SpillianFest 2017 – Remembering Summer is a glorious celebration of mountain delight, world class food, and seriously fine music from artists who catch Spillian’s magic and toss it back out to us.
This year, a Spillian-style Catskills picnic to remember the perfect summer in the mountains, made of sunburnt noses, first loves, and nights of a million fireflies.
In those perfect summers of the past, friendships were stronger, the food was tastier and the music….ah, the music was the soundtrack to those days…burned into our heads with a connection that instantlly transports us back to more innocent times, when a good lyric could pierce our souls and a great riff could thrill us like a kiss.
On July 15, take a day, come to Spillian and let’s see if we can’t remind you a little of that magic memory we each have in our head…
Come and delight in the anthems of summer from…
…the incomparable Connie Mohar as he wanders the crowd with his accordion, playing your requests
… the fabulous Zydeco Revelators as they bring their own Cajun magic to old favorites from the bayou and beyond
…the one-and-only guitar phenom Dylan Doyle & the Delta Gypsies as they bring their superb roots rock & blues hearts to the songs of summer, live broadcast from Spillian on WIOX Radio!
Dance. Eat great eats, and wash away your cares!

Three years ago our first SpillianFest introduced the public to “The Meadow, ” our gorgeous outdoor stage built into the old stone foundation of one of the original Spillian buildings. It was a revelry attended by more than 500 guests. Since then our magical meadow has hosted weddings, workshops, and gatherings. This year at the meadow, we unveil the new Spillian retro camp photo booth for the best Instagram selfies ever.
A rare chance to stay at Spillian without claiming the entire facility for the weekend.
