Upcoming Festival Weekend: March 31 – April 3, 2022

Crawfish, Swamps, Mules and some Banana Pudding, .

It’s a truly interesting selection of festivals this upcoming weekend with all sorts of things to eat, drink and celebrate. Southern States, namely Alabama, Florida, Georgia, North Carolina, South Carolina and Tennessee, are holding the majority of this week’s festivals and there are some good ones.

If you love crawfish, you need to head to Alabama, as there are three festivals partnered with a rodeo (Jemison), music (Ozark) and margaritas (Foley). Florida and Georgia are both celebrating swamps this weekend while both Georgia and Tennessee have Banana Pudding Festivals. Meanwhile, Columbia, Tennessee is all about the Mules.

But there are also festivals about wine, beer, bourbon, whisky, BBQ, Storytelling, music, Highland Games, soda, strawberries, and more.

Definitely take a look at the lists below and check out the variety. As we move through April and get into May, these lists are just going to get longer and longer. I’m very excited!
