Below you will find a list of events that ARTFUL is hosting, or promoting.
Get in the true spirit of the holiday season – join us for our annual Coventry PEACE Campus Lantern Festival on Saturday, Dec. 10th.
This is a FREE event and perfect for ALL AGES – we will be hosting afternoon workshops, an early evening lantern procession through the park & down Coventry Road, and then a holiday sing-along and snacks at the Coventry PEACE Building.
3:30 pm: FREE workshops – ALL ages
5:00 pm: Procession through the park & down Coventry Rd.
5:30 pm: Holiday sing-along & snacks back at the Coventry PEACE Building
Come early to make your own lantern… We will be hosting several workshops with artists from ARTFUL and Lake Erie Ink that will assist you in making a creative and beautiful lantern that you can carry in the procession and take home with you. Workshops begin at 3:30 pm.
Join in the holiday procession… featuring live drummers, dancers and larger than life “puppets”, we invite you to carry your lantern (either the one you made at our workshop, or a special one that you bring with you) as we make our way through the PEACE Park and the Coventry Village business district. The procession will wind its way back to the Coventry PEACE Building where we will end the evening with a holiday sing-along and cocoa. The procession will leave from the flagpole near the Coventry PEACE Building parking lot at 5:00 pm.
After the procession, come inside to warm up with some cocoa or cider and cookies, and you can join the Singers’ Club of Cleveland in a sing-along of holiday classics. Continue to work on your lanterns, or just sit and relax as we wind down this eventful day. The sing-along and snacks will begin at approximately 5:30 pm.
Our Lantern Festival is held in conjunction with the Coventry Village Holiday Festival. From 11 am – 6 pm, our friends and neighbors in the Coventry Village Business District will be hosting a plethora of events like the Jingle Bell Shop at the Grog shop featuring unique local artists and vendors, free pictures with Santa, live music, cookie decorating & more!

LANTERN WORKSHOPS ON DEC. 3rd
Share the warmth of the holiday season by making your own lantern! Whether you want to get ready for the Coventry PEACE Lantern Festival, or make a special gift for a loved one, or even just create something nice for yourself – these weekend workshops will do the trick.
From 2:30 to 5pm on Saturday December 3, ARTFUL artists Robin VanLear and Max Denney will offer simultaneous Lantern Making workshops. Geared to both individuals and families these workshops offer you the option to glaze a pre-made candlestick style ceramic lantern or use tissue paper, ribbons and bells to decorate a globe style paper lantern. Both artists will guide you in your creation.
Average time to make a lantern is 30 min to 1 hour. Participants may make one style lantern or both. Space is limited so reserve your space in advance so you don’t get shut out. Please pay in-person the day of the workshop by cash, check or Venmo.
