This year's event will be taking place at the incredible Griffis Sculpture Park in Ashford Hollow, NY, which is one of the largest and oldest sculpture parks in the US, and really needs to be seen to be believed. There is no camping at the park, however there is camping about 3 minutes down the road. The cost for the festival is $10 per day.

From the website:

"Slyfest is an annual collaboration put on as a fundraiser for the Slyboots School of Music and Art, newly located in Downtown Buffalo, NY. Our work involves cultural arts education through avenues of world music, dance and art. We strive to expose students of all ages to master musicians, dancers, performers and artists as a way to inspire creativity and foster respect for all humans in our global village. One of the key components to the Slyboots approach is our presence in elementary schools, high schools, colleges and universities across the country."
