Time & Location
About the Event
I will be one of the poets reading at the Youngstown State University Summer Festival in the AUTHOR'S TENT for Lit Youngstown! Come enjoy the festival and stop and hear me read from my newly released book, THE SEA WAS NEVER FAR.
The 21th Annual Summer Festival of the Arts as a robust celebration of the performing and visual arts, prominently including a juried art show. Featuring the works of local, regional and national artists, this event welcomes over 80 artists yearly. Music, dance and theatrical performances throughout the festival grounds complement the art and attract a diverse and fun crowd.
The Summer Festival of the Arts is the flagship event for the Summer Festival of the Arts Weekend, which includes a Friday night concert, Youngstown Wine and Jazz concert, a Gospel concert and St. Nicholas Greek Orthodox Summerfest. Other activities designed to enhance the Summer Festival of the Arts include the Festival of Nations, where ethnic groups display artifacts and sell food; an extensive children's hands-on art tent; a silent auction and numerous displays and activities sponsored by community arts and cultural groups.
Free parking can be found at any YSU parking deck or surface lot within easy walking distance of the Festival.
