With such a warm winter, it may feel like it’s taking forever for festival season to kick into high gear, but please try to remember that it’s only April.
You’ll have tons of great choices in just a few weeks.
Hopefully, these cool festivals will be able to satisfy you until then…
EarthFest – Saturday, April 17, 2016 – Berea: Proclaimed as “Ohio’s largest environmental education event and the longest running Earth Day celebration in the country,” this festival will also be offering plenty of food trucks, music entertainment, petting zoos and rides fueled by biodiesel. There is admission for this festival ($4 for ages 2-11 and $8 for ages 12+).
Geauga County Maple Festival
Geauga County Maple Festival – Thursday, April 24 – Sunday, April 27, 2016 – Chardon: This free town festival is equipped with rides, various forms of entertainment (chainsaws, tractor pulls, etc.) a nice market with various maple products, pancakes in the park and a lot of food. Last year, there was even a food truck with a maple syrup menu (look for that). Maple events and displays help accentuate the theme.

Ramp Up Peninsula
Ramp Up Peninsula – Saturday, April 30, 2016 – Peninsula: This year, the ramp, or wild leek, is celebrated at Heritage Farms on Riverview Road in Peninsula. There will be music, guided walks, vendors and plenty of ramps to purchase and eat. Admission is $5. Check out my 2014 Review at http://ohiofestivals.net/ramp-up-peninsula/
AND…if you don’t mind driving a little bit…
Ashville Viking Festival
Ashville Viking Festival – Saturday, April 23 – Sunday, April 24, 2016 – Ashville: As a huge Viking ship is anchored in the middle of the town park, this festival pulls visitors back in time to enjoy the company of Vikings, Barbarians and living history re-enactors. There is a fighting arena and a Saxon Market, not to mention the turkey legs and bread bowls filled with soup. Plenty of entertainment and fun to be had. Just try to bring a food item to donate to the Ashville Food Pantry. Check out my 2011 Review at http://ohiofestivals.net/9-ashville-viking-festival-april-30-2011/
