The first Rocky River Fall Arts Festival took place in 2009. Mayor Pam Bobst wanted to celebrate the talents of the Rocky River residents and highlight the merchants in the Old Detroit Shopping Area. The festival takes place on a beautiful late September morning and afternoon in the Old Detroit Shopping Area of Rocky River, Ohio.

The Rocky River Fall Arts festival is an event hosted by the Rocky River Parks and Recreation Foundation, a non-profit organization that administers this festival coordinating the efforts of numerous hard working volunteers in cooperation with the City of Rocky River. The financial support for the Rocky River Fall Arts Festival is raised primarily through the sponsorships, donations from local community merchants and entry fees.

The money raised from this festival goes directly back to the community for funding such things as playground equipment and other valued park improvements.
