Ohio Festival Weekend: January 4-7, 2024

A new year with some Shows, Festivals and Announcements!

Happy 2024, Festival Fans!

Festivals and Shows are starting off light with a Building and Renovation Show, an Ohio RV and Boat Show, a Pigeon Club Winter Show and a Winter Guitar Show.

There is also a continuation of some Holiday Light Shows from last year if you still have your tree up.

As you probably know, the first weekend is never a strong one in Ohio. Events will pick up in the winter, particularly with shows, and then Festivals will start to follow suit around March or so.

But, in case you are a subscriber who doesn’t care much about the winter events: you can write to me and ask to put your subscription on hold until late April. I’ve already gone through some inactive subscribers and put them on hold until then and I can add you to the list if you don’t want to get email notifications until then. Just let me know.

UPDATE: When you scroll down this post and gander at the map, you may notice that the covered areas of festivals has expanded a bit. This is because 7 new states have been added to the list of Festival Guides at Festival Guides and Reviews.

Here are all the state festival guides you can find at the sister site:

Alabama | Arkansas | Delaware | Florida | Georgia
Illinois | Indiana | Iowa | Kentucky | Louisiana
Maryland | Michigan | Minnesota | Mississippi | Missouri
New Jersey | New York | North Carolina | Pennsylvania
South Carolina | Tennessee | Texas | Virginia
Washington, DC | West Virginia | Wisconsin


If you are going away this winter, maybe checking out Mardi Gras in Louisiana, going to see family/friends out of state, or traveling for work, don’t forget about all these helpful Festival Guides!

There are so many great festivals out there so don’t miss those opportunities.

In fact, if you are traveling out of Ohio THIS weekend, then be sure to look at this week’s post of my sister site – Festival Guides and Reviews – to see what’s going on beyond Ohio this weekend. You can find that post at – https://festivalguidesandreviews.com/festival-weekend-010724

This weekend, I will be finishing up with the state of New Jersey, which has more than 1200 festivals at this point (it may have between 1500-2000). Once that’s done, I’ll simply work on updating all the tentative/unconfirmed festivals for 2024.

Have a wonderful weekend.

Until next week…

Love, Peace and Festival Grease!
