Upcoming Festivals: January 2018

Happy 2018, Festival Fans!

I hope your New Year has started wonderfully!

Here, I have already started running through the festival schedules and confirming dates, updating website links and finding new festivals.  By the end of the week, I should be done with the first check, validating about 30% of all festivals for this year.

At the end of this month, I’ll begin Check #2 and eventually start emailing and calling festivals for more info.  It should be mostly updated by March/April.

 

Concerning these upcoming festival posts, the first 2-3 months are typically the lightest, so I thought I would just give you a post for all of January.  Below, you’ll see that I’ve listed the festivals by weekends to make it a little easier to understand.  I’ve also split the map into layers so that you can check only the weekends that you are interested in.  Otherwise, the map will list every weekend in January.

This month, you’ll notice that Ohio and Michigan both have plenty of winter and beer festivals going on.  Michigan, in particular, has a lot of winter festivals, so you really should check out some of the festivals happening up north (i.e. Yeti Fest and a Finnish American Mid-Winter Festival)!

But if the cold is too much for you, Ohio has many expos and shows to take advantage of so that you can stay warm and find new products and services concerning recreational sports, vehicles, travel, remodeling and more.

In short, you shouldn’t be bored 🙂

Have a great January and we’ll talk soon via reviews or more upcoming festival posts.

I hope you all have a fantastic 2018!

Love, Peace and Festive Festival Grease!

Kristian
