Part of having a good quality of life is having fun. Wellington offers a series of festivals and events for young and old alike. Being about an hour drive from the Cleveland/Akron/Canton metroplex and almost Columbus, along with being close to many of Ohio’s major attractions, Wellington’s festivals and events are a nice day trip or an excellent stop as part of a larger vacation.
