Good Morning, Festival fans!

It has finally happened!

We are officially into FESTIVAL SEASON!

This weekend, there are over 40 Festivals in Ohio and over 100 when you include Ohio’s neighbors!

Some not-to-miss festivals in Ohio this weekend include the Cleveland Asian Festival, the Delaware Arts Festival, Big Brews and Blues (Dayton), and the Downtown Willoughby Rib Burn Off.  Plus there are many church festivals, spring fests, wine fests and even a Psychic and Paranormal Fair in Lorain this weekend at the hospital where I was born (I’m really intrigued by that one).

Please use the map below to see what’s going on around you and be sure to check out the festival reviews in case something sparks your interest.

 

Also take note of some of the cool festivals going on out of the state, including…

Indiana: Broad Ripple Art Fair (Indianapolis), Mayberry in the Midwest Festival (Danville)

Kentucky: Old Louisville Springfest

Michigan: Empire Asparagus Festival, St. Stephen’s Spring Polish Festival (New Boston)

Pennsylvania: Pennsylvania Polka Festival (Monroeville)

West Virginia: 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!
