Central Ohio Rich with Festivals for Late Summer and Early Fall, Including Lexington Blueberry Festival!
Need a break from the city life? Enjoy the rural festival and fairs of your childhood? Ohio seems to offer a wealth of free or low-cost festivals during the late summer and fall, in addition to all the local county fairs of course. These are ideal for an overnight road trip or a weekend getaway in Mid Ohio that offers you food, entertainment, and fun.
If you are looking to take a scenic drive to central Ohio during this middle part of August and into September, many festivals are to be found such as the Bucyrus Bratwurst Festival which is August 14-16, and the Marion Popcorn Festival, which is in September. And that’s just to name a few!
However, another festive family or couple friendly event with something to do for all ages is the Lexington Blueberry Festival, which is also August 14-17, 2014. Ohio’s Lexington Blueberry Festival offers, of course, a celebration of the luscious blueberries grown in Richland County, but as well all types of entertainment such as a parade, a 5K, and even a singing contest called “Blueberry Idol.”
The festival is bustling with food vendors to choose from and many feature something blueberry, such as The Blueberry Patch will offer the Blueberry Burger and their Blueberry Cobbler and Chaos Café wil be putting their Blueberry Chicken Wrap on the menu. You can check out all the food here.
There are a wealth of bands playing, games and races to sign-up for or sit and watch, a petting zoo and pony rides, a car and bike show, and on Saturday night there are fireworks!
The car and bike show is from 5:30-9:30 p.m. on Friday! If you have a classic car or bike you’ll bring down for the weekend, enter it in the show! Click here for a registration form.
We’d love for you to schedule a stay at HideAway Country Inn, the premiere bed and breakfast located in central Ohio, as part of your weekend getaway for any upcoming Ohio festival you choose! However, this week is a great time to take in both the Bucyrus Bratwurst Festival AND the Lexington Blueberry Festival!
