CLEVELAND HEIGHTS CELEBRATES ITS CENTENNIAL THROUGH 2021
Residents and visitors are encouraged to embrace the city’s offerings, culminating with its milestone birthday celebration in August

CLEVELAND HEIGHTS, OH, 4/14/2021 - The City of Cleveland Heights is excited to usher in its 100th year with a series of Centennial Celebration events. Throughout 2021, the city is inviting residents and visitors to explore the Heights’ multitude of amenities, from parks, outdoor dining, tours, arts, shopping, and more.

“For the last century, the City of Cleveland Heights has often been revered for its diversity among everything from its residents and restaurants to its arts and architecture,” said Council President Jason Stein. “We are proud to celebrate our rich history as we look to the next 100 years with a series of events throughout the year and invite the public to share their stories, as well.” 

The apex of Cleveland Heights Centennial Celebration will take place around Monday, August 9, the 100th anniversary of being an incorporated city. The milestone will be commemorated with a six-foot-tall greeting card signing and time capsule event. The city has also launched a microsite specifically for its centennial celebration at ClevelandHeights100.com.

The Cleveland Heights Centennial Celebration Events include: 

Mural Project: Cleveland Heights-based artists are invited to create an enduring mural in the Noble neighborhood. Proposals will be accepted beginning April 15. The selected artist will receive a $1,000 stipend for their work. A professional mural artist will execute the selected idea.

Virtual Tours: Explore Cleveland Heights from anywhere in the country with the city’s new interactive map at ClevelandHeights100.com

Walking Tours: Enjoy a walk through Coventry Village, Dugway Brook, Noble-Monticello, Cedar Fairmount with an audio walking tour curated by CSU Center for Public History + Digital Humanities.

Parks & Playgrounds: All parks will be open throughout the seasons, including: Barbara Boyd Park, Cain Park, Cumberland Park, Denison Park, Forest Hill Park, Kenilworth Park, and the Tot Lot at Turtle Park. 

Dining & Take-Out: Cleveland Heights is home to more than 50 independent restaurants spanning nearly every preference and palette, from vegan to Vietnamese, bakeries to barbecues, and eclectic to Ethiopian.

Curbside & Socially-Distanced Shopping: More than 500 independently-owned small businesses in 11 commercial districts make up the economy in the city.

Oral History: Listen to 42 Oral Histories about Cleveland Heights via Cleveland Voices through a Cuyahoga Arts & Culture-funded grant project sponsored by FutureHeights, Cleveland Heights Historical Society, and Cleveland Heights Landmark Commission.

Social Storytelling: Business owners, residents, and visitors are encouraged to share their Heights memories and milestones and be featured online.

Share the Pride: Spread the word about the Centennial and share your hometown (or transplant) pride with seals and graphics to display on your social media feeds.

Officially kicking off its centennial celebrations last fall, Cleveland Heights launched its All Are Welcome campaign throughout the city with window displays, bus wraps, videos, and discussions on social media, which will extend throughout the year. 
 
Over the middle and later part of the twentieth century, Cleveland Heights became home to a diverse mixture of immigrants and people of different ethnic backgrounds, all living in a community of unique, tree-lined streets, dotted with beautiful neighborhood parks and with homes and businesses with beautifully crafted architecture. Conceived in 1938, Cain Park is one of the first municipally owned and operated theaters in the country and stands as a living symbol of the City's commitment to nurturing quality programming in the arts for an area population that undeniably thrives on it. And the nationally renowned Cain Park Arts Festival has anchored the Park's ten-week performance season since 1977. Today, Cleveland Heights retains the charm and character established in the early part of the twentieth century, and the architecture very much stands as it did in those early days as apparent in the homes around the city. 

Established as a city in 1921, Cleveland Heights has become a desirable location to live and work in Cuyahoga County. Conveniently located only five minutes to University Circle, 10 minutes to the Cleveland Clinic and University Hospitals, and 15 minutes to Downtown Cleveland, the area is considered ‘home’ by nearly 50,000 residents and is one of the top 20 most populous cities in the state of Ohio.
