Thank You Toledo

We are overwhelmed with pride in our city and gratitude for the many individuals and organizations who came together to make Momentum happen! We hope you were awed by world-class art, learned something new from a local maker, danced with friends, or contemplated new music, all while taking in the view of our waterfront and city skyline. We love the creativity in our community-thank you to all of the artists, makers, musicians, performers, food vendors and volunteers!
