Cleveland Magazine Events

Throughout the year, Cleveland Magazine and Community Leader host some of the area’s best parties. These events celebrate and recognize the individuals, businesses and nonprofits that make our city great.

The health and safety of our event guests and participants is our highest priority. In light of recent news regarding public health, and considering the recommended strategies suggested by state and local authorities, we have cancelled our in-person events for the remainder of 2020. We look forward to celebrating the best of all things Cleveland with all of you in the new year.
