The Cincinnati Rollergirls close their season with the third annual Crosstown Knockdown Saturday. The double-header opens with a mixed game featuring CRG’s Black Sheep team and the Battering Rams, Cincy’s men’s team. During the main event, CRG’s Violent Lambs face-off with the Black-n-Bluegrass Rollergirls’ Blackouts. CRG’s home rink is at the Cincinnati Gardens; with the arena for sale, it might be the crew’s last game there. Gates open at 5 p.m. and the first bout begins at 6 p.m. The game is also Fan Appreciation Night — the first 500 fans through the door will receive CGR cowbells and the girls will be handing out gifts to fans throughout the games.

Your Weekend To Do List: 6/1-6/3

Cincinnati’s annual seasonal art celebration, Summerfair, returns for the 45th year at Coney Island this weekend. The festival includes 300 crafters and fine artists from around town, the country and Canada as well as performers and food vendors. Peruse photography, glass and wood works, ceramics, fiber arts and more as you explore one of the longest running arts and crafts fairs in the nation. Admission is $10 (parking included). Summerfair runs, rain or shine, 2-8 p.m. Friday, 10 a.m.-8 p.m. Saturday and 10 a.m.-5 p.m. Sunday. Tonight at Coney’s Moonlite gardens, Cincy Chic presents the Little Black Dress party and fashion show. Summerfair’s artworks get a fierce makeover at this event, which also features drinks and dancing from 7-11 p.m. Tickets are $15. Freestyle rap battle-meets-Draw Something: that’s how Ghost Empire Collective describes its Art of War show tonight. In the largest GEC event yet, seven artists from the collective will compete in a live art tournament. An MC will randomly select a card with a word on it for each artist, who will have 10 minutes to draw their subject (none of the artists have any idea what mystery subjects appear on the cards). Once their time is up, the audience will vote via applause for their favorites. The fun will continue until one artist remains. The Art of War goes down at The Avenue Lounge in Covington. Admission is free; the show begins at 10 p.m. Bike month is over, y’all and there are some new two-wheelers in town. The inaugural Queen City Mods & Rockers Rally celebrates scooters (mods) and motorcyclists (rockers) with a group ride and celebration Saturday. The ride kicks off at noon at Fuel Coffee in the East End, where scooters and bikes will split up for two different scenic routes and eventually meet in Rabbit Hash, then back north to Hoffner Park in Northside around 3 p.m. The rally at the park (2-8 p.m.) will feature grub, live music, art, and lots of car-less fun. Heat things up with a retro fashion show and pinup girl contest, hosted by the Cincinnati Rollergirls. Afterwards, the group will migrate to The Comet from 9-11 p.m. Find registration, a full route and schedule here. You don’t have to brave the city’s core to have fun this weekend, though. St. James Orthodox Christian Church in Loveland presents its annual Mediterranean Food Festival through Sunday. Enjoy Middle Eastern music, belly dancers, rides and games for kids and more authentic food you than can throw a falafel at! Have your fill of kibbeh, grape leaves, shawarma, gyros and more, 5-11 p.m. Friday, 11 a.m.-11 p.m. Saturday and 1-10 p.m. Sunday.
