Weekend Things to Do in the Hocking Hills - Mar 9-10

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:

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. 

Or take a look at the art of our wonderful young artists at Seedlings 17th Annual Spring Art Show

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. 

Or make a stop at Bowen House to enjoy the music and Celtic traditions of Changeling

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!

Make Maple Syrup

Did you know there are many methods for making maple syrup? Try your hand at them this weekend at the Naturalist Cabin's Maple Sugaring in the Hills.

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. 

Enjoy a Musical

It's the tale as old as time. Beauty and the Beast is coming to Stuart's Opera House, and we'd love you to be our guest for this wonderful musical. 

Go Shopping

Get to the Downtown Lancaster Shop Hop to explore local shops and restaurants. You can also get great deals and participate in giveaways. It will be a fun weekend to shop local!

Help with a Bird Count

Whether you have a lot of birding experience or not, your help is needed this weekend at the Winter Bird Count. And participants even receive a free lunch!
