Upcoming Festival Weekend: April 12-15, 2018

Happy Day, Festival Fans!

There’s a few more festivals this weekend in Ohio with the promise of twice as many festivals next weekend and over three times the weekend after.

The festival dawn is upon us!

And it’s not only happening in Ohio.  Festivals in all the surrounding states are growing in numbers.

I can’t tell you how excited I am. 🙂


This weekend in Ohio, all the festivals take place around the Columbus area with the Taste of Clintonville, the Ohioana Book Festival and Grove City’s Spring Craft Beer Fest. Craft shows and shopping expos, meanwhile, take place all around the state.

In other states, there are some interesting festivals going on, especially the food festivals in Michigan, Pennsylvania and West Virginia.  These festivals include…

Indiana:  Columbus Pride Festival

Kentucky: Spring Fling Art Festival (Lawrenceburg), Fleur de Flea Early Spring Vintage Urban Market (Louisville)

Michigan: MoshFest (Chesterfield), Traverse City Chocolate Festival

Pennsylvania: Wine and Taco Fest (Pittsburgh), Chow and Browse Festival (Zelienople)

West Virginia: Chocolate Festival (Lewisburg), West Virginia Food Truck Festival (Hurricane)

Be sure to check out the lists below as well as the map to see if something is taking place near you.

More festivals next weekend, so be sure to look ahead at the Festival Schedule Pages.

Have a great and safe weekend, festival fans.

Love, Peace and Festival Grease!
