Weekend Things to Do in the Hocking Hills - August 3-4

Looking for fun things to do in the Hocking Hills? Check out what there is to do this weekend. 

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:

Be a Hippie

Are you feeling groovy? Then get to the Hippie Fest. From artists to cirque performers to a hippie car show, you'll find all kinds of fun for the whole family. So break out the tie-dye and embrace your inner hippie at this fun festival. 

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


Play Golf at Night

Get ready to light up the night with Late Night Golf. This mini golf course will be lit up for a fun night of golf. And don't miss the ice cream!

Go for a Hike

Learn something new this weekend with a group hike. Have you ever been curious about the natural and cultural of the Cedar Falls? Your questions will be answered on the Cedar Falls Stroll. A naturalist will be on hand to tell you all about the area.  

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!

Learn from a Naturalist

Have you ever wondered about the critters that call the Hocking Hills home? Stop by the Naturalist Cabin and get a closer look at some of our local animal residents. And a naturalist will be happy to answer all of your questions!

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.
