Lakewood Summer Meltdown @ Downtown Lakewood

July 15, 2023 @ 4:00 pm - 10:00 pm

The biggest block party in the city is poised to heat up Lakewood this summer once again. The Lakewood Summer Meltdown, sponsored by Melt Bar and Grilled and presented by LakewoodAlive, returns to Downtown Lakewood for its 15th year on Saturday, July 15 from 4 to 10 p.m.

The Summer Meltdown represents one of the region’s most highly anticipated street parties.  A summertime celebration of our city’s vibrancy, this free community event draws nearly 15,000 attendees from across Northeast Ohio to the heart of Lakewood each July.

This fixture on our city’s summer calendar takes place on Detroit Avenue in Downtown Lakewood between Marlowe and Arthur Avenues.  The Summer Meltdown features a 5K race sponsored by Cleveland Clinic; 1 Mile Family Fun Run and Walk sponsored by Lakewood City Schools Community Recreation & Education Department, street festival, outdoor activities, games, food vendors, beer garden, live music and more.

Now is the time to secure your Meltdown 5k registration and start training! The price for the Meltdown 5K increases on the day of the event, so buy early and save. In the spirit of celebrating the 15th Summer Meltdown, the first 50 sign-ups will be discounted to $20 followed by a pre-sale rate of $30 and day-of $35. These races serve as a fundraiser for LakewoodAlive.

Families will love the street festival component, which features a variety of local small businesses and nonprofit organizations, many of which offer interactive opportunities.  Activities range from the “Water Moose” sprinkler park to fitness activities to a skate park.
