Upcoming Festival Weekend: November 11-14, 2021

Holiday Craft Shows Galore with more Festivals down South.

In the Southern States, the festivals are continuing with all sorts of Greek, Art, Beer/Wine, Medieval/Renaissance and Seafood fests in Florida, Beer/Wine, BBQ and Holiday festivals in Georgia, and Holiday Light and Christmas Market festivals in Tennessee.

Meanwhile, more Tree and Light Festivals are going on in such states as Illinois, Indiana, Kentucky, Michigan, Pennsylvania and West Virginia.

For Ohio, it’s all about Craft Shows. Tons of Craft Shows!

There are some Ohio festivals going on as well, including the Industrial Strength Bluegrass Festival (formerly the Southern Ohio Indoor Music Festival) in Wilmington, the Olentangy Winterfest in Powell, the Cheese and Wine Fest in Cleveland and Christmas in the Village in Powhatan Point, but the majority of events are either Bazaars, Craft Shows or Holiday Markets – and there’s a lot of them this weekend. Therefore, you’re going to want to look to the map to see what’s going on around you (keeping in mind that more than one event may occur in the same city).

Also, if you haven’t already been listening to holiday music on your satellite radio, some of these events may get you in the mood. Just a warning.

Here are some of the festivals I would check out in the other states:

Florida (57 Fests): Cortez Stone Crab and Music Festival, Orlando Beer Festival

Georgia (20 Fests): Acworth Beer and Wine Fest, Stone Mountain Christmas

Illinois (2 Fests): Glow Turkey Music Festival

Indiana (4 Fests): Christmas in Pendleton, Festival of Trees (Indianapolis)

Kentucky (4 Fests): Lights Under Louisville, Festival of Lights (Grand Rivers)

Michigan (5 Fests): Flapjack and Flannel Festival (Traverse City)

New York (1 Fests): Syracuse Wine Festival

Pennsylvania (3 Fests): Christmas on Main (Volant)

Tennessee (12 Fests): Christmas Village Holiday Market (Cleveland), Shadrack’s Christmas Wonderland (Sevierville and Jackson)

West Virginia (4 Fests): Wagging Tails and Nitro Ales (Nitro)

Wisconsin (5 Fests): Christmas in the Village (Ripon)

Have a wonderful weekend, everyone!

Love, Peace and Funnel Cake Grease!
