Airstream Festival

Hocking Hills, Ohio is a camping lovers dream come true. As a gateway to the Appalachian landscape, Hocking Hills delivers up the waterfalls, rivers, hills, caves, and canyons that provide a dynamic backdrop for a camping adventure unlike any other. For those travelers with a heart for camping fun and a willingness to take it to a different level, there’s no better time to make your way to Logan than the beginning of May when the Urban Airstream Festival comes to town.

A Different Take on Camping

In celebration of all things Logan and the John Glenn Astronomy Park, the city hosts an annual Airstream Festival for three days at the beginning of May as a way to draw crowds to this fantastic destination and have some fun too! The Airstream Festival sees the downtown streets of Logan closed to cars and trucks alike as a collection of Airstream campers move into town and take up residence instead. As Airstreams take their place along the perimeter of historic downtown, the area is transformed into a pedestrian mall where guests and campers can linger, laugh and have an amazing time. Airstream representatives are on-hand to help with questions campers may have and plenty of factory tours are lined up for a closer look at how these well-loved campers are produced and perfected.

Enjoy the Urban Great Outdoors

While it won’t be like waking up in the woods, camping at the Airstream Festival comes with its own unique sense of camping fun. Those who have reserved spots will wake up daily in the heart of downtown only to be met with an impressive lineup of musical performances, endless food trucks, and restaurants as well as a variety of family-friendly activities to enjoy. When you start to crave exploration, sign up for one of the many distillery and winery tours or jump on a shuttle bus for a tour of Hocking Hills that’s comprehensive, beautiful and educational. This event is highly popular and it’s recommended that those looking to camp downtown make reservations for their Airstream well in advance of May.

Camping Accommodations

If you end up camping for a day or two during your stay in Hocking Hills for the Urban Airstream Festival, you will want to know all about accommodations and features of the campgrounds. Attendees of the festival have the choice of picking to camp out in downtown or the fairgrounds; at this time there are no longer downtown camping spots for the 2022 Urban Airstream Festival. Fortunately, the fairground is only a half-mile away from downtown, making it extremely easy to get to and from downtown; quick walk or short bike ride will take you less than you know it! The fairground camping spots provide you with a variety of features such as running water, electricity, a dump station, showers, and restrooms. The fairground also features plenty of grassy green areas that is perfectly inviting for furry friends to join you during your stay. If you came to Hocking Hills to try out camping during your stay, don’t miss out on this great opportunity!

Places to Check Out

Part of the thrill of attending the Urban Airstream Festival is checking out Hocking Hills with avid campers such as yourself. The city is home to a variety of restaurants, shops, wineries, breweries, and distilleries you can visit for yourself. Hocking Hills Winery is an award-winning winery that features craft wine using locally grown grapes. These wines are unlike anything you have tried before as the soil in the area is able to grow special grape varietals. A visit to the winery is a must especially during around Urban Airstream Festival as the weather outside is perfect. Relax with a glass of your favorite kind of wine or try out a tasting flight that lets you try four or six different wines at once. Snack boxes let you have something to munch in between each glass you have.

If beer is your adult beverage of choice, make sure to check out Brewery 33. This lively brewery is a town hub as it features an outdoor beer garden with fire pits and a fun atmosphere inside. Handcrafted beers come in a variety of styles so there is something for everyone on the menu. Don’t miss out on their food truck schedule and live music taking place each week!
