Weekend Things to Do in the Hocking Hills - September 7-8

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

Raise a stein and say, "Prost," at the Lancaster Oktoberfest. In addition to all of the Oktoberfest fun, you'll find costume contests and a silent auction, so there are plenty of ways to win as well!

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

If you've ever had questions about Old Man's Cave, then this is the hike for you. The Wonders of Old Man's Cave will take you through the history of the area and will teach you about the different rock formations while you get a short hike in. 

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

Learn something new by meeting up with a naturalist this weekend. The Naturalist Cabin will introduce you to Hocking's Owls. Or you can take a class in exploring the streams and aquatic life in the Hocking Hills. 

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

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, or Hocking Hills Winery hear great local music while also drinking local. Or go to the Stuart's Opera House for the Kevin Morby Duo Tour.  

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.
