Upcoming Festival Weekend: February 28 – March 3, 2019


Chase away the winter this weekend, Festival Fans!

If you are sick of the winter, you can head to Cleveland this weekend and join sheepkin-garmented masked creatures called Kurents who walk around with clubs and bells to chase the winter away. And, if that’s not inviting enough, know that there will be plenty of music, ethnic food and more during a festival called the Cleveland Kurentovanje Winter Festival.

But Kurents aren’t the only festival guests this weekend. Arnold Schwarzenegger will be returning to Columbus for the annual Arnold Sports Festival, which is something you could read about in my review HERE. It’s really impressive.

Also this weekend in Ohio, there are beer and wine fests, maple syrup festivals, a Japanese festival and a music festival.

Outside of Ohio, beer is popular in the other states while…

…Indiana has a Sandhill Crane Festival

…Kentucky has a Women’s Book Festival

…Tennessee has a Chuck Wagon Cookoff

…and West Virginia has Celtic festivals and a Swiss festival called Fasnacht, where they also scare winter away but with hand-made masks.

Hope you are able to go out and enjoy yourself this weekend, especially since it’s the last weekend before Lent. Fat Tuesday is coming up around the corner and so it’s easy to be a little indulgent.

Have a great weekend and be sure to tell your friends about all these great Festival Schedules.

Love, Peace and Funnel Cake Grease!
