For Bobcats enjoying an Athens summer (or seeking an excuse to visit campus), we recommend checking out a few of the best summer pastimes.

Fourth of July Celebrations

From free admission to the new Athens City Pool to a Fourth of July parade, celebrate all over town on the fourth. After a day of independence around Athens, skip over to Nelsonville for the 24th annual “Thunder in the Valley” fireworks display.

Music all over town

From performances at the iconic Dairy Barn to Athens-staples, like The Union and Casa Nueva, there’s no shortage of musical entertainment.

History and walking

Ever wanted to know explore the grounds of the Ridges and or learn the history of Uptown? Join an outdoor walking tour.

Popcorn and AC

Southern Ohio promises heat and humidity—and sometimes your best bet is to go indoors. Enjoy the line up of classic flicks at Athena Cinema’s “Beat the Heat” summer movie series. This week, The Goonies!

Athens and the surrounding region promise an long list of activities and fun over the coming summer months. Visit the city events page to see the full calendar.
