It’s a match made in… Cleveland! When the Cleveland Cultural Gardens Federation wanted to have an extra special headliner to celebrate the Centennial Year of the Gardens at One World Day there was one name that jumped out – Michael Stanley.
Since 1945 the Cleveland Cultural Gardens Federation (CCGF) has celebrated One World Day exemplifying the theme of the Gardens: “Peace through Mutual Understanding.” Sunday August 28, 2016 will be the 71st annual One World Day held in the Cultural Gardens.
2016 is the Centennial year of the Cultural Gardens (the first Garden was established in 1916) and the CCGF has hosted a number of special centennial events. The celebration will culminate in One World Day on August 28 from 11AM – 7PM.
Though he has had regional and national success, Cleveland native Michael Stanley will always be associated with his hometown, and not just when performing his Top 40 hit “My Town”.
From the start of One World Day at 11 AM there will be dozens of ethnic and cultural performers on the main stage and also throughout the individual gardens. But at 6 PM the attention will be drawn to the KeyBank Centennial Main Stage where Michael Stanley & Friends will perform in an historic acoustic concert in the Cleveland Cultural Gardens. The concert, parking and all of One World Day are free to the public.
Michael Stanley’s honest, Midwestern rock & roll is custom made for Cleveland and will be a perfect fit for Cleveland’s unique treasure, the Cleveland Cultural Gardens. As Michael says, “Let’s get the show on the road.”
