Upcoming Festival Weekend: April 26-29, 2018

Hey there, Festival Fans!

With the recent flashes of warmer weather, I’m sure you’ve begun looking ahead at what festivals are coming.

But, if you haven’t, allow me to let you know that the higher numbers of weekend festivals…

…begins now.

From here on out, Ohio, as well as most of her neighboring states, will be offering you plenty of festivals every weekend through October (sometimes peaking to nearly 90 festivals in any one weekend).

So exciting!

And, please, if you share any of this excitement with me, please share the Festival Schedule Pages with festival-loving friends and family members.  Help others know about these resources so they can get out there and explore.  It also helps lesser known festivals find out about the website and contact me to be listed.

 

Concerning this weekend’s festivals, there really are some good ones.

Food loving Ohioans can enjoy a Chilifest in Lyndhurst, a Street Food Festival in Cincinnati, a Ramp Festival in Peninsula, a Maple Syrup Festival in Chardon (with rides and everything!) and some Taste fests in Marysville, Granville and Lebanon.

Music lovers, on the other hand, can enjoy bluegrass and country music at the American Roots Music Festival in Kent or head to Cincinnati for the Homecoming Festival, named for The National’s return home to help take part in this festival about music, art and culture.

And let’s not forget about Vikings.  Yes, vikings (plus Medieval knights, belly dancers and a whole lot of fun) at the Ashville Viking Festival.

(I really love this state!)

 

But there are also some not-to-miss festivals in the surrounding states, such as…

INDIANA: Mansfield Village Mushroom Festival (Mansfield), Garden Gate Jazz, Art, Wine and Craft Beer Festival (Huntingburg), Sassafras Tea Festival and Civil War Reenactment (Vernon)

KENTUCKY: Mountain Mushroom Festival (Irvine), Cherokee Triangle Art Fair (Louisville)

MICHIGAN: National Trout Festival (Kalkaska), Freeland Walleye Festival (Freeland)

PENNSYLVANIA: Brewski Festival (Seven Springs), Mayfest (Huntingdon)

WEST VIRGINIA: Ramps and Rail Festival (Elkins), Flip Flop Festival (Harpers Ferry)

 

As always, look to all the lists below, take advantage of the festival reviews and look to the map at the very bottom to find a festival near you.

Have a great and safe weekend, everyone!

Love, Peace and Festival Grease!
