The People of Cleveland Know How to Keep the Party Going All Summer Long

Summer is in full swing, and Cleveland is the place to be. Check out these great summer activities that will have you laughing and dancing all summer.


Hump day is full of action this summer. Join one of Cleveland’s favorite radio stations, the WMMS’ Alan Cox Show and the Funny Bus, and explore Cleveland’s unique neighborhoods and entertainment areas on this 90-minute trip. The tour guide is a local comedian who will have you laughing before you know it. Since you aren’t driving, you can bring your beer and wine on the Funny bus. But even better, Collision Bend is the point of departure, and present your digital ticket to receive two complimentary beers per ticket. Make it a summer to remember aboard The award-winning Funny Bus Comedy City Tour.

Wade Oval Wednesdays are back. University Circle is jamming to reggae, jazz, classic rock, and more sounds. Now through August 16th, the free concert series will have you movin’ and groovin’.

Shop Local

Cleveland Bazaar has been supporting “Shop Local” since 2004. On select Saturdays throughout the year, this pop-up shopping experience is in the courtyard across from The West Side Market in Ohio City.

Discover handmade and one-of-a-kind treasures from local artists and businesses. Grab some spicy pickles or pottery. Find a new favorite hot sauce or a handcrafted item for a new baby. You won’t leave empty-handed, I promise. Summer is buzzing all over the place, and if you are lucky enough to live in Northeast Ohio, I encourage you to check out any or all of these exciting events. But don’t stop there. Festivals, art shows, music events, and cook-offs are happening all around the area. Let us know where you venture next at our Compass Ohio Facebook Page.
