Festival Weekend: July 20-23, 2017

Good Morning, Festival fans!

There are nearly 50 festivals in Ohio, over 40 in Michigan and some more in the other neighboring states.

Among visited Ohio festivals, I would definitely check out the Headlands BeachFest in Mentor, St. Joseph’s Ox Roast Fair in Mantua (pronounced man-a-way), the Summer Moon Festival in Wapakoneta and the Cleveland Irish Cultural Festival at the Cuyahoga County Fairgrounds.  You can read the reviews below.

But, if given the chance, I would also visit such festivals as A Taste of Worthington Summer Food Festival, The Ohio Challenge in Middletown, the Columbus Jazz and Rib Fest, the Ukrainian Village Festival in Parma, and the 2X2 Hip-Hop Festival in Columbus.

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

Indiana: Pickle Festival (St. Joe) – I’ve actually been to this one.  Be sure to stop at Sechler’s for discounted delicious pickles!
Kentucky: Louisville Blues, Brews and BBQ Festival
Michigan: Magic Festival (Colon), St. Ignace Fish Feast
Pennsylvania: Yoga in the Wilds Festival (Ridgway)
West Virginia: Upper Ohio Valley Italian Heritage Festival (Wheeling)

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

Love, Peace and Festival Grease!

Kristian
