Join us for the 24th Annual Mozart Festival and Open House in honor of Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart’s 263rd Birthday!
Mozart’s annual birthday celebration is our way to say ‘Thank You!’ to our loyal customers. Celebrate with live music throughout the day, delicious pastry samples handcrafted by our talented chefs, a magnificent piano-shaped birthday cake, ‘Little Mozart,’ and our very special Chief Guest.
Continuing our tradition of showcasing local nonprofits working to make a positive impact in the city, we are excited to introduce longtime Clintonville resident Duane Casares, LISW-S, CEO of Directions for Youth & Families , as Chief Guest for this year’s celebration.
Directions for Youth & Families has grown to be one of the leading mental and behavioral health providers to Central Ohio youth and their families. The agency was recognized as the 2017 United Way Champion of Children. Nationally, Duane has been a leader in advancing trauma-informed care. He has spoken at the White House and for many other organizations about trauma-informed care and his agency’s outreach model. Duane also gives back to the community through his service with Maple Grove United Methodist Church, as well as several local and national organizations.
Festivities will take place from Noon to 8pm. Our main event kicks off at 5pm as Chief Guest Duane Casares shares a few words about Directions for Youth and Families. Enjoy a brief performance by talented ‘Little Mozart’ William Messner, and enjoy a slice of W. A. Mozart’s piano-shaped birthday cake. We can’t wait to celebrate with you!
