DealDash Explores Ideas for Local Events

Now that it’s getting warmer out, it’s the perfect time to check out some local events around town. Supporting your local artists, restaurants, and crafters is always a good idea.

Spring is a magical time of year, brimming with new beginnings and the promise of warmer days. It’s also a season rich with local festivals and events that celebrate everything from blooming flowers, local foods, to cultural traditions. These gatherings offer fun and entertainment and also a chance to connect with the community and learn something new. Whether you’re a long-time resident or new to the area, exploring local spring festivals can make the season even more special. Here’s a guide to making the most of these vibrant events with your family, from DealDash.

Must-Visit Spring Festivals

Every region has its own unique set of festivals that capture the essence of the area. While types of events will vary, here are types of festivals you might find in your community or nearby:

  • Flower and Garden Shows: These festivals celebrate the beauty of spring blooms and offer a great opportunity to learn about gardening, sustainable practices, and local flora.
  • Cultural Festivals: Springtime often aligns with significant cultural and religious celebrations. These festivals can offer a glimpse into the traditions, foods, and arts of different communities. I have lived in many different states, and each one offered a Greek Festival yearly.
  • Food and Wine Festivals: For the foodies, these festivals showcase local cuisine, craft beers, and wines. They’re a great way to taste the local flavors and meet the people behind them.
  • Art and Craft Fairs: Local artists and craftspeople display their work, offering a range of unique and handmade items. These fairs support local talent and often include workshops or demonstrations. These are my absolute favorite kind of festivals/fairs. Many people are familiar with Christmas craft fairs, but the spring and summer ones are awesome, too!

Tips for Making the Most of Local Fairs and Festivals

To ensure your festival experience is enjoyable and hassle-free, consider these tips:

  • Check the Schedule in Advance: Many festivals offer a variety of activities and performances throughout the day. Plan your visit around the events or shows that interest your family the most. Unfortunately for night-owls like me, most of these special events happen early in the morning and continue through early afternoon.
  • Prepare for the Weather: Spring weather can be unpredictable. Dress in layers and bring along sunscreen, hats, and rain gear just in case.
  • Pack Snacks and Water: While festivals often have food vendors, having snacks and water on hand can keep everyone happy and hydrated throughout the day. Additionally, food and drinks at these types of events tend to be both unhealthy and expensive.
  • Set a Meeting Point: In case you get separated, choose a clear, easy-to-find meeting point as soon as you arrive.
  • Explore Beyond the Main Events: Take time to wander and explore the festival beyond the main attractions. You might discover something wonderful in the quieter corners.
  • Bring Walkie-Talkies for Kids: If you have younger kids in the 6-12 age range who might not have cell phones yet, be sure to bring walkie-talkies. This way you can ensure that you can contact each other even if you might let them have a little freedom.

If you’re having trouble finding local events that you’re interested in, check out Eventbrite. You can put in your zip code and it will show local festivals, concerts, fairs, and more in your area.
