Super Festival Weekend: September 14-17, 2023

650+ Festivals for another Mega Festival Weekend: the Mothman, FrankenFest, Pirates, Spoonbread, Peanuts, Oysters and more.

Welcome back, Festival Fans.

If you thought last weekend was a big festival weekend with over 500 festivals, hold onto your smartphone because this weekend is offering more than 650 Festivals.

650 Festivals!

Pennsylvania alone has over 100 of those festivals while Illinois has nearly 80, Wisconsin has 60, Michigan has over 50 and many other states are above 30 each.

And while the festival quantity is high, some really special festivals are going on this weekend like the Mothman Festival (Review) in West Virginia where cryptid lovers come together for a fun festival with music, interesting vendors, Mothman inspired food, the Men in Black, and other creatures and characters.

Also, this weekend, did you know there was…
… a Fried Pie Festival in Georgia?
… a Back to the Fifties Festival in Indiana?
… a Spoonbread Festival (Review) in Kentucky?
… a Garlic Festival in New York?
… a Wizard of Oz Festival in North Carolina?
… a Peanut Butter Festival in Pennsylvania?
… an Arepa Festival in South Carolina?
… and Pirate Festivals in both North Carolina and Pennsylvania?

As you go through the listings, you are going to see a lot of Cultural, Season, Musical, Food-centric and Fun Festivals to choose from.

Go through the festival listings slowly and take advantage of the maps and reviews. I know I sound like a broken record for repeating this again, but there is a lot of info down there to sort though.

In fact, I’m going to have to highlight some festivals once again to bring attention to some interesting ones and help break up the monotony of the festival listings. And, if you want me to bring attention to certain festivals, write me and let me know what I should highlight. I’ll highlight those recommended festivals this color.
