Festival Weekend: May 11-14, 2017

Good Morning, Festival fans!

It’s happening, Ohio!

There are 15 festivals going on around the state this weekend and there will be over 40 next weekend!

Festival season is practically upon us!

So get out there and explore festivals that celebrate the Irish culture (Cleveland and Norton), Asian cultures (Cincinnati), the Appalachian culture (Cincinnati), beer (Newark and Columbus), food trucks (Huber Heights) AND…

…for you more adventurous types..

…maybe a festival about animal testicles?

This Friday and Saturday, there’s a rather interesting festival in Tiro (Northwest Ohio), where freshly detached animal parts are cleaned, peeled, sliced and fried for your pleasure as you listen to music, drink beer and just have yourself a good ole time.

Check out my review below and plan on making a road trip this weekend.

 

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

Indiana: Hartford City Civil War Days, Taste of Italy Italian Street Festival (Richmond)

Kentucky: International Bar-B-Q Festival (Owensboro), Paris Crawfish Festival

Michigan: Mesick Mushroom Festival, Buccaneer Bash (Augusta)

Pennsylvania: The Greek Food Festival at Saint Nicholas (Pittsburgh)

West Virginia: St. Albans Founders Day, West Virginia Strawberry Festival (Buckhannon)

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!
