CLEVELAND, Ohio — Brite Winter is established to return to the West Bank of Cleveland’s Flats on Feb. 26, bringing 30 musical acts to different phases situated in the vicinity of the intersection of Main Avenue and Centre Avenue.

This year’s Brite Wintertime will follow the concept “Lucky 13,” in honor of the festival’s 13th birthday, said Emily Hornack, the govt director of Brite Winter season, in a press release.

“We’re checking out the themes of luck, gratitude, and fortune via our artwork installations. We also felt the bulk of the Brite Wintertime lineup must showcase talent with roots below in Cleveland and from close to Ohio,” Hornack reported in a press launch. “We’re particularly fortunate to complement that roster with the indie-rock band, Colony Home.”

Brite Winter season will also bring food items trucks, art shows and other interactive pursuits to the community, but this calendar year the festival has produced a number of changes for 2022.

To start with, $5 tickets will be expected to get into the competition (beforehand, Brite Winter season was free of charge and open up to the community).
