RAVENNA -- More than 40 artists of all ages and an addition of offerings from area wineries are some of the changes coming to the second annual Art on Main festival on June 24 in Ravenna.
The festival takes place from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. in downtown Ravenna. Main Street will be closed between Meridian and Prospect streets.
Justin Barber, a member of the Ravenna Creates committee, said local artists, including children at four area school districts and adults from as far away as California, will display and sell paintings, photography, pottery, woodwork, metal work, jewelry and more.
Student artists are from of Ravenna, James A. Garfield and Windham school districts, plus Kent's Walls and Davey elementary schools.
New to the event are area wineries, allowing visitors to sample wine as they visit the festival. The wineries include Cana Valley in Atwater, Maize Valley near Hartville, and Mastropeitro in Berlin Center.
Ravenna's newly formed Main Street group will offer walking tours of the downtown that will kick off during Art on Main. The first tour, titled "The Riddles and Ravenna," will feature a walking loop of all 14 Riddle blocks and factories.
Jack Schafer, a local historian and member of the Main Street board of directors, will lead the tours, which will take place at 2 p.m. with participants gathering at the Ravenna flagpole.
