The 2024 Eclipse Weekend of Festivals: April 4-8, 2024

Plenty of Festivals along the Path of Totality as well as off it.

Welcome back, Festival Fans!

Well, it’s finally coming…

…the Total Solar Eclipse.

If you’ve never seen a Total Solar Eclipse (99% totality does not count), you are in for a treat!

The sky darkens to appear like it’s dusk, some stars may be visible and the temperature drops a few degrees. You may hear crickets, but most of the animals may be silent, adding an eerie effect.

And, during Totality only, you can look at the moon with your eyes and admire the Corona of the sun.

Really beautiful!

MANY of this weekend’s festivals (all the blue pins on the map) are Eclipse-related to some degree or another. And all of the Eclipse Festivals that I’m listing should have at least live music and multiple food vendors.

But even while the festivals may be similar in that they all have live music and food, they vary greatly in size and offerings.

You’ll find everything from small community downtown fests with a few food trucks and a local performer to huge camping festivals with big name rock bands and traveling food vendors.

There should be a little for everyone.

****

If you are in a state where there isn’t an eclipse passing through (or you’re just sick of hearing about eclipses), you may still have plenty of festival options out there.

As you can tell by the map, there’s a LOT going on, including:

  • all sorts of Music Festivals
  • Food Festivals celebrating Crawfish, BBQ, Honey, Blueberries, Donuts, Chocolate, Banana Pudding, Po-Boys, Cracklin, Catfish, Chicken Wings, Mac and Cheese, Potatoes, Hot Slaw,
  • Cultural Festivals that include Scottish, Latino, Korean, Native American cultures
  • Beer and Wine Festivals (as well as Whiskey and Bourbon)
  • Art Festivals
  • a Pottery Festival
  • Renaissance Festivals
  • Spring Festivals
  • Cherry Blossom, Daffodil and other Floral Festivals
  • Holi Festivals
  • Pirate Festivals
  • a Twin Festival
  • UFO Festivals
