26 Must-Visit Fruit And Veggie Festivals In Ohio

Strawberries, sweet corn, and pumpkins. Oh my!

Ohio has several nationally recognized festivals like the largest pumpkin festival in the country, the Circleville Pumpkin Show. The Troy Strawberry Festival and the Reynoldsburg Tomato Festival are two big contenders, too. Sure everybody’s heard of a tomato and a strawberry, but have you ever heard of a pawpaw?

Somewhere in Ohio, there is a festival celebrating the area’s most recent harvest. A truckload of strawberry fests are just around the corner, while September and October mean apple and pumpkin festivals. Some of these festivals are right here in Central Ohio, and others will give you the chance for a mini-road trip. Enjoy parades, carnivals, pageants, live music, and delicious food.

Here are 26 different festivals that honor the fruits and vegetables in our state.
