Your festival event guide for the Columbus, Ohio Area, including Delaware, Fairfield, Franklin, Licking, Madison, Pickaway and Union Counties.

Welcome to a comprehensive festival listing page and guide for Columbus, Ohio and the greater area. Once area festivals are confirmed on the main Ohio Festival Schedule, they are copied over to this page to make it easier to plan your weekend festival adventures.

While I am doing my best to update festival postponement dates, cancellations or note alternative versions, some festivals listed as going on may have been canceled or changed without my knowledge.

Always check festival information before attending as things are constantly changing and I know what it’s like to arrive at a festival location and find nothing.

Stay strong, be safe and let’s festival on together!
