What are the best events things going on in Toledo this weekend?

We are facing another hot summer weekend. Read on to see how you can spend it while on the Go 419.

TOLEDO, Ohio – It’s another hot summer weekend in July, so let’s get out there and check out 419. There are so many ways to get out and ride the Go 419 and I have a few ideas below.


Family center in motion | Toledo Art Museum | 11 clock

Get the kids out for a couple of hours and take them to the art museum and experience it like never before. You can visit the family center’s pop-up tent to collect materials for a simple, self-directed project that you as a family can complete together.

If you can’t make it on Thursday, you can get out this Saturday too. Haven’t you got enough this weekend? They will be hosting this family friendly event every Thursday and Saturday through the end of July.


Afternoon tea at the Hotel Lakeside | Lakeshore | 2 p.m. – 3 p.m.

Does afternoon tea sound like a perfect start to the weekend? The Hotel Lakeside offers two separate sitting times for the right tea on Fridays through September.

During the tea you will be served a hot pot of your choice, delicious scones and three levels of hearty appetizers and delicious tea desserts

Adult tea is $ 22 and includes nine different foods for each person, while petite tea is $ 10 and includes a warm scone, petite peanut butter & jelly sandwich, and a selection of tea desserts.

Tea has two different serving times, 2 p.m. and 3:15 p.m. and you can call (419) 798-4461 ext. 257 to make reservations.

Yoga on the farm | HEIGHTS | 6.30 p.m. – 7.30 p.m.

Friday evening you can experience a little nature and relax with yoga. HOOVES is a non-profit providing veteran equine therapy and is the perfect place for evening yoga.

Yoga is $ 12 and $ 10 for veterans. Packages are also available.

Chalk installation | Toledo Art Museum | 9 a.m. – 5 p.m.

We’ve all seen incredible chalk art on social media and on Saturday at TMA you can experience it in real life. Artist David Zinn will come down from Ann Arbor and create custom chalk drawings throughout the Welles Sculpture Garden.

Visitors can observe and explore his work across the campus and have the opportunity to make their own artwork with chalk available in the family center en route.
