Upcoming Festival Weekend: June 9-12, 2022

An incredible festival weekend with Superman, Beer Cheese, Route 66 and another Testicle Festival.

Oh if only I had a private jet to jump around to all the festivals this weekend. There are some going on that I’ve always wanted to attend like Beer Cheese Festival in Kentucky, the Superman Celebration and the Route 66 Festival in Illinois, the Holy Rosary Street Festival in Indiana, and the Pimento Cheese Festival in North Carolina. And there are so many more I would happily attend, especially the food festivals that celebrate Cereal (MI), Asparagus (MI), Catfish (NC), Butter (WI), Rhubarb (WI), and even fried Testicles (TN).

But there much more than food this weekend – there’s a great variety!

There are Music Festivals, PorchFests, Renaissance Festivals, Scottish Games, Beer Festivals, Wine Festivals, BBQ Cookoffs, Fish (Carp, Catfish, Walleye) Festivals, Parish Festivals, Cultural Festivals and Pride Festivals.

It may seem a little overwhelming, especially if you look at the map below with all those pins bunched up together. But, if you take a closer look at a particular state listing, or section on the map, you can go through it at your own pace and find something that looks interesting.

Here’s what I would consider in each state…

Alabama
Hueytown City Fest, Central Alabama Pride Fest (Birmingham)
Florida
Cocoa Beach Pirate Fest, Philippine Summer Festival (West Palm Beach)
Georgia
Knobbly Knees Music Festival (Albany), Alpharetta Wine Festivla
