How to find festivals for certain weekends

How can I find out what's happening on the weekend of Aug. 14-15? - Bernice, Holdingford, Minn.

The fastest way to find out what major festivals are scheduled for any particular weekend is to look at our Events Calendar.

I've listed 13 festivals for Aug. 14-15, including Folklorama in Winnipeg, the Wisconsin State Fair, the Iowa State Fair, Bayfront Blues Festival in Duluth, Irish Fair in St. Paul, the Air and Water Show in Chicago and the Tall Ship Festival in Green Bay.

You can also check our story Great summer festivals, which lists festivals by weekend.

For ethnic/heritage festivals, see Celebrating roots. For food festivals, see A feast of festivals.

For outdoor art fairs, see Art al fresco. For dragon-boat festivals, see Waking the dragon. For beer festivals, see Best brew fests

It's also handy to bookmark the state-tourism events pages on your computer. I've got pages bookmarked for events in Minnesota and Wisconsin, among others. When you're looking for festivals during a certain time period, just type in a town and your dates and do a search.
