Upcoming Ohio Fall Festival Weekend: October 12-15, 2023

85 Festivals and Fairs at the Algonquin Mill, Moonville Tunnel, Yellow Springs Street Fair, Bob Evans Farm. Plus Sauerkraut a-plenty!

Still tons of festivals, Ohio, even through numbers are just slightly lower than last week.

Here are some of the big/popular festivals this weekend:

  • Sauerkraut Festival in Waynesville (Review): 460 craft vendors over 25 states in downtown Waynesville means a big deal (and a huge crowd). The crafts are higher quality than most festivals and the interesting sauerkraut foods (ie fudge, pizza, pie) brings even more people to this interesting festival. Get there early if you can.
  • Yellow Springs Street Fair (Review): The Street Fair is the perfect time to visit Yellow Springs as you can take in all the vendors, food and entertainment while also checking out the quirky shops that Yellow Springs has to offer. Maybe you’ll even run into Dave Chappelle.
  • Oak Harbor Apple Festival (Review): All sorts of entertainment, vendors, food and apple products, not to mention rides and games.
  • Algonquin Mill Fall Festival in Carrollton (Review): The Algonquin Mill is pretty cool to check out, plus there are all sorts of demonstrations, activities, vendors and food. A great fall festival.
  • Enon Apple Butter Festival (Review): Many community organizations come together for this festival, which often makes things a lot better. All food must be cooked on site, all crafts are of handmade quality, there is plenty of live entertainment and this Enon Historical Society will be making apple butter right there for you to see and smell (maybe even taste).
  • Bob Evans Farm Festival in Rio Grande: Either dine at the first Bob Evans restaurant or enjoy treats like cider slushies and apple dumplings. Plus, there is live entertainment, artisan crafts from all over the country, demonstrations and other attractions and activities.

Plus here are some other festivals worth considering this weekend:

  • Chillicothe Halloween Festival: This is one festival I’d love to get to – Halloween vendors, food and live entertainment. There are even coffin races and a ghost walk.
  • Midnight at Moonville Festival in McArthur: Another festival I’d love to get to as it takes place at the famous (and spooky) Moonville Tunnel. There are two parking areas where you will be shuttled in so that you can take part in wagon rides and paranormal investigations. There will also be food, vendors and live entertainment.
  • Operation Pumpkin in Hamilton: Over 100 artisan and food vendors, giant pumpkins, live music, rides, kids’ area and more.
  • Ashtabula County Covered Bridge Festival in Jefferson: Held at the Ashtabula County Fairgrounds, there will be all your usual festival elements (food, crafts, entertainment, parade), but there will be special things going on at various covered bridges in the county as well. You can check out the website at https://coveredbridgefestival.org/festival to see the listings of each bridge.
  • Old-Fashioned Christmas in the Woods in Columbiana: If you like the Shaker Woods Festival, you can return for a Christmas themed version. This will return next weekend as well.

And there are many more festivals worth noting, so be sure to take your time as you go through the listing below.

And don’t forget to consult the map and the Festival Reviews.

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-101523

Have a wonderful weekend, Ohio!

Until next week…

Love, Peace and Festival Grease!
