Upcoming Ohio Fall Festival Weekend: September 28 – October 1, 2023

Fall Festivals a-plenty with Oktoberfests, Cultural Fests, Swiss Cheese, Mac and Cheese, Wings and more!

Fall fests are here, festival fans, and they’ll be around for a while.

As you look through the festival listings, you’ll notice Autumnal Festivals named as Pumpkin Festivals, Harvest Festivals, Oktoberfests, a Cider Fest, and all sorts of Farm or Orchard Fall/Harvest/Pumpkin Festivals.

Overall, there are nearly 80 festivals and fairs this weekend. Not as many as the last few weekends but still a pretty high amount of festivals.

Some festivals I can personally recommend include:

  • Ohio Swiss Festival in Sugarcreek (Review) – this Swiss village gets lively as the wine and cheese are all over. Plenty of sampling, plus music and rides. There’s a crazy mouse game you can see in the review. I hope they still have it.
  • International Festival of the Islamic Center of Greater Toledo in Perrysburg (Review): this long titled festival is not only an open house to those interested/curious in Islam, but it’s a smorgasbord of various cuisines, each of them wonderfully delicious. There are also a kids zone, pony rides and more.
  • Old Worthington Market Day (Review): Over 150 vendors featuring homemade arts and crafts, live music, plenty of food trucks, a Ninja Course, Touch a Truck and more.
  • Ohio Renaissance Festival in Waynesville (Review): the festival continues for another weekend with all sorts of stages with entertainment and shows, a ton of vendors, great food, games galore and so much more. You can easily spend the day here!

But there are so many festivals this weekend that I haven’t (yet) had the chance to visit:

  • Oktoberfests in Galion, Catawba Island, Struthers, Wooster, Cincinnati, Minster, Greenfield, Stockport, Loudonville, and Boardman
  • Cultural Festivals celebrating Germans, Latinos, Egyptians, Poles and more
  • Food Festivals: Mac and Cheese in Avon, Food Trucks in South Lebanon and Mount Vernon, Ribs in Defiance, Hot Wings in Grove City, and an Apple Fest in Marion
  • Fall Festivals: these are too numerous to mention. Any festival listing where you see Fall or Harvest or Heritage is pretty much a fall festival. Actually, just because of the season, I guess any festival now is a fall festival

Be sure to take your time when going through the lists because there is still a lot of them out there this weekend. And don’t forget to use the map and read the reviews of festivals you may be interested in.

Also, 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-100123

Have a wonderful weekend, Ohio!

Until next week…

Love, Peace and Festival Grease!
