Upcoming Weekend Festivals and Events: April 15-18, 2021

More updates coming, Festival Fans!

I’ve begun going through all the Schedule Pages once more, updating listings with either confirmations, new postponement dates or cancellation notes. You will see the word CANCELLATIONS popping up for events in May where I couldn’t find any information (if I don’t find 2021 updates for the upcoming month, I need to assume it’s not happening). But fortunately, after I do this, a handful of people reach out to let me know that events are still going on and I correct that right after.

With the first few sets of updates, I went through the festival listings month by month: all the April listings, then the May listings, etc. This time though, once I finish all the May listings, I think I’ll go through all of Ohio’s listings, followed by Florida, Georgia, etc. Hopefully, it’ll take me a week at the most. Fingers crossed.

****

This weekend, most states have something going on…

Ohio has some vendor shows, a Drive Thru Jewish Cultural Festival in Dayton and a Market Days Fest in Xenia.

Florida has over 10 festivals celebrating Art, Beer/Wine, German and Jewish Cultures and more.

Georgia is all about the Blues, BBQ and Storytelling.

Illinois has Wings and a German Market.

Indiana has a Block Party.

Kentucky has some Spring Flings.

Tennessee is offering a handful of festivals from Crawfish to Water Lanterns.

And Wisconsin, this weekend, is all about Maple.

There should even be more events next weekend.

Have a wonderful weekend, everyone! Talk to you again soon.

Love, Peace and Funnel Cake Grease!
