Summer Hoot
AUGUST 23-25, 2019

A 3-day music festival at The Ashokan Center 477 Beaverkill Rd Olivebridge, NY 12461 (20 min from Woodstock.) The Summer Hoot is your source for family fun in nature, local food and crafts, and lyric-laden, foot-stomping, soul-soothing, fiddle-infused live music where the Catskills meet the Hudson River Valley.

Discover your new favorite bands, try your hand at blacksmithing, visit the sheep, go on a group hike to Cathedral Gorge, camp in a tent, sleep in a bunk, play music under the stars, sing by a campfire, learn to square dance, improve your juggling, participate in some cool music & dance workshops, see a film, bond with the trees, meet our craft vendors, eat local food, drink local beer and cider, try a hula hoop, see an old friend, make a new friend, sing an old song, and get inspiration for a new one.

Gates open Friday at 3:00 for folks who would like to come set up their tents and get comfy. Our "Pewter Posse" donors are invited to a kick-off happy hour with refreshments & tunes by Jay & Molly in the Pewter Shop Friday at 5:00pm. Food vendors start dinner around 6:00. Breakfast is vended indoors at 8:30-10:30am Sat/Sun and food vendors sell lunch, snacks and dinner 11am until late. Blacksmithing is noon-4pm Sat, Kids Zone activities run noon-5 Sat/Sun. Sunday everything wraps up by dusk. Email with any specific questions. Thanks! See you at The Hoot!!  :)
