Festival Weekend: August 10-13, 2017

Good Morning, Festival fans!

There are nearly 60 festivals in Ohio, 40 in Michigan and more in the other neighboring states.

Some not-to-miss festivals this weekend include Cleveland’s Feast of the Assumption with it’s large crowds, beautiful people and delicious stainable foods (sauces, cheeses and wine – Oh My!), the National Hamburger Festival in Akron where you’ll find all sorts of tasty hamburg sandwiches, a bobbing for burgers (in ketchup) competition and plenty of entertainment, and the Germanfest Picnic in Dayton with all its pretzels, potato salad, Paulaner (beer) and Polka.

You can find reviews for all three of these fests.

Other fests to consider are the Italian-American Heritage Festival in Warren, the Cincy Blues Fest, EST Fest in Butler, Ohio Celtic Fest in Eastlake, Festival Latino in Columbus and the Obzinky Harvest Festival in Taborville/Chagrin Falls.

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

Indiana:Touch of Dutch (DeMotte), Mihsihkinaahkwa Pow Wow (Columbia City)
Kentucky: Great Inland Seafood Festival (Newport)
Michigan: Cheeseburger in Caseville, Caribbean Culture Festival (Detroit)
Pennsylvania: Festa Italiana di Vandergrift, Mt. Jewett Swedish Festival
West Virginia: Mahrajan Lebanese 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
