Hello Weekend! Wait, Hello Labor Day Weekend! Don't let this summer pass you by without one more getaway, and celebration of summer. Labor Day is just around the corner, and we’re sure you’re looking for fun things to do for the long weekend. Butler County, Ohio has got you covered with live music, donuts & biking, festivals, and more. Here's your guide to Labor Day weekend 2018.
Groovin' on the Green
Get a jump start on Labor Day fun! Classic rock band, Thunderbay, will get things started on Thursday evening at Village Green Park.
Luau Patio Party
Celebrate summer’s final sendoff with a festive luau on The Coach House’s back patio. This Hamilton gem will come to life with music from the Sunburners, a renowned steel drum band. The drinks will be ripe with fresh, tropical flavors that compliment a dinner menu with delicious dishes like Mahi Mahi, Jerk Chicken, Mango BBQ Shrimp, Pineapple Rice, and more.
A summertime holiday feels incomplete without a plate of BBQ to go along with it. Combs BBQ is often referred to as the best barbecue in the state. With a reputation like that, they’re impossible to ignore. The nachos with layers of pulled pork, onion, cheese, sour cream, jalapeños, and more savory goodness are enough reason alone to visit.

Have a seat among friends inside Rivertown’s massive industrial taproom while Jeff vs. Luke, an animated cover band plays all your favorite songs.
