The Caverns, Art and Partying like Family at Hookahville [Told In Photos]

Labor Day Weekend was the 48th Hookahville at Zane Shawnee Caverns. This biannual event brought together all walks of life and brought together the Hookahheads, who are all like family. Not only was this a festival, but you could enjoy nature and the natural creations on the land.

For sixteen dollars, you could tour the caverns on site, and they were breathtaking. The tour was about 45 minutes long and you learned different facts about the caverns and what the original explores called each rock formation.

This is the original painted map from when the caverns were discovered.


Besides exploring the caverns on a tour, you could take a hike on trails surrounding the festival grounds, enjoy vendors, kids corner for the kiddos, and enjoy time with family and friends in the camping areas.

At a coffee vendor on site, they provided a chalkboard for fans to create art together.

And what everyone came to the festival for, the music! This year’s line-up was extra special with guest performers to honor John Mullins, who passed away this past June. Mullins was an original member of ekoostik hookah who later left the band. John would have his own set at Hookahville to perform songs he had written and songs that stuck with fans.

Thanks for the memories, Hookahville! See you in 2018.
