Weekend Things to Do in the Hocking Hills - August 10-11

It's another weekend full of fun things to do in the Hocking Hills!

Whether you want to get outside to explore or check all of the fun things you can do indoors here, there is a lot going on. Here's what you should plan on doing this weekend:

Have Festival Fun

Lancaster BrewFest Brew Week kicks off this weekend! Enjoy lots of beer-themed fun when BrewFest takes over Lancaster. 

See the Butterflies

It's a great weekend if you love butterflies. You can go on a guided butterfly hike to see them in nature. Or go to the Butterfly Ridge Conservation Center as they bring out special lights to attract moths during Saturday Night Lights

Go on a Date

The Ridge Inn Restaurant is hosting Sweet Second Saturday. This is your chance to take the one you love on a date with live music and dinner specials. 

Pick Up a New Hobby

You can check out the Second Sunday Beadmaking at the Ohio Glass Museum. Here you will find demonstrations and chances to try your hand at the craft. 

Go for a Hike

Get off the beaten path this weekend and visit Broken Rock Falls. This little-visited waterfall is special in its own right and one of the great secrets of the Hocking Hills. 

Float Along

Paddling, live music and s'mores! The Flaming Torchlight Tour on the Hocking really does have all of the ingredients for a good time. 

Feed Hummingbirds

Did you know you can actually get up close to feed hummingbirds? Go to Hungry Hummers at Lake Hope State Park for your chance. All you have to do is be very still and very quiet, and you just might make a friend with a hummingbird. 

See Outdoor Theater

There is nothing quite like seeing the epic story of Tecumseh live. Sit under the stars as the story unfolds in front of you, complete with horses and stunning live battle sequences. It makes for a night that you will never forget. 

Raise a Beer

Food trucks, beers and live music?! Does it get any better than that? It does when you can bring your favorite gear to show off to people that will appreciate it. Make sure to stop at Beers, Gears & Cheers!

Make a Stop at the Farmers' Market

Get started eating local with a stop at the Athens Farmers' Market or the Lancaster Farmers' Market. And even better, you'll get the chance to shake the hand of the person that made your food. 

See the Work of Artists

Want to see some local art? You can see the work of quilters at The Dairy Barn Arts Center. These were deemed the 84 best contemporary quilts in the world, so it's something not to be missed. And be sure to check out  Casey's Rock n Roll Dustbin Exhibit

Hear Live Music

Enjoy the music of the Hocking Hills. Make a stop at Brewery 33,  Hocking Hills Winery or RockSide Winery & Vineyards to hear great local music while also drinking local. 

See the Stars

There's nothing quite like a beautiful starry night. And that starry night looks even better at the John Glenn Astronomy Park. Bring your whole family to marvel at the beauty of the night sky.
