Seasonal Special Happenings

Riverside Cemetery Music Festival

When: Sun., July 17 2016

As far as unconventional music venues go, the Riverside Cemetery ranks with the best of them. Located in Brooklyn Centre of Cleveland Ohio, the cemetery was initially a 102-acre farm owned by Titus Brainard; it’s the first major sized cemetery on the west side of the Cuyahoga River. The cemetery has played host to the Riverside Cemetery Music Festival each year for the past six years. In continued celebration of its 140th anniversary, the music festival returns to the site today from 1 to 4 p.m. with Mike Jacobs Dixie Jazz Ensemble, a longtime ensemble whose credits include national, political and industrial conventions, Ron Davis and the Eddie Baccus Quartet and violinist Mary Beth Ions, a first call solo and strolling performer. In the case of rain or bad weather, the show will go on at the Archwood United Church of Christ. Admission is free. (Niesel)
