Hocking Hills Comfort Food Cruise

Annual Hocking Hills event, Comfort Food Cruise, to twelve Hocking Hills restaurants, each featuring a different comfort food.

January 11, 12, 18, 19, 25 & 26, 2020 

It’s the 7th Annual Hocking Hills Comfort Food Cruise and
2020 brings more choices than ever!  

New in 2020, the Comfort Food Trail.  Enjoy Hocking Hills’ locally owned eateries year-round on the new Comfort Food Trail.  With the purchase of a Comfort Food Cruise ticket, you will receive the new Comfort Food Trail Pass.  This card will entitle you to the special offers at all the Trail stops throughout 2020.

The Comfort Food Trail Pass is only available with the purchase of a 2020 Comfort Food Cruise ticket.  The 2020 Comfort Food Cruise highlights classic comfort foods served up in locally-owned restaurants over 3 weekends in January.  With the new Comfort Food Trail Pass you will continue to enjoy great dining deals all year.

Whether it feels like home, or it’s your first time in our neck of the woods, there’s no better way to explore the region than on a cruise through the Hocking Hills. Enjoy the beauty of winter while indulging in some of your favorite comfort foods. For six days, you can taste these dishes all around the region. Go for the gusto and try to taste all in a day or take a leisurely tour and take as long as six days. Best of all, there are plenty of things to do in Hocking Hills. At the first guilty twinge, just set out for a hike on one of our trails toward a popular site such as Old Man’s Cave, Ash Cave, Rock House and Conkle’s Hollow, Cedar Falls and Cantwell Cliffs. In addition to using some of that comfort food fuel, you will be treated to a feast for the senses as you pass cave walls covered with ice beards and waterfalls frozen in suspended animation.

Tickets are $20 each.  $5 of every ticket book sold will benefit local food pantries.
