Rev up your fall with these drive-thru happenings!

Drive-Thru these Ohio Events

By Ohio.org Staff

Posted On: Oct 27, 2020

New ways to experience fun this fall have popped up all over Ohio. From drive-thru food truck festivals, secret drive-in movie screenings to musical experiences – like the Westland Mall Drive-In Concerts in Columbus.

At the Westland Mall Drive-In concert series, you’ll get the experience of seeing your favorite performers live, but from the safety (and warmth) of your car. Although, for those willing to brave the chilly Ohio nights, there’s plenty of room to dance alongside your car (and rock those moves you learned from TikTok)!

If you want to get your groove on, tickets are still available for their next two upcoming shows – and you can get 10% off with code OHIO:

  • Major Lazor (Oct. 29)
  • Bone Thugs-N-Harmony (Oct. 30)

For even more drive-thru fun, check out these other events happening across Ohio:
