Over 80 Weekend Festivals and Events: May 6-9, 2021

I’m going to my first festival (in a while), festival fans!

I can’t believe I’m saying this, but I’m finally going to my first festival in over a year! Tomorrow, I’m going to check out the Northeast Ohio Pierogi Party and Polish Marketplace at the Cuyahoga Fairgrounds, getting my fill of pierogi and listening to lively tunes by the Polka Pirates. Hopefully, by Friday, I’ll even have a post about it for you so that you can check it out before attending it yourself on Friday, Saturday, or Sunday.

There are other Ohio festivals going on too, like the Wild Turkey Festival in McArthur, the Lilac Festival in Defiance, Maifest in Zoar, Springfest in Lebanon and the Findlay Craft Beer Fest and Wine Tasting (obviously, in Findlay). I’ll link some of my own experiences of these festivals below.

Plus there are even more festivals in the other states, such as…

Florida: Englwood Seafood and Music Festival, Cajun Fest (Jacksonville)

Georgia: Glennville Sweet Onion Festival, Dunwoody Art Festival

Illinois: American Farm Heritage Museum Spring Fling Festival (Greenville)

Indiana: 500 Festival Kickoff to May (Indianapolis), MayFest (Shipshewana)

Kentucky: International Bar-B-Q Festival (Owensboro)

Michigan: Mesick Mushroom Festival, Cupcake Festival (White Cloud)

New York: Rochester Lilac Festival

Pennsylvania: Scandia Chainsaw Carve (Russell)

Tennessee: Strawberry Festivals galore (Humboldt, Dayton, Portland), Irish Celebration (Erin)

West Virginia: Mullens Dogwood Festival

Wisconsin: Mosinee Community Days/Arts Festival (Mosinee)

****

On the website, I am almost done with updating the Festival Schedules. It will definitely be done before the weekend begins. So if you see any errors or know of confirmed dates that I don’t have listed, please let me know and I will take care of that right away.

Have a wonderful weekend, everyone! Maybe I’ll see you at the fairgrounds tomorrow!

Love, Peace and Funnel Cake Grease!
