Great Lakes Burning River Fest July 23-24

Good Cheer. Good Cause. Good Beer
Since 2001, folks from all over the Great Lakes region have come together to remember the 1969 burning of the Cuyahoga River and celebrate the renewed sense of eco-consciousness the infamous fire sparked. The annual Burning River Fest features educational exhibits from area environmental groups, fresh food from local farms and eateries, live music and a special appearance by Great Lakes Brewing Company’s Christmas Ale! Help celebrate the “Spirit of Giving” and spark a new level of environmental awareness.
What To Expect At This Year’s Fest: Over 30 musicians and bands on three stages ranging from funk to blues to eclectic Great Lakes Brewing Company fish fry and craft beers, and other local restaurants and chefs adding to the flavor with fresh food offerings and demonstrations Local environmental groups featuring interactive and educational displays for all ages The most spectacular nighttime views of Cleveland from a wonderful greenspace right in the heart of Cleveland’s industry!

When: Saturday, July 23, 2011: 6-11PM Sunday, July 24, 2011: 1-6PM Rain or Shine!
Where: Historic Coast Guard Station (located at the mouth of the Cuyahoga River on Whiskey Island)
Cost: Online Presale: $8/per person/per day or $15/weekend pass (per person) At the Gate: $10/per person/per day Kids 12 and under are free!

Proceeds benefit The Burning River Foundation, whose purpose through grants, donations and community involvement is to provide extensive education and resources for the Ecological Conservation / Environmental Protection / Scientific Exploration / Historic Preservation and Sustainable Future of our waterways.
