CLEVELAND - This year, the eighth annual Ingenuity Fest will be held on Cleveland’s lakefront, north of Cleveland Browns Stadium.
Docks 30 and 32 at the Port of Cleveland will be home this weekend to local artists, innovators and bands to showcase their talents. Last year's festival was at the Veterans Memorial Bridge.
The festival runs from Sept. 14 to 16 and admission is free. Last year's attendance was about 45,000 visitors.
The two warehouses will provide more than 120,000 square feet of indoor display space, and additional outdoor eating and social space right on the lake. The new location affords visitors a view of downtown looking to the south and a panoramic view of Lake Erie to the north.
The festival will highlight area artists and performance artists, as well as technological innovations and inventions, like a 3D printer and robotic beer dispensers.
There will be scheduled talks on everything from the Wright brothers to the Mars landing. There will be a performance of the Apollo song “Cycle”, created from Apollo 11 transcripts, to commemorate Neil Armstrong’s historic moon landing.
Ingenuity offers an eclectic mix of local, regional and international talent on two stages with bands Dragonette, Helaldo Negro, Matuto and others.
