SUmmer Hookah

SUMMER HOOKAH 2014 - July 25 - 27

The Bernie Worrell Orchestra

True funkateers know the history. From the fat Minimoog bass lines of “Flash Light” and “One Nation Under A Groove” to the percussive piano runs of “Chocolate City” and “Give Up the Funk,” Bernie Worrell is synonymous with the legacy of Parliament-Funkadelic; in fact, he’s one of the originators of the psychedelic funk sound.


EST FEST - July 31st - August 3rd, 2014

Lace up, people! The EST Fest is coming back to the Quarry! Last year's Inaugural EST was the event of the summer! More than 3,000 Machine Gun Kelly fans from all over the world came to the first EST Fest ever! Not only did it go off without a hitch, but MGK showed endless appreciation to the Quarry & to Cleveland, as the area where he grew up.

We expect an even BIGGER show here in 2014!... LINEUP: TBA...

What is overflow and is there an extra charge?
Nelson Ledges Quarry Park has a capacity limit that is set by both the park and zoning.  Our neighbors therefore offer their land for overflow camping during the largest of shows, and they charge a minimal fee per car ususally $10.00.  Without them we’d have to sometimes turn people away at the gate.  Being just across the street, you still feel as if your part of the weekend, and you’re free to come and go as you please, provided you have your bracelet.

Ages 4-14 are just $10 Ages 0-3 are always FREE
