Fairview Park Summerfest 2013 June 27, 28, 29, 30 | Events
Fairview Park Summerfest opens Thursday, June 27! The budget-friendly family event is held at Bohlken Park. The first Fairview Park (Ohio) Family Summerfest was held in 1992. This multi-day fun-filled festival has grown over the years to include activities such as the parade, carnival rides, spaghetti dinner, pancake breakfast, dog parade, and a huge fireworks display.
Did you know that Summerfest is a 501(C 3) non-profit organization that is not a publicly funded event? While City Hall helps out as much as possible (and our Mayor and City workers are phenomenal!), the rides, music, tents and all that goes into making this event happens are paid for by sponsorships, donations, registration fees and ticket sales. We are always looking for sponsors and donations to help keep Summerfest around for years to come.
We have a new amusement park ride company this year. This year the rides will be open on Thursday night June 27 along with an outdoor movie.
