COLUMBUS – The Ohio Tourism Division recently unveiled the 2010-11 Fall/Winter Ohio Calendar of Events.
The 52-page, full-color Fall/ Winter Ohio Calendar of Events provides travelers with dates, descriptions and contact information for fun and engaging festivals and events found throughout Ohio from September 2010 through February 2011.
“Special events consistently show up in our research as a primary reason for people traveling to and within Ohio,” said State Tourism Director Amir Eylon. “Ohio’s tourism industry takes full advantage of our seasons and agricultural strengths to create outstanding fall and winter tourism experiences including apple butter stirring; leaf peeping tours; fall festivals; holiday lights displays; North Pole Express train excursions; and more.”
The semi-annual Ohio Calendar of Events, in tandem with the continuously updated event listings on DiscoverOhio.com, offers travelers a valuable travel planning resource including:
* Indispensable listings of more than 700 events, festivals, shows, concerts and more taking place between September 2010 and February 2011. All listings are color-coded by geographic area and listed in chronological order for ease of use;
* A travel information section including driving distances, airport information, important travel phone numbers and websites;
* A schedule of 2010 county
* And, a listing of Ohio visitor bureaus/chambers of commerce that provide travel information.
“There is just no better place than Ohio to take in a festival or art event or get out and enjoy some hiking or biking in our state parks all against a backdrop of autumn color or the pristine white of winter’s snow,” Eylon said.
Free Ohio Travel Planners and Ohio Calendars of Events can be ordered anytime day or night from DiscoverOhio.com or Ohio’s toll-free tourism hotline, 1-800-BUCKEYE.
Trained travel counselors are available to assist callers from 8 a.m. to 9 p.m. during the week and from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. on the weekends. The Fall/Winter Ohio Calendar of Events may also be viewed online at DiscoverOhio.com.
