Dear Neighbors & Friends,

Thank you for your past involvement with Square Fest. We encourage your continued support, sponsorship, and patronage with upcoming events including:

Summit Stagefest to be held June 3 in Highland Square

Open Streets on June 25 in South Akron

 Porch Rokr to be held August 19

Highland Square PorchRokr Festival

Highland Square neighborhood, and Akron Pride scheduled for August 26 www.


We look forward to an exciting summer filled with events that tie our communities together.

Showcasing local talent is a huge part of Square Fest. Check back soon for our stage lineups!

A wide variety of visual artists will have their work on display during the show. We are currently accepting artist applications.

Kids can let their artistic side loose with hands on projects, fun games, and entertainment in the Kids Tent.

Generous sponsors help make the festival happen. Please support the local businesses and organizations that support Square Fest.
