Upcoming Festival Weekend: July 7-10, 2022

Festivals stay plentiful in the northern states this weekend.

Now that the 4th of July is behind us, festival numbers are only staying strong in the Northern States as the weather is much more tolerable. States like Illinois, Indiana, Michigan, New York, Pennsylvania and Wisconsin are flourishing with festivals while states like Alabama, Georgia and Florida are having very small numbers at the time. This will definitely swing around by the time we get into late October.

Concerning this weekend’s selection of festivals, there is a huge range. There are many Cultural Festivals and Pow Wows, Art Festivals, Festivals involving beer/wine/cocktails, Hot Air Balloon Fests, Community Festivals, Music Festivals and Festivals that celebrate local seasonal produce (ie corn, cantaloupe, etc.).

Let’s look at each state a little more closely:

Alabama
It just may be too hot this weekend. The only fests I found are in Spanish Fort and Centreville this weekend. If you know of others, write me and let me know.

Florida
The two festivals I found are in Arcadia and Gainesville this weekend. If you know of others, write me and let me know.

Georgia
Festivals are mostly in the Atlanta area this weekend. If you know of others, write me and let me know.

Illinois
A nice amount of cultural festivals this weekend (German, Greek, Hungarian, Brazilian, Latino). There are also festivals about Abraham Lincoln, Windmills, Friendship and Pigs.

Indiana
Native American, Italian and Greek festivals are celebrated this weekend along with Rivers, Lakes, Sweet Corn and Hot Air Balloons.

Kentucky
Wine, Beer, Blueberries and Bluegrass this weekend, not to mention Christmas.

Michigan
There are festivals all over the state this weekend. The Cherry Festival continues in Traverse City with other festivals celebrating Strawberries, Corn, Elvis, Bluegrass, Bluegill and more.

New York
Many fests around Buffalo and Rochester with celebrations for Lavender, Pirates, Fairy Houses, Cheddar Cheese and Wine in the Finger Lakes.

North Carolina
Only a handful of festival this weekend with Highland Games, a Cantaloupe Festival and Coon Dog Day.

Pennsylvania
A Cherry Festival, a few Cultural Festivals, Community Festivals galore and a Hog Roast. There is also a Vintage Market, a national festival, and my review is posted below.

South Carolina
I only know of a festival in Greenwood. If you know of others, write me and let me know.

Tennessee
This weekend, there are two Sunflower Festivals, a Tomato Festival, a Peach Festival and some Music Festivals.

West Virginia
John Henry Days returns to Talcott with the New Deal Festival in Arthurdale.

Wisconsin
Music Festivals, Art Festivals, Community Festivals and Cultural Festivals. Plenty of festivals all throughout the state.
