A Family Gathering

Friday, Aug 6th – Tuesday, Aug 10th

Ashokan’s 2021 summer Music & Dance Gatherings will be a chance to relax, recharge and restore. Join kindred spirits for guided nature hikes, outdoor mini-concerts, and jam sessions led by top musicians plus impromptu adventures and fun. The schedule will be “dry erase” to provide an opportunity for staff and campers to create workshops and informal musical get togethers. We’re excited about the possibilities that will open up by providing time and space for new ideas and onsite spontaneity.  *Small but mighty staff to be announced soon!*

STEP 1: Book your on site lodging in our comfortable private rooms and limited occupancy longhouse. You will need to enter group code AFG21. For lodging assistance please call 845-657-8333 x30

The Ashokan Center builds community through shared experiences in nature, history, music and art. For 40 years we have hosted traditional Music & Dance Camps at our 385 nature preserve. In 2020 we learned how to host them online. In 2021 we are reimagining how to gather in person. 

Come join the Ashokan family to celebrate, learn, connect, deepen your music, make new friends, and brighten your day. Our events are open to all folks, all ages and all orientations.
