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

Ready to explore? Or try your hand at something new? Here's what you need to know to have a great time this weekend:

Hocking Hills Comfort Food Cruise

Eat your way through the Hocking Hills with the Comfort Food Cruise. You'll be able to eat tasty dishes from some of the best restaurants in the Hocking Hills. And you can even make this a guilt-free cruise by making stops to hike and work off all of those calories!

Make a Stop at the Farmers' Market

Is your goal this year to eat food that is better for you? Then this is a great time to start eating local. Get started with a stop at the Athens 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 Local Artists

Did you know some very talented artists call the Hocking Hills home? You can see the work of just a few of them at Positive Light, a photographic exhibition of life’s brighter side, featuring John Halley, Wendy Minor Viny and Joel Prince. In this exhibit, these photographers share what they find uplifting about our area. 

Hear Live Music

Let the music of the Hocking Hills warm you up this winter. Make a stop at Brewery 33, RockSide Winery & Vineyards or Hocking Hills Winery to hear great local music while also drinking local. 

Explore the Outdoors

Do you have questions about the Hocking Hills? Then get outdoors with these activities this weekend! You can meet a naturalist for a hike at Old Man's Cave. At the Naturalist Cabin, you can learn about the birds or critters that call the Hocking Hills their home. 

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. 

Discover Beadmaking

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. It's a great opportunity to pick up a new hobby!

Have Bluegrass Fun

Want to get your toes tapping with some bluegrass music? Rhonda Vincent & The Rage will be at the Stuart's Opera House for a one-of-a-kind performance. You can't miss this special Sunday matinee.
