Toledo's Arts + Culture Festival

2024 Momentum Festival

Join us for the 2024 Momentum Festival on September 20, 21, and 22. This year's festival will be on N. Superior St., between Madison Ave. and Adams St., with both indoor and outdoor spaces for guests to explore. The goal is to utilize Toledo's fabric and architecture to create a sense of density, focus, and intimacy. This space provides an opportunity to utilize both streetscape and the first floor area of much of the block's building stock for activation by artists and creatives with the goal of creating accessible creative spaces.

The Local Artist Exhibition will provide venues for shared experience and connection for our local artists. Anchor Art - large scale, interactive, and spectacle artworks - will be placed throughout the event to encourage moments of discovery for attendees. The Momentum | Intersection glass exhibition will open Friday at the Toledo Museum of Art’s Glass Pavilion. An Artist Market will be set up Saturday & Sunday with work available for purchase from local sellers. Performances of all types and a Film Showcase will happen throughout the weekend. 

With many local performing, visual, and literary artists participating in this year's festival, we look forward to using this time to develop meaningful connections between creatives. Attendees will be able to explore some hidden gems in Downtown Toledo, see the innovative Momentum | Intersection exhibition, and experience all that the Toledo's creative community has to offer.

Something for Everyone

Started in 2017, Momentum is an annual festival that celebrates our vibrant community through arts and culture. Made possible by the generosity of local businesses and individual donors, this festival is a celebration of Toledo's talented visual, performing, and literary artists. Do as much or as little as you want–there is something that will spark a little creativity in everyone!

Celebrating our vibrant community through arts and culture.


The story of Momentum is a celebration of community and the arts in Toledo. Nothing is a truer embodiment of this story than the Momentum | Intersection Exhibition. Started in 2018, a year after the festival's inaugural season, Intersection is an exhibit of glass art like no other.

The 2024 Exhibition features work from Gabriel Peña, Matthew Hutchinson, and Davin Ebanks. Their work will be on display at the Toledo Museum of Art Glass Pavilion, 2444 Monroe St., from September 20 to October 26 with an artist reception on Friday, September 20.

This exhibit would not be possible without the ongoing partnership with NSG Pilkington and the Toledo Museum of Art.
