Cedar Valley Settlers Celebration & Music Festival
Long before this area was named Cleveland, North Olmsted or even Cleveland Metroparks, the early settlers were making Ohio their home. Relive the sights, hands-on activities, smells, tastes, and sweet sounds of great Americana music at Cleveland Metroparks annual, free fall event - Cedar Valley Settlers Celebration & Music Festival.
