Summertime is the perfect time to get out and attend special fairs, festivals and events in Cambridge/Guernsey County.

It just wouldn't be summer in Cambridge without the free Concerts in the Park series by the Cambridge City Band, the oldest community band (cr. 1841) in the State of Ohio.

The drama for the ages is presented every June through September on a spectacular 400-footpanoramic set replicating Old Jerusalem. The Living Word Outdoor Drama is the only live drama presentation of its kind in the state. For more than 40 years, the cast has presented the Life and Ministry of Christ.

The Cambridge City Park comes alive with the Salt Fork Festival the second weekend in August. More than 200 artists participate in this unique festival. Special features include craft classes, entertainment, fine arts and crafts, demonstrations, performing arts, showcase of Ohio foods, youth art display and much more.

Mark your calendar for the annual National Cambridge Glass Collectors Show & Sale each June. And the entire family will enjoy a day of fun during the annual National Road Riders Bike Show.

Visitors vote on their favorite bike, watch a Bike Rodeo, and enjoy live music and more!

Cambridge also plays host to one of the hottest Fourth of July events in Ohio! The annual “Boomarama” is not just about fireworks. It provides an opportunity for families to gather at the City Park and enjoy food provided by local vendors with a bevy of musical entertainment. Car shows, corn hole tournaments, and a fireworks extravaganza celebrate the nation's birthday.
