Upcoming Fall Festival Weekend: October 12-15, 2023

Another great fall festival weekend as we continue into October.

Welcome back, Festival Fans!

While it’s true there are less festivals than last weekend, there are still hundreds of great festivals going on throughout the states (it may be somewhere between 500 to 600).

Being that I went to a few festivals this past weekend (subscribers may have been notified of these new posts), I am in the midst of both writing about those experiences and writing about what’s coming up.

My past and future are intertwined with my present.

So let’s keep this quick so that I can get this post written and ready by Wednesday morning.

Festivals are highlighted below for your convenience and the map is super useful for finding festivals in your neck of the woods.

Let’s not waste any time. I’ll give you some recommendations for each state and then I’ll let you plan away.

Take your time going through the lists so that you don’t miss anything.

Be sure to use the map to see what’s around you (cities can have more than one festival).

And, if you are near or plan to travel to Ohio, which also has 100+ festivals this weekend, you may want to check out this week’s post from my sister site Ohio Festivals https://ohiofestivals.net/ohio-weekend-101523

Have a wonderful weekend, everyone!

Until next week…

Love, Peace and Festival Grease!
