Festival Weekend: July 13-16, 2017

Good Morning, Festival fans!

There are over 50 festivals in Ohio and plenty more in neighboring states this weekend.

Among visited Ohio festivals, I would definitely check out the beautiful natural setting of Lilyfest in Rockbridge, the artistry of the Willoughby ArtsFest, the local vintages of the Toast of Ohio Wine Festival in Sandusky, and the ethnic delights of the Summit County Italian American Festival in Akron, the Serbian Festival in Parma, and Sacred Heart Festival (Las Fiestas Patronales) in Lorain.

But there are still plenty of other festivals I have not visited (but want to), including the Taste of Tremont in Cleveland, the Olde Canals Day Festival in Canal Fulton, the Great Lakes Medieval Faire and Marketplace in Rock Creek and the St. John Vianney Summer Festival in Mentor.

And if I was able to travel out of state this weekend, these are the festivals I would make some time for…

Indiana: Circus Festival (Peru), Tater Tots and Beer Festival (Indianapolis)
Kentucky: Forecastle Festival (Louisville), Minnie Adkins Day (Sandy Hook)
Michigan: Charlevoix Venetian Festival, Gaylord Alpenfest
Pennsylvania: Old Fashioned Day in the Park (Mercer)
West Virginia: Durbin Days Heritage Festival, Beverly Heritage Days

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

Love, Peace and Festival Grease!

Kristian
