Coventry holiday fest is Dec. 8
Coventry Village will host its annual Holiday Festival on Saturday, Dec. 8, starting at 11 a.m. and running through the evening. Offering events and activities for all ages, the district is proud to present something for everyone this holiday season.
This year’s festival is taking place in cooperation with the Grog Shop and B Side Lounge’s Jingle Bell Shop, and reflects the partnership between the Coventry P.E.A.C.E. Campus and Coventry Village merchants.
With special music, holiday characters, Coventry Cash, holiday treats, crafts, classic movies and, of course, photos with Santa Claus, Coventry Village is bringing back all of the festival favorites to this beloved neighborhood event.
The Jingle Bell Shop, a flea market of local makers, vendors, and Coventry Village merchants, will run from noon until 6 p.m. at the Grog Shop and B Side Lounge, and offers a unique chance to find the perfect gift for a loved one while supporting local businesses.
Bring the kids out for storytime at the Coventry Village branch of Heights Libraries, a performance of “Around The World In 80 Days” at Ensemble Theatre, a Creative Expression workshop at Lake Erie Ink, arts and crafts with ARTFUL, a holiday movie at the former Centrum Theater, and a chance to interact with favorite holiday characters.
For the rest of the crew, merchants will be offering special activities, open houses, workshops, games and treats.
Adults can keep the holiday spirit going into the evening with the Coventry Ugly Sweater Bar Crawl, or dance the night away at Grog Shop or B Side’s Cruel Winter Fest or Gumbo Dance Party.
