Momentum 3-day music and art festival comes to downtown Toledo

TOLEDO, OH (WTOL) - Looking for a way to support the arts? Well, Momentum Toledo is a great way to do just that this weekend.

Momentum is a free three-day music and art festival in Downtown Toledo right along the riverfront and runs from September 13-15.

The festival opens on Thursday with the debut of multiple public arts projects from international, regional, and local artists.

These displays include Parer Studio's "Fantastic Planet", Pneauhouse "Compound Camera" and five newly commissioned INTER/ACTIVE artworks.

And in the Glass City, an arts festival wouldn't be complete without a glass exhibition!

Glass artists and designers will create drinkware or glass works that draws inspiration from functional vessels which will be judged by recognized experts.

This exhibition will be open to the public until September 20, and closes with an art auction during the September Art Loop.

If music is more your thing, there is plenty for you to do as well.

Concerts will be happening throughout the weekend and will feature groups like Orquesta Akokán, a big band collective of the finest Cuban musicians, The Toledo Symphony and many more.

If the music makes you want to move, there is something for that too. Michal T. Promotions is providing a free community salsa lesson on Friday.

There are even more exciting exhibits, shows and events that will be featured at the fest that are fun and exciting for people of all ages and interests.

A complete schedule is listed on the Momentum Toledo website.

Want to get involved? The festival is also looking for volunteers!

They have shifts available on Thursday evening, Friday evening, and all day Saturday.

Commemorative t-shirts will be provided.
