MidTown Opening Day: Celebrate neighborhood pride, Cleveland Foundation HQ opening


It’s MidTown Opening Day this coming Saturday, July 15—a free, daylong neighborhood festival and block party centered on Euclid Avenue and East 66th Street, with activity hubs throughout the MidTown neighborhood.

Hosted by MidTown Cleveland and the Cleveland Foundation, Opening Day will celebrate  the grand opening of the Cleveland Foundation headquarters as a major milestone in the realization of MidTown’s Neighborhood Vision Plan—a comprehensive strategy that aims to unite the physical and social aspects of the neighborhood by highlighting its diverse assets and opportunities.

Attendees will have the chance to participate in programming that align with MidTown’s Neighborhood Vision Plan goals including reaching resident health goals; getting work ready; building youth resilience; and be a local hub for Black history, entrepreneurship, and celebration.
