The annual Labor Day Festival is Canal Winchester's largest and longest running event. What began in 1920 as a small gathering called the Fall Festival is now a local tradition that attracts over 40,000 visitors each year.
The festival offers something for everyone. The food always is the most popular attraction. It is hard to walk through the festival without grabbing something to eat.
During the day, activities focus on the kids. There are rides, games, and a pageant. Every evening there are bands for the older crowd. Don't miss the car show, beer tent and several dozen vendors.
The event for all ages is the Labor Day parade. There are hundreds of entries for everyone to enjoy! The parade has state and local entries that everyone enjoys.
