Xtinguish the Past, Ignite the Future! Xtinguish Celebration is an immersion into the culture of the Cuyahoga River Watershed. We are working with over 300 organizations, municipalities, agencies, and corporate partners to highlight the unique nature of Northeast Ohio.

Being the regional commemoration of the 50th year of revitalization of our Cuyahoga River, bringing the entire watershed in solidarity around our shared waterway, this partnership has a unique opportunity to give voice to some that historically would not have been given that chance otherwise.

This is OUR conversation, YOUR chance to have your voice heard. Will you join us in celebrating our unique region?

Torch Fest

Torch Fest takes place from June 19th through June 22nd. Celebrating along the Cuyahoga River Water Trail. Join us in commemoration of the 50th anniversary of the famed 1969 Cuyahoga River Fire as our waterway comes together in solidarity around our shared waterway!
