Festival Weekend: June 8-11, 2017

Good Morning, Festival fans!

There is a TON of festivals this weekend with nearly 70 in Ohio and over 100 in the neighboring states.

With all of these festivals, it may be difficult to find what to do, so please take advantage of the map to see what’s near you, my reviews below so that you can get an idea of what the festival is like and even the other Ohio Festival Schedule pages where the festivals are broken into geographical sections (links provided below at the bottom of the post).

One festival I hope to check out this weekend is Parade the Circle in Cleveland’s University Circle.  There should be food and vendors to go along with the activities and vibrant parade that takes place.  If I’m lucky, maybe I can even make it out to Versailles for Poultry Days, but it may be a little distant for me this year.

Among festivals I’ve attended, I would definitely recommend the Yellow Springs Street Fair, the Columbus Arts Festival, the Taste of Lakewood and the Banana Split Festival (Wilmington).  If you love pork rinds, the Pork Rind Festival in Harrod makes both fresh pork rinds and cracklins fresh right on the festival grounds and they are delicious!

 

For festivals in neighboring states, I would check out…

Indiana: Jeffersonville Pride Festival, Holy Rosary Italian Street Festival (Indianapolis)

Kentucky: Fort Harrod Beef Festival (Harrodsburg), Beer Cheese Festival (Winchester)

Michigan: Mackinac Island Lilac Festival, Battle Creek Cereal Fest

Pennsylvania: Oil Region Indie Music Festival (Oil City)

West Virginia: FaerieFest (Paw Paw), Capitol City Biker Bash (Charleston)

 

Have a great weekend, everyone, and feel free to write to me if you have any questions.

Love, Peace and Festival Grease!

Kristian
