Toledo Talk

Annual Festivals / Events

I am sick and tired of watching the news and finding out on Sunday what events TOOK place that weekend. Had I KNOWN, I would have participated! Well, next year is going to be different.

I am making a calendar of ALL the Annual Festivals / Events in the Greater Toledo Area which includes NW Ohio and SE Michigan. Could you please review and add to the list, and if possible add a website link. This info will be published on my website as well in a calendar type format.

Thank YOU for your help!

I agree with you too about this not knowing of events. There is a website that is hoping to be able to share events like this its

Maybe you could create a Toledo Events Calendar and sell it.

"the Holiday Parade starts at 10 a.m. this Saturday as well."

Brutal weather is predicted for the parade start time with temps forecast to be only 35 to 40 degrees with breezy winds, and worst of all, it might be cloudy. Imagine, no sunshine in the Great Lakes Region in November. Hopefully, the parade is rescheduled for June to protect the rugrats and the rest of humanity.

Web version will be free, but if you are thinking about a regular hard copy or paper calendar, not a bad idea. I always wanted to do something with the fire/police department to fund a teddy bear program for the kids of victims.

Thanks for the updates everyone!!!!
