Zucchini corndog? Zucchini funnel cake? This upcoming 4 day festival is dedicated entirely to this vegetable

Sav McKee

Live music, festival rides, and zucchini funnel cakes – there’s only one place that encompasses this year after year: The Zucchini Fest in Obetz, Ohio, taking place over Labor Day Weekend.

This free admission, family friendly, four day festival will feature music entertainment by The Spin Doctors, Vanilla Ice, and Brantley Gilbert. There will also be a ton of festival rides! 

And of course, the main attraction: the zucchini. Even Schimdt’s restaurant will be featuring a zucchini cream puff. Other must-try bites include zucchini ribbon fries, zucchini mini donuts, zucchini Philly Cheesesteaks, and even zucchini lemonade. Plus, much more.


There’s also a parade, a car show, and a pageant. This is an annual event you and your family won’t want to miss – even if zucchini isn’t necessarily your thing.

This festival takes place starting September 1st and ends September 4th. For more information, including times, event schedules, and pricing for rides, visit their website.
