Upcoming Ohio Festival Weekend: August 18-21, 2022

Sunbury Sizzles, Bucyrus Bratwurst, Columbus Food Truck Festival, Ethnic Festivals and more.

And still another big weekend with 13 county fairs, nearly 80 festivals and many of them are Ohio classics!

Some of the classics I’m referring to include the Columbus Food Truck Festival (Review) at its location in Hilliard, Sunbury Sizzle and Sounds (Review), the Bratwurst Festival (Review) in Bucyrus, the Blueberry Festival (Review) in Lexington, the Fairborn Sweet Corn Festival (Review), and Parade of the Hills in Nelsonville.

Plus there are all sorts of great cultural festivals like the Greek Festival (Review) in Cleveland Heights, the St. Mary Romanian Festival (Review) in Cleveland, the India Festival in Columbus, the St. Maron Food Festival (Review) in Independence, the African Village Arts Festival in Columbus and the Halupki Festival (Review) in Marblehead.

I have nearly 20 reviews for this weekend’s group of festivals, so take a gander there first. Then comb through the listings as there are still many festivals I haven’t had the opportunity to visit.

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

Northwest Ohio:
Toledo Pride is this weekend, as well as the Rossford Riverfest, the Bucyrus Bratwurst Festival, the Halupki Festival in Marblehead and Bremenfest in New Bremen.

Northeast Ohio:
All sorts of ethnic festivals, including the Brier Hill Italian Festival in Youngstown, the St. Mary Romanian Festival in Cleveland, the St. Maron Food Festival in Independence, the Sts. Peter and Paul Russian Food Festival (Review) in Lorain, the La Placita Latino Festival in Cleveland, the Akron Jewish Family Festival, and the Sts. Constantine and Helen Greek Festival in Cleveland Heights. There’s also a Pagan Pride Days (Review) in Bedford, the Highland Square PorchRokr Festival in Akron, and so much more!

Central Ohio:
The Columbus Food Truck Festival is the big one (now in Hilliard), but there are also a Pie Festival in Hebron, the Pataskala Street Fair and various Columbus festivals: India Festival, African Village Arts Festival, Weinland Park Community Festival, Columbus Taco and Margarita Festival, St. Andrew Parish Festival, and North Market Night Market (Review).

Southwest Ohio:
Festivals are staying near the Dayton and Cincinnati areas with many parish festivals (St. Bernadette, St. Mary, St. Elizabeth), the Dayton African American Cultural Festival, the Dayton Porchfest, the Whimmydiddle Music Festival in Hamilton and Hops in the Hangar in Middletown.

Southeast Ohio:
The big festival this weekend is probably The Parade of the Hills in Nelsonville, but there’s also the Appalachian Arts Fest in Corning and some fairs. Look to West Virginia this weekend as there are festivals in Wheeling, New Martinsville, Parkersburg and Hamlin.

****

This weekend looks wonderful, so take advantage of it (honestly, next weekend does as well and then September will be off the hook with festivals a-plenty).

I hope you find some great events this weekend. Please don’t forget about using the map and reviews.
