Upcoming Festival Weekend: September 29-October 2, 2022

Festivals about the Windigo, Daniel Boone, Davy Crockett, Banana Pudding, Whiskey, Frogs, Bees and so much more!

The festival tides are turning, festival fans. As numbers start to decrease in the north, they start to increase in the south.

States like Alabama, Georgia, North and South Carolina and Florida are all picking up festivals this weekend and there are many that I wish I could attend.

Obviously, with the hurricane in Florida, there will likely be cancellations so please double check before attending. And please stay safe!

I’m keeping this week’s post shorter than normal because I’m running behind with various tasks with the website and life in general. I’ll still mention some festivals that stick out and list them below. I’ve also put together the map, so that should help you out a lot.

Here’s what looks good to me in each state:

Alabama
Quite a few festivals this weekends, including many Oktoberfests, a Magic City Conjure Fest, a Honey Festival, a Druid Festival and a Frog Festival. It’s quite a mix!

Florida
Due to the hurricane, be sure to see if festivals are going on. I hope you are safe, wherever you are.

Georgia
Quite a few festivals. A Porch Festival, an Arab Festival, plus Seafood, Chili, and Crabapple Festivals. There’s even a Gopher Tortoise Festival.

Illinois
Apple and Fall Festivals (and Oktoberfests) are the most common this weekend. Most festivals are either around Chicago or St. Louis, MO.

Indiana
This weekend is about Pumpkins, Oktoberfests and Harvest Festivals. There’s also a Bridge Festival, a Bean Dinner Festival and an Antique Auto Hill Climb.

Kentucky
Many Oktoberfests and Pumpkin Fests this weekend. There are also festivals about Sorghum, Tacos, and Daniel Boone.

Michigan
The Wizard of Oz Festival is this weekend, along with a Red Flannel Festival and a Banana Festival. Still some Oktoberfests going on as well.

New York
Apple, Pumpkin and Scarecrow Festivals this weekend, plus a Scream Fest to get your blood pumping and a Yoga Fest to bring back the zen.

North Carolina
Along with some Fall and Harvest Festivals, there’s an Elk Fest, a Powwow, a Porch Fest and a Colorfest.

Pennsylvania
I hope you like apples, Pennsylvania, because the festivals are all about that this weekend – and Apple Cider.

South Carolina
There’s a Fish and Grits Festival this weekend, along with Oktoberfests and many Fall Festivals. Oh and I see a Collar and Barbeque Festival as well.

Tennessee
This weekend, you can enjoy Whiskey Festivals, Music Festivals, a Pagan Pride Day, and a festival about Davy Crockett. There’s also a Banana Pudding Festival that looks very delicious!

West Virginia
There should be some good eating at the Apple Butter Festival and the Buckwheat Festival (Review). The Mountain State Forest Festival starts up this weekend as well.

Wisconsin
I think I’m most excited about the Windigo Fest this weekend. Some other great-sounding ones include the Scandinavian Festival, a Giant Pumpkin Festival and two Cranberry Festivals.

****

Still a lot of festivals this weekend, so go through the lists carefully and use the map and reviews.

Have a great weekend, everyone!
