Upcoming Festival Weekend: December 14-31, 2017

This is the last post of the year, Festival Fans!

That’s right!  Since there are only a few New Year’s Eve and holiday festivals beyond this weekend, I thought I would just combine all remaining events on one last post.

Please go through the listings below and be very mindful of the dates, as some events actually extend all the way into January.  If they are at the top of the list, it could simply mean that they started earlier.

There’s still a nice amount of craft shows and holiday events this weekend, so go out and enjoy yourself whether to be social or to gather some last minute gifts.

You can even find me a gift for my birthday on December 24th!

Haha…actually, please don’t.

If you could get me any gift, I’d ask you to let all your friends and family about Ohiofestivals.net and spread the word about all the festivals listed on my Schedule Pages and/or the 450 festival reviews.  I’m a Capricorn, after all…notoriety and recognition are things I strive for.  If anyone tells a friend who ends up interviewing me for an article in the New York Times or gains the interest of Anthony Bourdain and Andrew Zimmern, it would truly make my year!  🙂



But, even if that never happens, please know that your readership and support are two of the many rewards I’ve experienced that keep me going.  I can’t tell you how much I appreciate your comments, suggestions and simple ‘thank you’s.’

I would like to wish you all a Happy Holiday Season, including a wonderful New Year!

I’ll be reaching out to you in January to help start a new year of fantastic festivals in Ohio and beyond.

Love, Peace and Festive Festival Grease!
