Welcome to Taste of Country Music Festival
It's almost here! We're excited to welcome you to the Taste of Country Music Festival at Hunter Mountain Resort in the beautiful Catskills of New York!
We've been working hard to enhance your festival experience and safety for the fourth annual event. Here are some of the changes, along with a list of things to know as you arrive to the festival!
If you purchased a vehicle decal (Car Camping Pass, Parking Pass, RV Pass) and received it in the mail, apply your vehicle decal to the lower portion of your driver-side windshield and then proceed to the Entry Locations, listed below.
If you purchased a vehicle decal and need to pick it up, head to Will Call located at our off-site Box Office at Tops Friendly Market parking lot in Tannersville: 6350 Main St, Tannersville, NY 12485-7722.
If you are only picking up tickets, you may enter at the Tunnel Box Office on the festival grounds directly.

Take Exit 19 from the NY State Thruway, go west on Rt. 28 approximately 21 miles to the town of Phoenicia. Make a right onto Rt 214 and continue north approximately 11 miles to the Bear Creek entrance. NOTE: Bear Creek patrons who choose to enter from the north - off 23A - risk being detoured past the entrance, potentially delaying entry into the campgrounds.

Safety is our number one priority, and we’ve been working closely with the New York State Department of Health and new DOH regulations implemented to ensure our Tent Campsites are safe. This year, any grill inside the tent campgrounds is prohibited. We understand that's a disappointment, so we have created a designated grilling area for our Tent Campers, located up the hill, near the Samsung Base Camp in the Hunter Campgrounds. Staff will be present 5:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. on Thursday, and from 9:00 a.m. to 8:00 p.m. Friday through Sunday to light and maintain the grills provided. Click here for more details regarding the new grilling policies for campers.
As an Outlaw ticket holder, we have some exciting changes to our Outlaw area. This year, Taste of Country Music Festival introduces to you, our new Outlaw village. We've created better views, more room to relax, and faster, easier food and beverage lines for a remarkable Outlaw experience. If you have questions on-site, please visit our Outlaw Concierge, located at the entrance of the Outlaw Village. Click here for more details.
Tickets, parking and camping are still on sale for Taste of Country Music Festival! If you or someone you know is looking to purchase or upgrade their tickets, you can do so at the Box Offices, either in the Tops Friendly Market parking lot, or at the Tunnel Box Office.
