If you are searching for a wholesome festival for Fourth of July weekend, the Festival of the Bells is it. Here you get the opportunity to hear awesome Christian artists like Jana Kramer in the beautiful and quaint town of Hillsboro
Kickin’ Chicken Wing Fest

Gorge yourself on chicken wings while taking in some great rock’n’roll–that’s what this festival in Kettering is all about. Various eateries from around town set up shop to offer their own take on the chicken wing.
Ohio Valley Music Festival
