Upcoming Ohio Festival Weekend: September 7-10, 2023

Over 100 Festivals and Fairs this Mega Festival Weekend: Skunks, Deer, Hot Times, Sternwheels, Popcorn, Honey, Oktoberfests and more!

This is high festival season, Ohio.

This weekend and the next few weekends will be just popping with festivals.

And I may or may not be using this word because there are TWO Popcorn Festivals this weekend in Marion (Review) and Beavercreek (Review). I can be a little partial to puns.

In fact, there are a lot of fantastic festivals this weekend, including many that you may never even heard of, depending where you live.

Did you know, for example, that there was a Skunk Festival (Review) in North Ridgeville? How about a Whitetail Deer Festival (Review) in Rarden?

In any case, if you like critters, you should also consider Woofstock (Review) in Chagrin Falls. You don’t even need to have a dog.

If you love art, it’s a great weekend for you as there are plenty of great art festivals this weekend, including Cleveland’s Waterloo Art Fest (Review) in the Collinwood area, the Black Swamp Arts Festival (Review) in Bowling Green, the Art in Park Festival (Review) in Kent, the Port Middletown Arts Festival (Review) in Middletown, the Berea Arts Festival (Review), the Art and Artisans Festival (Review) in Bedford, the Vinoklet Art and Wine Festival in Cincinnati, the FestiFair Arts and Craft Festival in Marysville, and Art Fair in the Square in Oberlin.

Hungry, festival fans?

The Cultural Festivals are plentiful with Greek Festivals in Dayton (Review) and Toledo (Review), a Hungarian Festival (Review) in Hiram, an Italian Festa (Review) in Kettering, and German Oktoberfests in Kent, Columbus (Review), Berea (Review), Vandalia, and Springboro (Review).

But there are also many Food Festivals beyond the Popcorn Fests mentioned above, including festivals that celebrate Tomatoes (Review), Potatoes (Review), Honey (Review), Apples (Review), Corn (Review), Fish and Shrimp (Review), and Perch.

Buon Appetito!

And still there are many festivals to consider:

  • Hot Times in Columbus
  • Napoleon Fall Fest
  • Lakewood Community Festival (Review)
  • Ohio River Sternwheel Festival in Marietta (Review)
  • Thunder on the Strip in Geneva-on-the-Lake
  • Pioneer Days in Kalida

This is still not all of the festivals, Ohio, so go through the festival listings below and be sure to check out Festival Reviews and the Map.

And, if you’re near the State Line or plan on traveling out of Ohio this weekend, then you can always check out this week’s post at my sister site Festival Guides and Reviews https://festivalguidesandreviews.com/festival-weekend-091023

Have a wonderful weekend, Ohio!

Until next week…

Love, Peace and Festival Grease!
