And be sure to head downtown each June for the Columbus Arts Festival along the Ohio Riverfront.
Hungry? Be sure to catch downtown’s Jazz & Ribs Festival in July, or Restaurant Week Columbus – held in January and July.
And remember, more live music is always found at Nationwide Arena.

Cultural festivities abound as well in Discovery City. Don’t miss downtown’s Greek Festival, the Columbus Asian Festival and JuneteenthOhio Festival in Franklin Park, and Oktoberfest in, of course, Columbus’ historic German Village.
For anticipated events, catch the Red, White & Boom! event or the Doo Dah Parade near Fourth of July, HighBall Halloween in the Short North, and holiday fun like the Holiday Craftacular at Schiller Park, and the Botanica Holiday Open House at Franklin Park Conservatory.
