Festival Weekend: May 4-7, 2017

*********************************************

Good Morning, Festival fans!

Festivals are steadily increasing in numbers and I’m getting a good handle on date confirmations for 2017.

That being said, I thought it would be a good time to bring back the Ohio Festival Schedule page series based on smaller areas of Ohio – Northwest, Northeast, Southwest, Southeast and the Columbus area.

These smaller festival schedules will help those who may be overwhelmed by all the festivals on the main page.  Also, it may help festival goers realize that unfamiliar festivals and cities are closer that they originally thought.

Right now, these festival pages only run through July, but I should be adding the rest soon.  Please keep in mind that there may be errors (putting a festival on the wrong page), so it’s always a good idea to check the main Schedule Page for the full list.

 

This weekend, there are some pretty good festivals going on this weekend in both Ohio and beyond.

Some personal recommendations include the Dandelion May Festival at the Breitenbach Wine Cellars in Dover and both of Worthington’s Green on the Green and the Plant FestivalCincy Cinco (Cincinnati) and the Central Ohio Folk Festival (Galloway) look good, as does the Tequila Fest Cleveland.

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

Indiana: Morel Mushroom Festival (Nashville), 500 Festival (Indianapolis)

Kentucky: Kentucky Derby Festival (Louisville)

Michigan: Tulip Time Festival (Holland)

Pennsylvania: Mars New Year (Mars)

West Virginia: Beltaine in the Forest (Charleston)

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!

Kristian
