Welcome to ohiofestivals.net!

I am a one-man festival blogger who has done his best to show you all that Ohio has to offer by means of festivals.

Here, you can find various Schedule Pages for Ohio Festivals (over 1,300), Ohio Fairs/Shows and Festivals in the neighboring states of Indiana, Kentucky, Michigan, (Western) Pennsylvania and West Virginia.

There are also Festival Reviews for more than 400 different festivals.

You can find these reviews in various ways…

– the search tool bar (upper right field under “SEARCH BLOG ARCHIVES”)
– the category list under the tool bar
– the Ohio Festival Archive (listed by month or by city)
– the Festival Schedule (look for an “My Review” link next to the festival)

As I attend and review more festivals, I will continue to update and site.
