You know how much I love recurring blog features, so here’s a new one for you. Every couple of weeks or so, I’ll give you a rundown of some fabulous upcoming CLE events – events that are great answers to “Why Cleveland?”
On Thursday, April 21, the Cleveland Clinic and on-line magazine Slate are hosting a national summit on Childhood Obesity. The purpose is to brainstorm ideas for reducing childhood obesity and the speakers include Melody Barnes, who designed the First Lady’s Let’s Move campaign, Oklahoma Mayor Mick Cornett, and an all-star line-up of doctors, researchers, and authors. The panel is moderated by Dr. Delos Cosgrove, president and CEO of the Cleveland Clinic, and David Plotz of Slate. The conversation runs from 8:30am – 12:15pm at the Bank of America conference center. And it’s free and open to the public! All you have to do is click on the link above and RSVP. Just another example of CLE being in the forefront of the health and medical industry!
On Friday, April 22 the Keyhole Gallery in Lakewood is hosting an opening reception for an exhibit entitled “Industrial Cleveland” featuring works by artist Dee Zingale. According to Keyhole Gallery, the work reflects the artist’s personality – “bold, direct, strong.” The same can be said about CLE, no? If you can’t make the opening reception, the exhibit runs through May 13.
On Saturday, May 14, Kamm’s Corners holds its annual Hooley. This is a neighborhood street festival running from 12pm to 8pm. There will be Irish dancers, music, food, drinks, the St. Ignatius Circus Company, and much more!
On Friday, May 27, Emerging Chefs will celebrate Mardi Gras en Mai. Featuring Chef Chris Quinn and starting at 6pm with a Mardi Gras parade, this event is sure to be nothing short of incredible. Get your tickets here – the last event sold out!
