Arts and Crafts Festivals in Ohio

Offer Arts for Everyone

Ohio’s fairs and festivals are a source of great pride for local and

ethnic communities and provide a venue for artists and craftspeople

to share their creativity with hundreds of thousands of Ohioans and

visitors from out of state. In Ohio, festivals range from arts-andcrafts

bazaars to book fairs to multi-day outdoor music concerts, and

they all play a crucial role in increasing our state’s cultural tourism,

celebrating our heritage and supporting our economy.

We invite everyone to use the Ohio Arts Council’s Ohio Arts

Festivals and Competitions Directory to find new opportunities

to enjoy the arts and crafts of Ohio. Creative Ohioans looking

for places to display and sell their work—from traditional crafts

to contemporary creations—will find a festival for them in this

directory. Anyone seeking works of art and crafts of lasting value as

gifts or for their own pleasure also will find this listing helpful.

The Ohio Arts Council publishes this free directory and distributes it

in partnership with the Ohio Arts and Crafts Guild and Ohio Designer

Craftsmen. The directory is sized to fit in a car’s glove box and

contains information on more than 300 arts and crafts festivals and

competitions statewide.

We hope you will find frequent opportunity to use the Ohio Arts

Festivals and Competitions Directory as you explore the many

opportunities to share the arts and crafts created in Ohiothe artistic

heart of our nation.

How This Directory Is Compiled

The Ohio Arts Council sends questionnaires to the promoters of arts

festivals and competitions in Ohio, seeking information about their

events. Information provided by the promoters is arranged by date

and location in sections labeled Festivals and Exhibitions, followed

by alphabetical indexes of Festivals by Name, Festivals by City,

Exhibitions by Sponsor and Exhibitions by Name.

Events are classified as juried, nonjuried, invitational or juried

invitational, according to information supplied by the promoters.

Those classifications are defined this way:

Juried - A neutral panel or juror reviews each applicant’s work or

slides and makes final selection decisions;

Nonjuried - All applicants are accepted until all spaces are filled,

first-come first-served;

Invitational - Promoters or their staff select exhibitors from

applications or by direct invitations;

Juried invitational - All applicants, past and present, are

reviewed by a neutral panel or juror, then the panel or juror makes

recommendations to the promoter or chairperson who makes final

selection decisions.

Important Notice

Listings in the Ohio Arts Festivals and Competitions Directory have

been compiled based on information supplied by proprietors and

promoters of the individual festivals and competitions. The Ohio

Arts Council (OAC) cannot be held responsible for the accuracy of

that information.

Information may be subject to change. Prior to traveling, please

confirm dates and locations of festivals by visiting the festival’s

website or contacting them via phone.

Artists and craftspeople should be aware that a listing in this directory

does not constitute an endorsement by the OAC of any particular

festival or competition or its promoter or proprietor. Artists and

craftspeople are advised to conduct their own inquiries about any

event that interests them. We have noted where vendor and/or public

parking is provided free of charge. This information may not be

comprehensive.

While we try to make this list as extensive as possible, this is not a

listing of all Ohio festivals. Travelers may discover other worthwhile

festivals, events and arts destinations by calling 1-800/BUCKEYE or

by contacting local convention and visitors bureaus around the state,

which are listed on pages 86-93 in this directory, or by visiting
