3 Things Poppin' in Northeast Ohio: MetroHealth Freedom Fest, Cleveland Yoga Festival, Legacy Live

Get out and explore all that Northeast Ohio has to offer this weekend!

CLEVELAND — Have you lived in Northeast Ohio forever, or maybe you're new to the area? Whatever your story, the region has tons to offer when it comes to experiences and adventures.

However, at times it can be hard to find and narrow down the best ways to spend your time. That's where I come in.

Normally, I keep you up to date on the latest pop culture stories every day in "Pop Break" on "What's New" at 5 p.m., but now, with this new segment "3 Things Poppin' in Northeast Ohio," I'll be sharing with you my picks for trendy things to do on the weekends.

So without further delay, here's what I think you should check out this weekend, June 17-19!

Cleveland Yoga Festival

Up first, let's help you find your inner Zen at the Cleveland Yoga Fest. In its third year, the annual event is a day full of yoga, hiking, meditation, music, and the work of local artisans.

It all happens this Saturday at Edgewater park form 10 a.m.-3 p.m. Tickets start at $30.

Legacy Village Live

If you’re looking for a chance to enjoy live music, Legacy Live is back each and every Saturday at Legacy Village in Lyndhurst. This week's musical act is Tony Quarles and the Discovery Band.

The fun goes from 5-8 p.m. and it's free and open to the public. For more information, click here.

MetroHealth Freedom Fest

Last but not least, this weekend is also Juneteenth. The holiday celebrates the day the last enslaved Black People were freed in Texas in 1865.

The city of Cleveland is celebrating big with its annual Freedom Fest. Guests can enjoy community programming and education, spoken-word performances, interactive art demonstrations, food trucks, and a vendor village spotlighting local Black businesses. 

The fun is taking place on Saturday from noon-10 p.m. on Mall C in the heart of Downtown Cleveland. For more information, click here.
