Festival Weekend: April 27-30, 2017

Good Morning, Festival fans!

First of all, a big CONGRATS to last week’s two Bumper Sticker winners.

Each week, I’ll be giving away bumper stickers to two randomly selected people who share this post on Facebook AND let me know via a comment under that post (to find the Ohio Festivals Facebook page, go HERE).

Best of luck to all you future winners!

 

Now, let’s talk festivals…

There is a lot more going on this weekend and some of the festivals are really not-to-miss!

In Ohio, festivals offer plenty of art, beer, wine and food tastings while some highly recommended festivals include the Viking Festival (Ashville), the Ramp Up Peninsula Festival (possibly not a first-date fest unless you both eat ramps), and the Geauga County Maple Festival (Chardon).  Other Ohio events may cater to those who are into tattoos, ceramics, reptiles, guns, crafts and gluten-free food.  Check out the two Ohio listings below.

Meanwhile, in other states, here are some festivals that seem particularly interesting to me…

Indiana: Mansfield Village Mushroom Festival

Kentucky: Spark Versailles, Mountain Mushroom Festival (Irvine)

Michigan: Freeland Walleye Festival, Traverse City Chocolate Festival, Bringin’ Back the 80s Festival (Frankenmuth)

Pennsylvania: Brewski Festival (Seven Springs)

West Virginia: Ramps and Rail Festival (Elkins)

Please go through the listings below and check the map to see where the festival cities are located.  If you continue to scroll below the map, you will find links for the master festival listings of each state.

Until next weekend, have a great weekend, everyone!

Love, Peace and Festival Grease!
