Best August Festivals

This is a sponsored post.

We may be half way through August, but summer is not over yet. There are still many fun festivals to cross off your summer bucket list. With the State Fair over and school supply shopping done (surprisingly), many are looking forward to fall, but I love to soak up every last bit of summer. Do you, too? Then you will love our August Festivals Guide ūüôā


Thank you to our August Festival Guide Sponsor:
