Upcoming Festivals at The Ashokan Center

Advance tickets are available for the 5th Annual Summer Hoot at Ashokan, featuring a full weekend of world-class live music, local food beer, cider, crafts, jamming, singalongs, hiking, black-smithing, square dancing, activities for all ages and memories to last a lifetime.



To give back to our local Hudson Valley community, we offer pay-what-you-want tickets at the gate. Advance tickets guarantee entry and parking and range from only $25-$45 per day or $75 for the full weekend! $200 Pewter Posse tickets help sustain the Hoot and entitle donors to a VIP musical reception on Friday at 5pm with Jay & Molly and friends. Volunteers and kids under 12 always come for FREE!

All proceeds benefit our work here at The Ashokan Center!

New this summer:

  • We’re teaming up with ZeroToGo, a local, educational waste company, to reduce waste & improve our composting/recycling at the Hoot! Passionate about this? Volunteer or buy a Pewter Posse Donor ticket to help fund this green effort.
  • We’re welcoming Aidan Ferris and Earth Guardians to create “Hootopia” a new outdoor workshop space in the trees. Aidan and her cohorts will lead empowering, environmental workshops for all ages on Sat/Sun afternoon.
  • Our beloved Ashokan Center staff will be leading new team-building games in the kids zone and leading a pond ecology walk and a kids’ canoe adventure. Blacksmithing and hikes Cathedral gorge are still happening as well!
