About Festivals in Ohio

Ohio is home to a plethora of different festivals that allow residents to indulge in the arts, culture, food, and local regions of many of its cities. Some festivals are small and highlight local life such as the Mantua Potato Festival while others are large and draw crowds from all over such as the Twinsbug Twins Day festival. Of course, Ohio’s major cities host a great deal of Ohio events and regularly welcome large crowds as the Columbus Arts Festival in the state’s capital or the World Beer Festival held in Cleveland.

Of course, given the fact that Ohio is home to the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame it is also host to a great deal of Ohio music festivals such as Rock on the Range in Columbus, the Midpoint Music Festival, and the Nelsonville Music Festival. The Ohio State Fair is another major festival activity, but there are many other local state fairs that occur throughout the state allowing for great regional activities pretty much every weekend of the summer. Other notable festivals in Ohio include Ohio Valley Frontier Days in Steubenville, The Pro Football Hall of Fame Enshrinement Festival, and the Taste of the Ohio valley Food and Wine Festival.
