Upcoming Festival Weekend: October 5-8, 2017

Pumpkin and Holiday lovers, rejoice!

Now that we are officially into October, it’s time to bring back…

…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 over 90 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…

…the Columbus Italian Festival – my review is a bit old, but the food is fresh and delicious!…

Hands on Heritage (North Olmstead) – old settler activities (ie candle-making) for the kids, music, food and more!…

St. Stanislaus Polish Festival (Cleveland) – a church festival with a lot of great food from pierogi to duck blood soup…

Holmes County Antique Festival (Millersburg) – downtown Millersburg comes alive as one man’s junk becomes another man’s treasure…

Jeromesville Sycamore Festival – although not a big festival, there is the nation’s biggest sycamore tree…

Harvest Happenings (Huron) – animals, activities, great food options and an awesome location…

…and the Huntsburg Pumpkin Festival – games, giant produce and plenty of pumpkin goodies to eat/purchase.

Concerning festivals I would like to visit this weekend, my top pics would be the FireFish Festival in Lorain, the Beaver Oktoberfest, the Grand Rapids Applebutter Fest, the Something Russian Festival in Mogadore, the Marietta Zombie Festival and the Whistling Goat Music and Arts Festival in Versailles. 

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

Indiana: Elvis Fantasy Festival (Portage), Cowtoberfest (Fair Oaks)
Kentucky: Kentucky Black Bear Festival (Cumberland), St. James Court Art Show (Louisville)
Michigan: Empire Hops Festival, Red Flannel Festival (Cedar Springs)
Pennsylvania: ZombieTown USA (Altoona), Mars Applefest
West Virginia: Southern WV Italian Festival (Bluefield), WV Chestnut Festival (Rowlesburg)

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

Love, Peace and Festival Grease!
