It's music and cultural festival season in the Catskills, bringing country music superstars, big name bands, and today's hottest performers to center stage during three major music festivals – all within two hours of NYC. Or visit for the summer's lineup of cultural events and happenings!
Summer is for Dancing & Riding in the Mountains
Dance to country music's chart-topping songs, revel and reel during Grey Fox Bluegrass Festival, and TAP into New York during the state's longest running craft beer and fine food festival. Featured events such as Irish Arts Week, art gallery exhibitions, historic tours and on-the-slopes gatherings, make the Great Northern Catskills one of the Northeast's top destinations for entertainment. After all, there's more than one way to get your adrenaline pumping!
The Great Northern Catskills are more than a scenic mountain destination two hours north of Manhattan; they're the scene of grand music festivals, competitive races, and holiday events where you can ski with Santa and leprechauns, and motorcycle rallies that bring Harley lovers and BMW riders together amid colorful fall foliage.
Discover the Catskills top attractions during one of our unique festivals, from Hunter Mountain's Mountain Jam, to the Hudson-Athens Lighthouse tours.
