Centennial Saturday

We are Toledo. We are 100.

As part of our 100th anniversary at OLPH, we are celebrating our roots in Toledo. We are part of the community in Toledo and the Toledo community is also part of us. For that reason, we proudly present:

We are very PROUD to have Arctic Clam representing Toledo for the evening segment of our Centennial Saturday celebration!

Throughout the weekend we will be serving hot, fresh Marco’s Pizza in the large red and white tent. The very first Marco’s store was opened in Oregon, Ohio by Italian immigrant Pasquale “Pat” Giammarco in 1978. Today, Marco’s Pizza’s international headquarters are located in Toledo and there are more than 800 franchised Marco’s Pizza locations in 34 U.S. states and Puerto Rico as well as the Bahamas, and India. We are proud to welcome Marco’s to our 100th anniversary celebration!



For thirty years Manos Greek Restaurant has been the “go to” restaurant for authentic Greek cuisine in Toledo, Ohio on Adams Street. Mano’s has also been a popular food item at the OLPH festival for many years. We are proud to welcome Mano’s back again for our 100th anniversary celebration! OPA!
