Organizers of the East Richmond Heights Art & Music Festival are calling out for local artists, musicians, performers, food vendors and volunteers to sign up for the annual event.

The annual neighborhood celebration will take place Saturday, July 27 from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Bernhard Avenue between Cypress and Elm avenues in front of the Gyuto Foundation Tibetan Buddhist monastery.

Past incarnations of the event have included multiple performances underneath the towering “Sweet Performance Tree” on the neighborhood’s Bernhard Avenue, along with ample vendor booths, food trucks and a special blessing by the nearby monastery’s Tibetan Buddhist monks. The Gyuto Foundation also leaves its beautiful grounds open for festivalgoers’ enjoyment.

Those wishing to participate in the event as vendors, musicians, artists or otherwise should contact [email protected]. Learn more about the free-admission festival here.
