Message from Mayor Kleem

Thank you to the many sponsors who made possible the Grindstone Festival and our many other community activities.

The Grindstone Festival is our signature event. It expands each year and attracts many residents and visitors to our City. 

Berea also offers many other family-friendly events – summer band concerts, outdoor movies, Community Garage Sale, the Harvest Festival and Jack Frost Festival & Light Up Berea Parade. These are staples on our schedule but we’ve added some new events, too. The latest was the Food Truck Tailgate at the Browns Training Facility on Lou Groza Boulevard. Plus we’ve restarted the Snores ‘n’ Smores family campout at Coe Lake.

All of these events would not have been possible without support from corporations, businesses, civic organizations and individuals. Donations range from $20 to thousands of dollars. We are extremely grateful for support at any level.

Next on the agenda is the Harvest Festival on Saturday, Oct. 15, which offers daytime activities including Treat-or-Treat in downtown Berea and nighttime fun at Jason Malone Park.

If you would like more information on sponsoring Berea festivals and events, please contact Megan Pochatek at (440) 274-5608 or
