From 2003 to 2009, Otis Mountain Music Festival brought together world-renowned bluegrass acts for an unforgettable weekend each and every year. 4 years since the last festival, a next generation of friends and family of Otis has stepped up to the plate to deliver a more diverse line up, but also staying true to its roots, featuring top notch bluegrass intertwined with acts of all genres. We aim to create a weekend long commune bringing good people of all ages together through music, activities, positivity, and happiness. So come get down with a little bit of everything. Run into your neighbors. Make some new friends. Have fun with the Otis family.
The setting is a beautiful old community ski hill in Elizabethtown, NY with picturesque views and great camping spots.

Save some fuel, ditch your car, and GET DOWN with AmTrak. The Westport station
is a mere 15 minutes from Otis Mountain with trains arriving daily. The Adirondack Route stops at all stations from NYC to Montreal and if you're coming from New England or western New York, you can transfer at the Albany-Rensselaer station before heading to Westport.
We strongly encourage that everyone minimizes or, if possible, eliminates their fossil fuel consumption. To help you do this, we will do what we can to organize transportation to-and-from the Westport station but feel free to organize your own ride shares with other Otis go'ers on our Facebook page.
