Please Note:

Due to current restrictions on large gatherings, the Ingenuity Family won’t meet in person for IngenuityFest 2020, originally planned for September 25-27. However, Ingenuity is pleased to partner with 48 Hour Virtual Music Fest CLE on that same weekend to bring you Virtually INGenious. On those days, we’ll welcome 48 bands, artists, performers, and creatives will join us on Facebook Live to bring live performances to your living room.

Stay tuned for a schedule, event link, and more exciting announcements.
