THE VENUE

The Ashokan Center

We’re excited to get to take over the beautiful Ashokan Center for the conference. The center is nestled in the foothills of the Catskills, along the Esopus Creek which feeds into the breathtaking Ashokan Reservoir (where NYC gets its water from). The center is fully featured with a grand hall for the talks, lodges for accommodation, workshops for crafts (including a blacksmith), and many outdoor eating and lounging areas.

The main accommodations are “Long Hall” style, meaning comfortable, adult size bunk beds arranged in long halls. Think summer camp, but much classier. If you’d prefer something more private, we’ll be arranging a number of options for off-site rooms that we’ll be selling as separate tickets.
