands nationwide.
