Summer Hoot Vendor Applications

Local food vendors and hand-made crafters please apply here.

Booking Policy

We curate two Hoots a year and do our best to create a mix of local, regional and national performers who are professional, kind, and will either draw or captivate a crowd (hopefully both!)  With a few exceptions, we prefer not to book anyone for more than 2 years in a row, for variety.  Our budget is small and we're grateful to all of our performers for partly donating their music toward the cause; The Hoots support The Ashokan Center, a beautiful music and nature preserve. Touring roots music bands who will draw a fun crowd and add spirit to the Hoot are encouraged to email Mike. Please include a local show where we can see you perform, one great live video link, and a very short note. Thanks!

Have questions about the upcoming Hoot? Call Ruthy or email her at If you’d like to receive info on upcoming Hoots and other Ashokan Center happenings, please join our email list:
