Excitement is mounting for The Greatest Weekend of Summer in Youngstown and the Mahoning Valley from Friday through next Sunday. And that superlative is no overstatement.
Framed by the 15th Annual Summer Festival of the Arts at and around Youngstown State University, the weekend offers a whirlwind of activities to satisfy a smorgasbord of tastes. In addition to the festival’s feast of visual and performing arts, other weekend events include the Youngstown Jazz Festival, The Tour of the Valley cycling races, the Smoky Hollow 5K Run, the St. Nicholas Greek Orthodox Church Summerfest and much more.
Patrons can enjoy traditional favorites such as the Festival of Nations and the Artists’ Marketplace and take part in new attractions, such as live demonstrations of 3-D printing.

With so much to do, see and experience, we are confident that the weekend will live up to its lofty label.
