Upcoming Weekend Festival: October 14-17, 2021

Apple Butter, Pumpkins, Halloween and Spooky Pooches: 275+ Festival Weekend

I’m sorry to say, Ohio, but this may be one of the last big festival weekends of the year. After this weekend, festival numbers drop, allowing for more craft and vendors show (usually without the entertainment and sometimes even the food), occasionally only picking up for some Holiday Festivals (especially the first weekend of December).

So definitely take advantage of this weekend, as there’s plenty to see and do with 70 Ohio festivals and events!

Some recommendations this weekend include the Apple Butter Stirrin’ Festival in Coshocton’s Roscoe Village, the Bradford Pumpkin Show, the Black Walnut Festival (Camden), the Fall Festival of Leaves (Bainbridge), the Donut and Beer Festival in Columbus, the second weekend of Christmas in the Woods in Columbiana and the Spooky Pooch Parade in Lakewood.

And there are many smaller festivals and shows scattered throughout the state, so please look at the map and see what is going on around you!

Here are festivals I would check out in the other states:

Florida (42 Fests): Tampa Taco Fest, Cedar Key Seafood Festival

Georgia (39 Fests): Gold Rush Days (Dahlonega), Chatsworth Black Bear Festival

Illinois (22 Fests): Evanston Fall Festival, Day of the Dead Festival (Homewood)

Indiana (23 Fests): Fort Vallonia Days (Vallonia), Pennville Pumpkin Festival

Kentucky (17 Fests): Mt. Sterling October Court Days, Bourbon County Secretariat Festival (Paris)

Michigan (6 Fests): Detroit Bourbon Festival, Sts. Peter and Paul Romanian Church Grape Festival (Dearborn Heights)

New York (7 Fests): Serling Fest (Binghamton)

Pennsylvania (11 Fests): Old Bedford Village Pumpkinfest (Bedford), Freeport Halloween Carnival

Tennessee (28 Fests): Lebanon Oktoberfest, Crossville Oktoberfest

West Virginia (7 Fests): Mountain State Apple Harvest Festival (Martinsburg), Black Walnut Festival (Spencer)

Wisconsin (12 Fests): Mishicot Pumpkinfest, Dairy State Cheese and Beer Festival (Kenosha)

Have a wonderful weekend, everyone!

Love, Peace and Funnel Cake Grease!
