Summer Fests in Athens 2022

Athens Ohio is a great place to live in the summer. The city is much quieter, but there are plenty of concerts and special events to look forward to.

Nelsonville Music Festival – One of the biggest events of the summer is the Nelsonville Music Festival. This amazing event draws national performers, regional acts and large crowds every year. The pandemic changed things in the last two years, just as it did for everything. This year, it will be back in full force and promises to be a memorable event. The Nelsonville Music Fest will be held Sept. 2-4 this year, so it will be a little later than usual. The wait, though, will be worth it. Check out the website for information on the outstanding acts that will be performing this year.

Ohio Brew Week – Another annual highlight is the Ohio Brew Week. Held in Athens, Brew Week this year will be July 8-16, 2022. It is a full nine days devoted to beer! You can try different beers, listen to great music and enjoy this beer bonanza. Also, all of the events are a short walk from your apartment or rental house in Athens.
