Upcoming Holiday Festival Weekend: December 7-10, 2023

Hundreds of Light Shows, Christmas Festivals and Markets to check out this weekend!

Christmas is getting closer, Festival Fans, so I hope you’re taking advantage of the Holiday Light Shows out there.

We have two full weekends before the weekend where Christmas Eve falls on a Sunday. And, since I’m sure that weekend will be a busy one, you need to make these next two weekends count!

While the Holiday Light Shows are the same in number, compared to last weekend, the number of Christmas Festivals and Christmas Markets have decreased a little bit, depending on the state.

And there are Chanukah Festivals this weekend in Florida, North Carolina, South Carolina and Virginia. So take advantage of that if you can.

Besides the Holidays, you can find…

  • a Cider Festival in Alabama
  • Art Basel in Florida
  • an Oyster Festival in Florida
  • Decatur’s Bicentennial Celebration in Georgia
  • a Coquito (Puerto Rican eggnog) Festival in Illinois
  • a Pizza Festival in New York

Here’s a small taste of some interesting festivals in each state:

QUICK NOTE:

As you may know, I’ve been creating new State Festival Guides for 2024.

I currently have the following 2024 State Festival Guides available:

Soon, I’ll have Louisiana completed and then, hopefully soon after, I’ll have Texas and New Jersey.

If you know anyone in these states, please share the word about the new guides with them.

I would really appreciate it.

Also, if you happen to be in Ohio this weekend, check this weekend’s post at OhioFestivals.net to see what’s going on. You can find this week’s post at https://ohiofestivals.net/ohio-weekend-121023/

Have a great weekend!

Until next week…

Love, Peace and Festival Grease!
