Upcoming Festival Weekend: March 8-11, 2018

How are things going, Festival Fans?

Both kids and grownups have a lot to enjoy this festival weekend.

For the kids, we have some Maple Syrup festivals in Bath, Lucas and Oxford.  There are also a Kids’ festival (Dublin), an Easter festival (Cincinnati) and a kid-friendly time slot at the Dublin Blarney Bash.

Adults, meanwhile, can find delight in quite a few alcohol-themed festivals, whether it be Ice Wine (Madison), International Wine (Cincinnati), Ale (Akron and Dayton), Beer (Medina), Distilled Alcohol (Westlake) or Irish Whiskey and Beer (at the previously mentioned Dublin Blarney Bash).

And there’s a BACONFEST (College Corner) with dishes that include grilled cheese with bacon to chocolate covered bacon.  Yum!

If you’re looking for more options, there are also some Craft Fairs, a Psychic Fair, various Expos and some interesting Out-of-State Festivals in Indiana (Fiber), Michigan (Beer, Vegan, Ukulele) and West Virginia (Music/Art).


I also want you to know that I’ve gone through all of the Festival Schedule pages another time and have updated many more festivals.  Most pages should be around 75% complete now, so you can plan your festivals even more confidence.

Please share the pages with your family and friends and let them know about all the festival options around them.

Also, if there’s a STATE that you would like added, please write in and let me know.

Thanks and have a great weekend, everyone!

Love, Peace and Festive Festival Grease!
