Be Careful!

On your way to the festival, drive carefuly. Obey all traffic laws. Make sure that your registration and inspection are up-to-date. And we highly recommend avoiding Exit 20 on the NYS Thruway - we are told that the Ulster County Sheriff will be setting up a safe driving checkpoint on Thursday on the way up to the mountain!

ALSO there will be two separate roadwork projects on 23A west of Palenville on route to site from the East, which have the potential to cause lengthy delays. We recommend considering alternate routes to minimize your delay getting to show. There are viable options using the Kingston Exit 19 off the NY State Thruway proceeding west on Rt. 28W to Rt. 214N in Phoenicia and follow festival signage.

Register your Wristband

Once you’ve got your wristband, make sure to register it! You can do so on the Taste of Country Music Festival App or online at TasteOfCountryFestival.com/Activate.
