Now Accepting Sponsors for Summerfest 2017

Summerfest LogoThis year Fairview Park will celebrate the 25th anniversary of Fairview Park Summerfest from Thursday, July 6 to Sunday, July 9, 2017. This multi-day, fun-filled weekend was initiated decades ago to provide an opportunity for churches, schools, clubs, and organizations to introduce themselves to the community and to raise funds for their individual projects. The festival has grown over the years to include an opportunity for local and regional businesses to reach the community, and has added features such as the parade, carnival rides, live entertainment, pooch parade, car show, fireworks display, and more!

Fairview Park Summerfest is funded in part through local and regional business sponsorships. Thanks to the backing of our sponsors and supporters, Summerfest has grown in both attendance and the quantity of activities, leading to recent recognition as one of the largest festivals in Cuyahoga County.

As the momentum continues to build around our festival, the Summerfest Committee invites you to be a part of Summerfest 2017.

Thank You to Our 2016 Summerfest Sponsors

The Summerfest Committee and the Fairview Park Municipal Foundation would like to recognize and thank our 32 generous sponsors listed below. Without their support, Summerfest 2016 would not have been the success it was.

Due to an unfortunate oversight, Buffalo Wild Wings at Westgate Shopping Center was left off our Summerfest promotional materials. Buffalo Wild Wings is a wonderful community partner, one that has given much to a variety of groups and institutions in Fairview Park. We apologize for this error.
