The Toledo Museum of Art has new acquisitions on display, and they want you to be the first to see them. This exhibit features prints, paintings, and other decorative arts from all over the country. Exotic birds were all the rave in both art and culture during the 17th and 18th centuries. These obsessions were in the form of artist’s paintings as well as feathered accessories and décor. Enjoy this free exhibit while it is still on display.
The Toledo Jeep Fest is back for 2021 and better than ever. Live music, food, events, a massive Vendor Midway, and even an All-Jeep Parade through downtown Toledo will keep you and your family entertained day and night.
Lions, tigers and bears—and art? The beauty of nature and art take center stage at the Wild About Art fair at the Toledo Zoo. This two-day festival takes place all over the zoo and features both local and regional artists who put various mediums on display for guests of all ages to enjoy. The events will also include live entertainment, interactive activities, and plenty of animals!
If you’re looking to get out of the house in August, make your way to the Maumee Summer Fair.

Plus, if you’re over 21, you’ll find local bands jamming throughout the night in the Beer Garden.
Free parking and admission set the stage for a weekend of fun shopping, spectacular dining, and endless entertainment in Perrysburg. The children’s activity area has fun for the whole family and the artwork includes ceramics, jewelry, paintings, glass, photography, and more.
While weekend festivals are spectacular, Toledo has plenty of places open to its residents during the week that offer incredible experiences. We recommend taking a day trip to the Toledo Zoo & Aquarium to discover over 4,700 species of animals. Stop by the Imagination Station to explore a kid-centric science center to defy gravity and conduct experiments. Maumee Bay State Park has over 1,336 acres of nature along Lake Erie, and the Valentine Theatre for performing arts offers productions for all ages.
We hope to see you there! Have a safe, fun, wonderful summer!
