Crosby Festival of the Arts (CFA) is a highly recognized fine art show. Since 1965, CFA has been held at Toledo Botanical Garden (formerly Crosby Gardens), set amidst the beauty of gardens and nature. Celebrating its 55th year, this festival is heralded as Ohio’s oldest outdoor juried art festival. As the only show of its size and caliber in our region, participating artists are received enthusiastically by 15,000 or more guests each year.
This 3-day art show not only features beautiful artwork, but great local food, drinks, live music and activities for children.
