our mission statement

celebrate | support | promote


The Galena SummerFest began in 2009 to honor the bicentennial of Galena, Ohio.  

The Greater Galena Civic Association asked the Village of Galena council members if they would join the GGCA and the community in celebrating their 200th anniversary with a MUSIC & ARTS FESTIVAL.

The first event in 2009 was a terrific success!  Folks from neighboring communities as well as all over Ohio attended.

In 2016, Galena Summerfest entertained  approximately 10,000 attendees with an expanded KidZone, over 70 arts, food, business & non profit vendors. 

The expanded festival is expected to draw a much larger group of patrons this year and offer greater exposure for our generous sponsors.
