One of the most iconic parts about Centerburg is The Centerburg Oldtime Farming Festival. This festival is an homage to Ohio’s agricultural roots. 2018 will be its 27th annual festival, during the third weekend of September as usual.

Places to See Near Centerburg
The cities surrounding Centerburg each have their own distinct feel and style. These are two locations to check out on your way home from picking up your shed, cabin, or garage from Shed Solutions.
The capitol of Ohio, Columbus is home to almost 900,000 people. That’s more than any other city in Ohio; in fact, Columbus has the 14th highest population of any state in the US. Columbus is celebrated for its wage growth, and was voted in Money Magazine’s 6 Best Big Cities as the Best in the Midwest. Big business set down roots in the area, bringing jobs and opportunities to an already burgeoning city.
It’s not always serious for Columbusites; especially since the invention of the Doo Dah parade in 1983. This parade showcases all things satire, and prides itself on its lack of rules. The parade is a celebration of frivolity, and reminds people to take things less seriously for a while.
Columbus has a variety of attractions for visitors, and is well worth the trip. Not to mention its highly renowned college football team, the Buckeyes. Valued at $1.5 billion, Ohio State University has the highest valuation of any college football team in the US. So the next time you’re in Columbus, make sure you catch an NCAA Division college football game with one of the most promising teams in the league.
Dublin Ohio, or “the City with Irish Attitude”, takes pride in their Irish heritage. Every year, they host the Dublin Irish Festival as the largest three-day Irish festival in the world. Dublin’s Irish history traces back to 1810 with John Shields of Dublin, Ireland. He named the settlement after his birthplace based on its scenic, green landscape.
Over 41,000 people call Dublin home, and visitors from all over come to Dublin to frequent its many pristine golf courses. In fact, golfers stop to play the Memorial Tournament in Dublin as part of the PGA Tour every year.
Dublin Ohio is also home to a few sensationally unique monuments. “Leatherlips”, for example, is an eleven feet tall statue made in honor of Wyandot Chief Shateyahronya. Forged in remembrance to the historic chief, this piece is striking in contrast to the vast green fields surrounding it.
Harkening back to Ohio’s agricultural past, there is an interesting art installation of 8-feet-tall concrete corn statues along a main road. Also dubbed “Cornhenge”, these towering concrete veggies were made to commemorate corn and crop hybridization. It’s an intriguing sight, and a fantastic photo opportunity for travelers.
Peppered throughout these cities are a few incredible attractions that you can’t pass up.
