Your Guide To The Best Central Ohio Spring Festivals

We’re only about a month away from spring, which means it’s time to start making some plans.

If there’s one thing Columbus and the surrounding communities know how to do, it’s throwing a festival. From cultural gatherings to music festivals to art exhibits and expos, there really is a fest for everyone.

There’s something extra awesome about festivals this time of year. Maybe it’s because we’re saying goodbye to winter and hello to longer days and warmer weather. Or maybe it’s just because the best festivals happen in the spring. Either way, let’s dive into it. We’ve got some plans to make!
