Big Love Festival 2018

Big Love Fest is a civically engaging arts festival that uses arts and culture to involve its participants in broader community building initiatives. Every aspect of this festival is interactive and participatory, from art installations, to vendor tables, to community-building workshops, to sustainability efforts, to cooking demos. What makes this festival unique is the hands-on atmosphere our community facilitates in creating a microcosm of Akron’s perfect city for a day.

Big Love Festival is a transformational placemaking festival for & by the people of Akron, aimed at highlighting artists, healing practitioners, organizations, musicians, & small businesses, all while fostering leadership & authentic collaboration as we seek to build agape & compassion.

We are currently looking for a location for next year’s Big Love Fest that will take place in winter 2018! Check back for updates!
