Cleveland Brite Winter 2020! #Brite2020

Winter is about to get an upgrade because, on February 22, we're coming out to play!

A typical February evening on the West Bank of the Flats is pretty quiet. Not so during Brite Winter. The non-profit festival brings together people of all ages, incomes, and backgrounds, allowing them to discover new music and art and enjoy their community. Spanning eleven years, three locations, tens of thousands of guests, hundreds of bands and artists, and temperatures as low as 8 and as high as 69 degrees—Brite Winter has always been a festival created with the community, not just for it. As a community-funded and organized event, all of our official programming is free and open to the public and is made possible largely by the support of our attendees.

View the #Brite2020 lineup with 40+ bands and musical acts.

Winter in Cleveland -- a great time for an outdoor party in The Flats!

For the eleventh consecutive year, thanks to the Brite Winter Leadership Team and Sponsors, on Saturday, February 22, 2020, we joined tens of thousands of people laughing at the Cleveland cold by attending this annual outdoor celebration!

Here are our @sos_jr tweets and retweets with photos/videos from Brite Winter (@BriteWinter - #Brite2020), along with videos we found on YouTube. We share this to encourage you to attend future Brite Winter events, and to thank the people who make it possible. We are very lucky in Cleveland to have Brite Winter!

On this 11th anniversary, we want to thank the Brite Winter (@Britewinter) organizers for the many years of winter outdoor fun!!! We have very fond memories of attending our first Brite Winter when it was just a small event in 2011 (see old tweets) at Hart Crane Park, and have watched it grow into the huge event it is now! [Canalway Partners (@CanalwayCLE) has owned Hart Crane Park since 1994.]
