So you just read MY favorite festivals yesterday (click HERE if you didn’t) and you may be wondering what your favorite festivals in 2018 have been.
Using Google Analytics, I’ve been able to compile a listing of your 10 Most Read Festival Reviews for 2018.
Usually, most reviews get more attention a year or more after they are written, but sometimes a current review can go a little viral and pick up a nice amount of view/clicks.
As I list the top ten reviews below, I’ll also show their 2017 ranking just to make it a little more interesting…
10 Most Read Festival Reviews for 2018
Here are the 10 most read festival reviews in 2018…
10.) Bay Village Bay Days (#9 Ranking in 2017)
Read Review at https://ohiofestivals.net/bay-days-bay-village/
Bay Days is Bay Village’s city festival/carnival with rides, games and food around the 4th of July Weekend.
9.) Ohio Wizard of Oz Festival – Macedonia (New to the Top 10)
Read Review at https://ohiofestivals.net/ohio-wizard-of-oz-festival/
My review was written during their first year in 2017 with nicely themed decorations and great costume participation from both vendors and festival attendees.
8.) Tiro Testicle Festival – Tiro (2013) (#2 Ranking in 2017)
Of course, people are going to be drawn to festivals themed after animal testicles. It’s unique, it’s different and it’s fun to freak out your mom by posting the link on her Facebook wall. While the placement fell a few spots, there’s good reason for this, which I’ll get into later.
7.) Pierogi Fest – North Royalton (#3 Ranking in 2017)

The Pierogi Fest fell a few spots, but it still brings in a lot of interest. Everyone loves pierogi, and the pierogi here are particularly good!
6.) St. Josaphat Ukrainian Festival – Parma (New to the Top 10)
Read Review at https://ohiofestivals.net/st-josaphat-ukrainian-festival/
With kids’ activities, ethnic music and so much delicious food (the dessert table was incredible), it’s easy to see how this review got a lot of attention. It is new to the list because it’s a newer review (2017).
5.) Firelands Labor Day Festival – New London (New to the Top 10)
This is a pretty big festival with rides, food and some great entertainment, including the demolition derby.
4.) Skunkfest – North Ridgeville (#5 Ranking in 2017)
Read Review at https://ohiofestivals.net/skunk-fest-north-ridgeville/
This unique festival climbed a spot from last year. Of the top 10, it’s nearly the oldest review I’ve written but its popularity is still going strong.
3.) Kent Potterfest – Kent (New to the Top 10)
Read Review at https://ohiofestivals.net/potterfest/
This review from 2017 is likely to stay in the top 10 for some time because people love Harry Potter. But who doesn’t? Wizards, witches, muggles and fun costumes. All these make for a great and interesting festival.
2.) Tiro Testicle Festival (2017) (#4 Ranking in 2017)
Read Review at https://ohiofestivals.net/testicle-festival-tiro/
This review is an updated 2017 version from my first experience in 2013. That’s likely why the older version has fallen a few spots while this version has climbed some spots.
And the most read festival review this year goes to…
1.) Testicle Festival – Deerfield, Michigan (#1 Ranking in 2017)
Testicle themed festivals are just hard to beat and this review has maintained its #1 position for another year in a row. If you’ve never gone, you should really consider it for 2019!
I hope you enjoyed reading the Top 10 of your Most Read Festival Reviews!
