The Feast is Back!

It’s time for one of our favorite Cleveland festivals: The Feast of the Assumption. It begins on Aug. 15, with a solemn mass is celebrated at Holy Rosary Church at 10 a.m., followed by a procession down Mayfield Road honoring the Virgin Mary. What follows is one of the best parties in Cleveland. The stands which benefit the Church are located on the Holy Rosary grounds. Listen to live music, enjoy amusement rides and church activities and indulge in all your favorite Italian foods: spaghetti and meatballs, cavatelli, meatball and sausage subs, calzones, italian ice, and cannolis. Don’t miss the patio parties at Nido Italia and Trattoria on the Hill.

The carnival rides are located in the church parking lot located behind the church and include a ferris wheel, scrambler, magic carpet ride and various other children’s rides and games.

The festival concludes with an 8 pm Mass and a beautiful candlelit procession down Mayfield Road to honor the Virgin Mary. Fireworks will follow at approximately 10:00 p.m. in Tony Brush Park.
