Upcoming Weekend Festivals and Events: February 24-28, 2021

Festivals in Florida, Georgia, Indiana, Ohio and Wisconsin!

What a complete change from last week in Ohio, when it was -2 outside. Now it’s 39, the snow is melting and the idea of an outdoor festival doesn’t seem that far away. This weather actually makes me start to think about the upcoming summer!

Meanwhile in Florida, it’s already summer, so the festivals are happening now. This weekend, Florida has at least a dozen festivals offering Greek food, strawberries, BBQ, Bourbon, Music on porches and a LOT of seafood.

I sort of wish I was in Florida this weekend (I love seafood).

Other states with festivals include Georgia (Antique Fest), Indiana (Maple Fests), Ohio (mostly shows and virtual festivals), and Wisconsin (all about Winter and Beer).

Sorry that I can’t offer too much more for Ohio and states up north this weekend. It’s usually a slow period anyways.

Gives us time to finish up our taxes.

News this week…

I don’t know if I’ve told you, but I have City Festival Pages for New York State if you’re interested – Buffalo Area Festivals and Rochester-Syracuse Area Festivals (this area also includes the Finger Lakes).

Keep in mind that the City Festival Pages are only meant to hold confirmed festivals. So, when festivals are confirmed on the state page, they are copied over. If they are later canceled, they are removed.

I have already begun my second run of going through all the unconfirmed festival dates, checking for cancellations, updates or postponements. Hopefully, I’ll be done in a week or two.

Have a great weekend, everyone! I hope you all are well!

Love, Peace and Funnel Cake Grease!
