Get Excited for HOOPLA!


Guys I am SO EXCITED for this post because I have some fun news. On the last weekend of September (September 29-October 1) Devils Backbone Brewing Company is hosting Michael and I for their Hoopla Festival! The weekend will be full of really fun activities! We'll be camping all weekend and you can too or you can just purchase day passes (I'll link the information to the website below) if you don't want to camp. Hoopla is a FAMILY FRIENDLY EVENT and is suited for all ages and kids under 12 get in fo' free. All the adventures are FREE for Hoopla ticket holders except for the Beer Dinner*. Some of the events are below:

Friday: They'll have a local brewery tour and tasting and Backpacker Magazine will be guiding a local Nelson County hike!! There will also be an AT Through Hikers panel hosted by Backpacker Magazine and a campsite cooking challenge. Also there will be a corn hole tournament.

Saturday: You can start your morning with yoga or go on a guided mountain bike ride. For kids there will be a instrument making workshop, face painting, fairy lantern making and a s'mores & caramel apples event. Also there will be a pumpkin painting and tie dye workshop.

*The Brewmasters Dinner with Jason Oliver will be Saturday night and if you want to go to this dinner tickets are $125 per person; all proceeds for this dinner will benefit the Nelson County Pantry, an organization in Nelson County that is dedicated to assisting Nelson County residents who find themselves in need of food assistance. The dinner will be an intimate setting. 

Sunday: Start your day again with a guided mountain bike ride, yoga or a guided family friendly hike on the Devils Backbone Basecamp Trails. There will also be a 5k Trail Fun Run and Yard Games all afternoon long.

Every day there will be lots of beer events going on (duh) and tons of food as well as lots of live music. You can get all information for the festival below:
