The Great Trail Festival, a festival of old fashioned music, arts and crafts, is held near the village of Malvern each year at the end of August and the beginning of September. A celebration of Ohio's colonial history, the event focuses particularly on the region's Native American and French heritage, complete with a small herd of buffalo and battle reenactment.
The Algonquin Mill Fest is another local festival. Held 4 miles south of Carrollton on SR 332 at the Algonquin Mill - a pioneer village with one room schoolhouse, steam-powered saw and flour mills, as well as several other historic buildings. Hand made arts and crafts are sold, along with flour milled during the festival, a pancake breakfast and chicken barbecue dinners.
Carroll Christmas is perhaps the greatest legacy of Carroll, bringing the spirit of Christmas to the common people. The youth will often describe it as "lit". This is a great opportunity to visit Carroll and meet friends old and new. Common sights include elves, ugly sweaters, Santa and Mrs. Claus, and a large congregation of people in a very happy state.
