Another Super Festival Weekend: September 16-19, 2021

Over 480 festivals this weekend with over 100 of those festivals in Ohio!

It’s another huge festival weekend (even more than last weekend) with plenty of not-to-miss events! The festival map is filled with pins and some festival cities are having more than one event. We are also in a period where I’ve been able to visit festival in other states as well – so be sure to see the over 40 festival reviews listed below with some for upcoming festivals in Indiana, Kentucky, Michigan and Pennsylvania.

In Ohio, this weekend, there are some great festivals I’ve attended in the past and definitely recommend. Some of these include the Ohio Pawpaw Festival in Albany, Cincinnati’s Oktoberfest Zinzinnati USA, the Tremont Arts and Cultural Festival in Cleveland, the Preble County Pork Festival in Eaton, Arts in the Alley in Grove City, the Flat Rock Creek Fall Festival in Paulding, the Hispanic Heritage Festival in Dayton, the Backwoods Fest in Thornville, and the Tiffin Seneca Heritage Festival in Tiffin.

There are also some festivals that look great of which I haven’t yet had the chance to attend, such as the Ohiolina Music Festival in Granville, MustardFEST in Springfield, the Vandalia Oktoberfest, Old Fashioned Canal Days in Delphos, and the Old Timers Day Festival in Peebles.

And, for those of you outside of Ohio or feel like taking a road trip, I really should mention some great out of state festivals I’ve attended like the Testicle Festival in Deerfield Michigan (just north of Toledo), Penn’s Colony Festival in Saxonburg PA and the Spoonbread Festival in Berea Kentucky (the Bourbon Festival is also going on this weekend in Bardstown, KY but the festival has made some changes this year which may limit participation).

Now here are more festivals I would check out in the other states:

Florida (9 Fests): Pirate and Caribbean Festival (Vero Beach), Brazilian Festival (Fort Lauderdale)

Georgia (28 Fests): Helen Oktoberfest, Oak Park Moonshine Festival (Lyons), Haralson County’s Fried Pie Festival (Buchanan)

Illinois (63 Fests): Palatine Oktoberfest, Dessert Fest Chicago

Indiana (56 Fests): Art Squared (Indianapolis), Moon and Stars Festival (Henryville)

Kentucky (37 Fests): Cow Days (Greensburg), Gaslight Festival (Jeffersontown)

Michigan (40 Fests): Pumpkin Festival (Caseville), 90’s Flannel Fest (Freeland)

New York (34 Fests): Cuba Garlic Festival, Meatball Street Brawl (Buffalo)

Pennsylvania (29 Fests): Erie’s Wild Rib Cook Off and Music Festival, Peanut Butter Festival (New Bethlehem)

Tennessee (17 Fests): Sorghum Festival (Johnson City), East Nashville Beer Festival (Nashville)

West Virginia (13 Fests): St. Albans Founders Day, Treasure Mountain Festival (Franklin)

Wisconsin (50 Fests): WI’S Best Bloody Mary Festival (Madison), Willy Street Fair (Madison)

All these festivals and more are listed below with a wonderful map to help you see where the festivals are happening.

Have a wonderful weekend, everyone!

Love, Peace and Funnel Cake Grease!
