This year, the Bay Village Historical Society is partnering with BAYarts, which holds its Annual Art and Music Festival on the same day in nearby Huntington Park. The Village Project has also scheduled its “Project Pedal” fundraiser for June 13. The Lake Erie Nature and Science Center will have planetarium programs that day and the Bay Village Fire Department plans an open house. Huntington Playhouse will be open for tours and refreshments and the Village Bicycle Cooperative will offer guidance in bike mechanics and learning about crafty upcycling projects. Transportation will run between venues all day.
A Civil War reenactment and a display of antique cars will be highlights of Cahoon in June. The reenactment will serve as a time machine to transport visitors back to the Civil War era. Military equipment and personal items that belonged to soldiers in the Civil War will be on display. Join in a campfire discussion with members of the 105th Ohio Volunteer Infantry to learn about one of the most important periods in American history.
Admission to Cahoon in June is free again this year. The School of Rock will perform in the gazebo from noon to 2 p.m., followed by Madison Crawl from 2 p.m. to 4 p.m. Culinary artisans from the Cleveland Culinary Launch Kitchen will have a presence at the show, selling their Northeast Ohio-made products. Food concessions will include the Ironwood Café, The Sweet Spot food truck, Island Delights and Veg’n Out Cafe vegan bakery.
Proceeds from this event support the Rose Hill Museum, the Reuben Osborn Learning Center and student scholarships. The museums will be open during Cahoon in June. Contact Cynthia Eakin at 216-213-0312 for additional information.
