Festival Weekend: June 15-18, 2017

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

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

Good Morning, Festival fans!

First off, I have some interesting news to share about the Ohio Festivals website.

I have recently added some new festival lists based on the type of festival.

The festival categories are as follows: Art, Beer/Wine, Cultural/Ethnic, Food, Music and Unique.

You can find this list in the top navigational bar under “FESTS BY CATEGORY” – or you can simply click the links I provided above.

I have also made some small changes to the menu in the navigational bar, so look around and let me know if you have any questions.

 

Now let’s talk about this upcoming weekend as I wish all you fathers and fathers-to-be a Happy Father’s Day!

Once again, there are over 70 festivals in Ohio this weekend, including such local favorites as the Avon Duct Tape Festival, the Vermilion Festival of the Fish, Steubenville’s Dean Martin Festival, Columbus’ Pride Festival and Canton’s Italian American Festival.

All of these festivals have reviews below so be sure to read them.

Other Ohio festivals worth checking out include the Washboard Music Festival in Logan, the Akron Canal Days and Duck Derby, and Boogie on the Bricks in Athens.

 

 

For festivals in neighboring states, I would check out…

Indiana: Turtle Days (Churubusco), Bean Blossom Bluegrass Festival

Kentucky: Cow Bell Days (Stanford), Mayberry Day (Owenton)

Michigan: Wizard of Oz Festival (Ionia), Buttermilk Jamboree (Delton)

Pennsylvania: Smoked Country Jam (Cross Fork)

West Virginia: Hatfield and McCoy Family Reunion (Matewan)

 

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

Love, Peace and Festival Grease!

Kristian
