More to Do at the Festival

Music isn’t the only thing you can experience while attending the festival, the Ashokan Center has so much more to offer. Camping is available while attending the festival, so you can easily make your way back to bed when each night ends. You can also go on hikes to the popular Cathedral Gorge, woodlands that run along Esopus Creek, see the sheep and learn about blacksmithing.

If you’re still looking for music after the lineups are over, you’re in luck. The Ashokan Center is filled with a community of musicians and music lovers alike.
