Upcoming Fall Festival Weekend: October 19-22, 2023

500 Festivals with Bigfoot, Popeye, Seafood, Fall Festivals, Music and more.

Welcome back, Festival Fans!

While last weekend’s fall/rainy weather may have affected many of you last weekend, there are another 500 festivals coming up with potentially much better weather conditions.

Here’s hoping, at least.

As expected, some of the northern states are having less festivals than previous weekends, so you’re gonna have to bundle up and get out there if you want that funnel cake before it disappears (or you could travel to a southern state, I guess).

Throughout the states, this weekend is made up of many Oktoberfests, Food Festivals, Music Festivals, Heritage/Fall Festivals and more.

There are also…

  • Bigfoot Festivals in Alabama and Tennessee
  • A Popeye Fall Festival in Illinois
  • Food Festivals that include seafood, grits, collard greens, sausage, chili, jerk, peanuts, pecan, oysters, apple dumplings, and so many pumpkins
  • Woolly Worm festivals in Kentucky and North Carolina
  • Bridge Day in West Virginia

Definitely still a lot a great options out there.

To make it easier to find some interesting ones, I’ve highlighted festivals that sound pretty cool for your convenience. Also, be sure to use the map, as it’s very helpful for finding festivals in your neck of the woods.

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

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 50 festivals this weekend, you may want to check out this week’s post from my sister site Ohio Festivals https://ohiofestivals.net/ohio-weekend-102223

Have a wonderful weekend, everyone!

Until next week…

Love, Peace and Festival Grease!
