Spring is in the air with it's bounty--A Pittsburgh Gallery Crawl, Lawrenceville Art All Night, Bob Qualters at BE Galleries, The closing for The Samuel Rosenberg's students show and I'm sure lots more. Anyway, if you should be in or around Youngstown this two day festival may be a very good way to see the creative energy building there.
Mahoning Commons Fest is a biannual event that has incorporated a majority of the businesses located on/near Mahoning Avenue in downtown
Inspired by the biannual Open Studio Sale held at the Ward Bakery, the business owners banned together to create a unique event that promotes the betterment of the Mahoning Commons district and encouraging the expansion of the Arts & Entertainment district in Youngstown.
A refurbished turn of the century trolley shuttles the patrons (for FREE) from Fellows Riverside Gardens to the Lemon Grove in downtown – including stops at the eight to ten businesses that lay between. Each of the business owners offers a different experience for the participants. The experience is one that includes food, fine/performing arts, local musicians, hand crafted beer and unique shopping opportunities.
The Mahoning Commons Fests create fun for the entire family while exploring our wonderful city!
Jubilee Limosine's trolley will be running for the duration of the event - the event times are as follows;
Saturday April 30th from Noon - 5pm
Sunday May 1st Noon - 5pm
With extended hours on Saturday night at select venues.
Noon to Five both days in the heart of historic Youngstown.
