Super Festival Weekend: September 8-11, 2022

Over 400 Festivals this weekend celebrating Bananas, Pierogi, Fried Green Tomatoes, Tacos, Cannabis and more.

You only need to take one look at the map below to see that this is a super festival weekend. The pins are all bunched together like a beautiful floral bouquet and, while the majority of the festivals are still fairly concentrated in the north, there’s quite a bit going on all over.

With more than 400 festivals this weekend, you can be sure to find all sorts of Art Festivals, Music Festivals, Fall Festivals and City Celebrations.

And there are also festivals with more unique themes this weekend, including a festival about Laura Ingalls Wilder in Wisconsin, Doc Holliday in Georgia, Bananas in Kentucky, Pierogi in Pennsylvania, Lionfish in Florida, Cornbread in Indiana, Collards in North Carolina and Cowpeas in Tennessee.

There’s really too many to mention, but we can take a quick look at each state and I’ll share those that grabbed my attention…

Alabama
Most festivals are around Birmingham with a few up in the northern part of the state. Festivals celebrate the Harvest Moon in Bessemer and Birmingham, Art in Birmingham, Fayette and Huntsville, Music in Huntsville and Dothan and Various Communities like Trussville and Leesburg.

Indiana
It would be hard not to find a festival in Indiana, as they look to be everywhere. I would be interested in checking out the Columbus Scottish Festival, the Valparaiso Popcorn Festival, the Mansfield Village Cornbread Festival in Carbon, the Moon and Stars Festival in Henryville, the Tipton County Pork Festival and the New Palestine Fall Festival.

Kentucky

New York
Enjoy some food festivals this weekend with a Peach Festival in Lewiston and a Tomato Festival in Auburn. There are also Irish Festivals in Syracuse and Elmira, an Indian Festival in Vestal, a Lumberjack Festival in Macedon and all sorts of Music, Autumnal and Art Festivals.
