Upcoming Ohio Festival Weekend: August 11-14, 2022

Feast of the Assumption, Germanfest Picnic, Akron Pickle Fest and 100 more events

It’s another weekend with over 100 festivals and events, including Feast of the Assumption in Cleveland’s Little Italy. This festival is like two festivals in one: the Holy Rosary Parish Festival off to the side of the church and the main Little Italy festival in front of it. You could argue that there are many mini festivals going on at each of the restaurants, as many have private spaces carved out with more food, wine and entertainment. It’s definitely a great people-watching festivals, but please don’t wear white with all that sauce and red wine. Check out my review HERE for more advice.

Other great festivals I can recommend include the Shaker Woods Festival (Review) in Columbiana for some great shopping in a woodsy setting, the Germanfest Picnic (Review) in Dayton for some delicious German food and entertainment, the Swanton Corn Festival (Review) near Toledo for a fun and memorable community festival, and the Italian-American Heritage Festival (Review) in Warren for Italian culture, music, games and more.

But there are plenty of other festivals this weekend that I have not attended, but would love visit one year. Some of those festivals include the All Balloon Fest in Marysville, Art on the Lawn in Yellow Springs, Oliver Hazard Day in Waterville, the Akron Pickle Fest, and the Festival of India in Sylvania.

There are also 15 county fairs going on this weekend, so check the map and see if there is one around you.

Now let’s take a closer look at what’s going on in each part of the state:

Northwest Ohio:
Between the Swanton Corn Festival, the Maumee Summer Fair, the Barrio Latino Art Festival in Toledo and the Festival of India in Sylvania, it looks like the Toledo area is the place to be. There’s also the Flag City BalloonFest in Findlay little further south.

Northeast Ohio:
This part of the state is just flooded with pins, as there are so many festivals going on. Along with the Feast of the Assumption in Cleveland, there is another Feast in Broadview Heights. Akron has a new festival called Pickle Fest and the North Ridgeville’s Corn Festival is celebrating its 47th go. And there’s a FunFest in Massillon, a Circle Festival in Tallmadge, a Brewfest in Lorain, a Props and Pistons Fest in Akron and, if you like the Twilight Zone, check out Last Stop Willoughby, named after the episode (I should also mention that Serling Fest is also going on this weekend in Binghamton, New York. You can find it on the New York Festival Guide).

Central Ohio:
Along with the church festivals going on, you can enjoy Festival Latino in Columbus, the Carroll Community Festival, the All Ohio Balloon Fest in Marysville and the Craft Distillers Festival in Grove City.

Southwest Ohio:
Dayton is hosting both the Germanfest Picnic and the Potatoes N’ Such Potato Festival. Kettering has Bacon Fest and Art on the Commons. There’s also BoomerFest in Centerville and plenty of parish festivals in the Cincinnati area.

Southeast Ohio:
There’s the Bowen House Art Festival in Logan, Rivers, Trails and Ales Festival in Marietta, Poobahfest in Corning and the Hamilton County Fair in Carthage.

Have a great weekend, everyone!
