73rd annual One World Day on Sunday

One World Day is the official event of the Cleveland Cultural Gardens Federation since 1946. We had a great One World Day last year in 2017; we hope you enjoyed it as much as the other 25,000+ attendees. Let’s make it even better this year!

Since 1945, the Cleveland Cultural Gardens Federation has celebrated One World Day in the Gardens. This annual event reflects the theme of the Gardens: “Peace through Mutual Understanding.”

One World Day is the highlight of summer events in the Gardens and the occasion at which all the Gardens get together to celebrate as one. Events include a Parade of Flags, a naturalization ceremony, cultural performances, entertainment, gardens exhibitors, authentic diverse ethnic food, guided Lolly the Trolley Tours, children’s activities and more.

Sunday September 16 11AM - 6 PM. East to get there. Easy to park.

Free admission, free parking, free trolley tours, free entertainment!

Russian Cultural Garden Dedication

The Cleveland Russian Cultural Garden has been a work in progress since 2011 when Svetlana Stolyarova, Dr. Boris Vinogradsky and Sergio Lebid formed a committee to create a Russian garden in the Cleveland Cultural Gardens chain of gardens.

Their rationale was 3 key points

  1. We believe that Russian culture is one of the world's most diverse and interesting.
  2. Russian is the second largest European language
  3. Russian culture in America deserves to be explored, represented and promoted.

The formal dedication of the Russian Cultural Garden was held on Saturday September 8, 2018.
