Weekend Things to Do in the Hocking Hills - August 24-25

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:

Enjoy a Corn Roast

Beer, food and entertainment! Plus the chance to support local veterans. You just can't miss the American Legion Annual Corn Roast and Music

Go Back in Time

Did you know the Hocking County Historical Society & Hocking County Genealogical Society have six buildings that you can explore for free? From trying your hand at Morse Code to sitting in a 1900s school desk, there many ways to enjoy the past here. 

Go for a Hike

Take a stroll around Cedar Falls as you get to know the unique natural and cultural history of the area. You'll love the Cedar Falls Stroll

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! Or put on your best Hawaiian shirt and enjoy a luau

Learn from a Naturalist

Do you want to learn more about the creatures that call the Hocking Hills home? Then stop at the naturalist cabin for some reptile fun this weekend. 

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. Or get to the Bowen House for Summer Art in the Hills

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.
