You can also visit to see the history of this festival. This year 2008 is bringing up hookahville's 29 and 30. Not too many festivals can attest to having a longevity as hookahville has had. My opinion might be a little biased, as I have been to 22 consecutive hookahvilles. I always look foward to this every year, its a great time to see some great music, camp under the stars and see all your friends. I will be posting any new information as it becomes available.

Hookahville Golf Outing

* Format is teams of 4 people and this is a scramble (each team uses their best shot), shotgun start (everyone begins more or less at once at a different hole)
* There's a trophy for first place.....come on out and get ready for Hookahville!

Hookahville Motorcycle Ride
The Hookahville motorcycle ride to Hookahville meets at the High Beck Tavern on the corner of Beck and High St. in Columbus. Riders will meet on Saturday May 24th between 11AM and 1PM and ride at 1PM to Legend Valley. It's about a 30-45 minute ride.

If you are doing early bird camping - and who wouldn't be - you can bring your bike to Hookahville, camp Friday night and ride on over to the High Beck Friday morning. Lots of people do it....maybe even enough to have a mini-ride FROM Hookahville to the High Beck for the big ride....

High Beck Tavern - 564 S. High St - Columbus, OH 43215 - (614) 224-0886
