Huge Fall Festival Weekend: September 23-26, 2021

Over 300 Fall Festivals this weekend with another 100+ Festival Weekend in Ohio!

Well, festival fans, it’s another weekend filled with all sorts of fall festivals involving history, pumpkins, apples, beer and so much more. As long as it doesn’t rain, the weather should be perfect…cool and nice with changing leaves in some states and the smells of kettle korn and bbq all above. It all puts a smile on my face and some rumblings in my belly.

In Ohio, some festivals I can suggest include the Jackson Apple Festival, Lebanon’s Country Applefest, Prairie Days in Greenville, the Germantown Pretzel Festival, the Prairie Peddler Festival in Butler, the Barnesville Pumpkin Festival, the Ohio Celtic Festival in Mentor, and the Tipp City Mum Festival. Some other festivals that look good are Old Timers Days in Xenia, Celebrate Poland, Peninsula’s Music on the Porches, the Minerva Oktoberfest, Fall at the Round Barn in Lancaster, and Ohio Heritage Days Festival at Malabar Farms in Lucas.

I will actually be heading to Northwest Ohio this weekend to check out the Luckey Fall Festival, the Roche de Boeuf Festival in Waterville, Johnny Appleseed Days at Ghost Town in Findlay and the Findlay Oktoberfest.

Maybe I’ll see you there (it better not rain)!

I should mention that I can also recommend some upcoming festivals in other states, including Indiana’s New Earth Festival in Atlanta and the Carmel International Arts Festival, Pennsylvania’s McConnells Mill Heritage Festival in Portersville and Penn’s Colony Festival in Saxonburg. I had fun at them all and their reviews are listed below with the others.

Now here are more festivals I would check out in the other states:

Georgia (19 Fests): Duluth Fall Festival, Sweet Auburn Music Festival (Atlanta), Helen Oktoberfest

Illinois (43 Fests): Pluto Fest (Streator), Naperville Music Festival

Love, Peace and Funnel Cake Grease!
