Heights Music Hop adds venues, releases preliminary schedule

Heights Music Hop, a free festival of live music, will take place in three Cleveland Heights business districts. Performances are staggered and feature a wide variety of musical genres. Visitors are encouraged to “hop” around to various locations to sample performances, and enjoy food, drinks and special offers from local merchants. The Hop begins on Thursday, Sept. 7, in Coventry Village, continues Friday, Sept. 8, in Cedar Fairmount, and culminates Saturday, Sept. 9, in Cedar Lee.

In addition to the many venues already announced, festival organizers have added an additional location in each business district: Vintage Apparel: Made in America, the pop-up shop located in the former American Apparel store in Coventry Village, 1782 Coventry Road; Nighttown in Cedar Fairmount, 12383 Cedar Road; and Parnell’s Pub in Cedar Lee, 2167 Lee Road.

Heights Music Hop is presented by FutureHeights and is supported in part by the residents of Cuyahoga County through a public grant from Cuyahoga Arts & Culture.

Additional sponsors and partners include: Dominion Energy; Whole Foods Market; Heights Observer; Zagara’s Marketplace; the Cedar Fairmount, Cedar Lee, and Coventry Village special improvement districts; Dewey’s Pizza; Keller National; the city of Cleveland Heights; The BottleHouse Brewery; CLE Urban Winery; Digizoom Media; Cellar Door Cleveland; Grog Shop; Map Creative; Rad Graphics; Family Connections; Larchmere PorchFest; Brite Winter Festival; WJCU Radio; WRUW Radio; Vern & Ellsworth Hann; Mitchell’s Fine Chocolates; Cleveland Cinemas; Green Tara Yoga; and The Sweet Fix Bakery.
