Tuxedo Ridge Ski Center, aptly referred to as the “Little Mountain That Could” is continuing to use it’s beautiful surroundings to it’s advantage, by hosting many musical events, including the Mighty High Music Festival next weekend.

With 3 days of nationally touring bands, including Dark Star Orchestra, The Machine, John Popper, Railroad Earth, and many more; the Mighty High Music Festival, sponsored by Tuxedo Ridge Ski Center and Create-A-Vibe promotions has music for fans of all genres and all ages. With over 20 bands on 2 stages, there’s over 8 hours of music daily, all outside reverberating off the beautiful mountains of Tuxedo, NY. The full lineup and set times can be found at www.createavibe.com.

The festival features many other aspects besides music too, with plenty of food, art, and apparel vendors, a kid’s tent (including face-painting and games), yoga classes, and much more. The pub and kitchen at Tuxedo Ridge will also be open, offering plenty of drink and lunch specials throughout the festival. Guests are also encouraged to camp on-site and enjoy the scenery of Sterling Forest.

This is the 3rd year of the Mighty High Music Festival at Tuxedo Ridge and the expected turnout is in the thousands. Past performers at the festival have included From Good Homes, New Riders Of The Purple Sage, The Felice Brothers, and New Paltz reggae sensations The Big Takeover.

Rob Cannillo, resident singer-songwriter and events coordinator of Tuxedo Ridge, whom has also performed at the Mighty High, is constantly working hard to bring quality music events to the Hudson Valley. Tuxedo Ridge Ski Center will host the 6th Annual “Rock The Mountain” Music and Arts Festival in September. The lineup is yet to be determined, but past years featured national acts along with a local showcase of the area’s most talented bands including Stueudabakerbrown, Evazan, Lockjaw, and Sugarloaf Station. Rob Cannillo and Tuxedo Ridge will also be continuing their “Dinner and a Show” concert series, which features a full buffet dinner and dessert, along with a showcase of a Hudson Valley area musician or band for just $20.

Tickets for the Mighty High Music Festival are $40 for Friday, $50 for Saturday, $40 for Sunday, or $100 for a 3-day pass with camping.
