Columbus, OH is a bright and vibrant city that matches industry with culture and education. This fine mix of youthful spirit has led to the creation of many festivals in Columbus. The summer season in particular is a grand time to visit the city and take part in many fine Columbus events such as the Merion Village Yard Sale, the Pinch Flat, the Central Ohio Folk Festival, Paws in the Plaza, the Delaware Arts Festival, the Heart of Africa at the Columbus Zoo, the Duck Creek Log Jam, the Asian Festival, the Mini Ale Fest and more.
Of course, this is just the tip of the iceberg when it comes to all of the fantastic festivals in the city, but before getting overwhelmed stop by the Stop and Smell the Roses festival event where visitors are literally invited to stop and smell the luscious smell of summer flowers. Those with a taste for sun and music will also enjoy the many Columbus Music Festivals such as The Olde Town East Music in the Garden, Shadow Box Live’s Back to the Garden, Grove City’s Summer Sizzle Concert Series, Nelsonville Music Festival, Washboard Music Festival, Rhythm on the River, or the Cultural Wall Music Festival.
