Looking for events to do in Columbus this month? Check out this list!  

1) Columbus PRIDE Festival

An annual event that takes place on the Scioto Mile, the Columbus PRIDE festival is one of the largest pride festivals in the Midwest.  The festival attracts more than 500,000 people and includes a parade, more than 180 vendors, three music stages, areas for teens and families.  This year, the festival will take place June 16th to June 18th.  

2) Bubble Run Columbus
Starting on June 17th at 8:00 am, the Columbus Bubble Run is a 5k run/walk.  Every kilometer, Foam Bogs will be set up for participants to play in!  It normally costs $20-$50 to sign up, but they are currently having a summer sale for $15.  Don't miss out!

3) Zoofari
I mentioned this event in a previous post, but I wanted to make sure you don't miss it.  When I first found out about this event I felt like all my childhood dreams were coming true.  On June 17th, the Zoo will be hosting a 21 and up party featuring over 100 restaurants so you can "graze" while looking at all the animals.  The event also features a full schedule of live bands!  Please note that you have to purchase tickets, the sooner you buy them, the less expensive

4) Comfest
The nation’s largest independent, volunteer-run, non-corporate, music and arts festival held the last full weekend in June at Goodale Park (June 23rd to 25th).  Comfest offers food, drinks, music, and much more! Admission is free. Keep in mind, there is very limited parking in the area.  To check out the live performances scheduled, click here
