Anyone who has known Stuart for any length of time knows that he enjoys going to technology and arts events. IngenuityFest is his favorite event of the year. Most years that Stuart has been able to attend, he has gone all three days -- he tries to live the event, and drink in all that it has to offer. See our blog post from 2012: IngenuityFest:Festival of Art & Technology

Julie, Kevin, and Stuart attended much of the weekend's activities, but found that there was more to do than anyone can fit in one weekend. We recommend that you take a look at the links in the tweets, since they will lead you to more information about the participants. You can also see the full official program from the weekend by selecting this link.

Ingenuity Is Now Year-Round

With all the new Ingenuity Cleveland ( - @Ingenuityfest) events, IngenuityFest is still Stuart's favorite. In 2013, IngenuityFest took place at the Port of Cleveland ​for the second consecutive year. It more than lived up to our expectations.
