Summer in the Hudson Valley means endless amounts of events and festivals. We live in one of the most beautiful places in the world so it goes without saying that there always seems to be something fun to do.

Do you love the outdoors as well? I find myself looking for events that entail mother nature, sunshine and hanging out with people who have similar interests.

If you enjoy music, food and craft vendors then you have arrived at the most perfect blog post. There’s going to the Summer Hoot event which will be held outdoors. Not only will there be craft vendors, music and food but also activities and trails to explore.

The craft vendors will take place on Hoot Hill, the kids activities will take place at the kid’s zone. For the adventurous folks, you are able to explore the trails and even take a walk over to the historic covered bridge on site. For the hikers, bring your hiking boots to hike to Cathedral Gorge.

Upon arrival, you can follow the parking signs and then head to the Main Gate at the red barn. From there, you can check in or purchase tickets.

This event will take place on on Friday, Saturday and Sunday, August 27, August 28 and August 29, 2021 at the Ashokan Center located in Olivebridge. This will be the 9th Annual Summer Hoot.

This event will include 3 days of live music, being in nature and with the community featuring music groups by Nate The Great, The Mammals and The Restless Age.

You can find out more and purchase tickets here.
