New Straitsville Moonshine Festival:  An Ohio festival for the rebel inside you. Once the moonshine capital of the world, New Straitsville hosts an annual festival devoted to celebrating the history and making of moonshine. During the days of Prohibition, the town of New Straitsville churned out more moonshine than anywhere else in the country. The festival has been held every May since 1971. The five-day Moonshine Festival features free live entertainment, amusement rides, carnival-style food and drinks, and the Moonshine Festival parade along New Straitville’s Main Street. The city gets a five-day license to brew old fashion moonshine to demonstrate the complicated process to festival-goers. Visitors can also visit the history museum and see a working moonshine still display. Visitors are welcome to experience everything this unique festival has to offer. ; )
