The fall season is an incredible time of year to come see Hocking Hills for the first or 10th time. The weather is starting to cool off and the leaves will soon be changing colors. The fall season is also a popular time of year for local communities to put on exciting events in the area. Albany is a nearby community that is just a short drive from many of our vacation rentals in the area. Albany has been putting on their Annual Ohio Pawpaw Festival since 1998, and this year will be no different. Take a look at what you can enjoy:
Festival for the Pawpaw Fruit
The Pawpaw Festival is named due to its dedication to the pawpaw fruit, also called Asimina triloba. As you walk around the festival, you are sure to see the festival mascot and know exactly what a pawpaw fruit is. The Pawpaw Festival is a weekend affair that is filled with fun and excitement for the whole family. You can expect live music performances, a craft beer garden, arts and crafts, contests, races, sustainable living workshops, and plenty more for the children. The festival takes place right on the edge of Lake Snowden, so you know the weather will be cool and the views will be great.
Purchasing Your Ticket
Getting your ticket to the Pawpaw Festival is as easy as showing up to the front gates. Entry is $15 per day for adults, or you can buy a weekend pass that is good for all three days at $30 per adult. All children 12 years or younger get in absolutely free. If you are over the age of 65 or a military veteran, make sure to save on your admission fees. Festival camping will be onsite for those who want a night under the stars. You can find the Pawpaw Festival taking place at 5900 US 50 in Albany. Call 740-698-6060 for any questions you may have.
