Upcoming Festival Weekend: October 12-15, 2017

Good morning, Festival Fans!

Just as a reminder, please take note there there is a holiday listing of festivals, fairs and shows called…

…the Ohio Fall into the Holidays List.

This listing merges all fairs, shows and festivals with themes that include the remaining seasons and holidays. For example, you will find pumpkin festivals, Halloween festivals, holiday craft shows, and Oktoberfests!

Just a nice way to get into the spirit of the seasons!

CLICK HERE TO VISIT THE LISTING

This weekend, festivals increase with nearly 60 in Ohio and 70 in the surrounding states.

As always, use the map below to know the cities where there are festivals and then find the festival in the Schedule Listing, keeping in mind a city may have more than one festival.

Some big recommendations of attended festivals include…

Sauerkraut Festival (Waynesville) – a huge shopping festival with many crazy sauerkraut foods (donuts, pizza, brownies, etc.)…

DeBord’s Halloween Festival (Akron) – plenty of kid friendly Halloween fun by day and some scarier stuff at night…

Algonquin Mill Fall Festival (Carrollton) – a great fall festival with demonstrations, food and shopping…

 Lakeside-Marblehead Lighthouse Festival – head to Lakeside for shopping, food and entertainment with more at the lighthouse…

…and the Yellow Springs Street Fair – a fun festival with plenty of vendors, entertainment and more in lovely Yellow Springs.

 

Concerning festivals I would like to visit this weekend, my top pics would be the Bob Evans Farm Festival in Rio Grande, the Bradford Pumpkin Show, Christmas in the Woods in Columbiana, Oxtoberfest in Burton, and the Ironton Heritage Festival (I’m curious about seeing Ironton).

And for out of state festivals this weekend, I would make some time for…

Indiana: Sleepy Hollow Fall Celebration (Vevay), Rising Sun Navy Bean Festival and Splash In
Kentucky: Newport Oktoberfest, Trigg County Country Ham Festival (Grayson)
Michigan: Fennville Goose Festival, Appleumpkin Festival (Tecumseh)
Pennsylvania: Fort Ligonier Days (Ligonier), Johnny Appleseed Festival (Sheffield)
West Virginia: Black Walnut Festival (Spencer), Taste of Our Towns (Lewisburg)

Have a great weekend, everyone, and feel free to write to me if you have any questions.

Love, Peace and Festival Grease!

Kristian
