Upcoming Festival Weekend: July 21-24, 2022

Ernest Hemingway, UFO’s, Baby Food and Bagels.

It’s a wide assortment of festival themes this weekend. Along with the various Community, Food, and Cultural Celebrations, there’s an Ernest Hemingway Festival, which includes a Look-Alike contest, in Florida. There are also an interesting UFO Festival in Pennsylvania, a Baby Food Festival in Michigan and a Bagel Festival in Illinois.

Just like last weekend, the majority of festivals are in the northern states, but even their numbers are temporarily down this week. Numbers pick back up next weekend and then really start to climb in August. In September, these posts will get really long with all the festivals going on.

Let’s take a look at some of the festivals going on in each state this weekend:

Alabama
No festivals this weekend.

Florida
It’s a good weekend to dress up as Ernest Hemingway and head to Key West. You can also celebrate Columbia in two Floridian cities (Miramar and Tampa).

Georgia
There is a Christmas in July Festival, plus an Ice Cream Festival in Atlanta and a French Festival in Hoschton.

Illinois
Not only is there a Taco Festival this weekend, but there’s a Margarita Festival as well. Plus you can eat your way through festivals about Bagels, Corn, BBQ and Pizza.

Indiana
Circus City continues through Saturday. There’s also a Wilbur Wright Fly-in, a Pride Fest in Fort Wayne and a Pakistan Independence Day Celebration.

Kentucky
Two BBQ Festivals in Dawson Springs and Louisville as well as the Mountain Grrl Experience, a music and arts festival run by women to raise money for women in need.

Michigan
Trout Festivals, a Baby Food Festival, Faster Horses and Music. There’s a good number of festivals in Michigan this weekend, so check out the list.

New York
There really is an interesting mix of festival celebrations this weekend: Murals, Blueberry and Books, Indigenous Music, Salt and Light, the Civil War, Jazz, Wine, Italians and more.

North Carolina
The same state serving a Hillbilly Jam and a Fiddlers Fest is also giving us a Beatles Festival and Dragon Boat Fest. I love North Carolina.

Pennsylvania
I would really love to check out the UFO Festival in Kecksburg this weekend (but it may be just a tad far from me). There are also some Parish Festivals, Music Festivals and Beer Festivals.

South Carolina
A Water Festival in Beaufort and a Sweetgrass Festival in Mount Pleasant.

Tennessee
Tomatoes, Beer and all sorts of Music in Tennessee this weekend.

West Virginia
A Riverfest and Summer Celebrations!

Wisconsin
Various Music Festivals (Gypsy Swing, Country, Polka, Blues), Storytelling, Wine, Butterflies, Lavender and Fire.
