Join us as we celebrate 40 years of Ashokan Music & Dance Camps!
Jay and Molly, family and friends invite you to share in the celebration and memories at any or all of the Ashokan Always benefit events in Ithaca, New York City and Boston. Since 1980, musicians and dancers have come to the magical woodlands of the Ashokan Center to share traditions, develop skills, and build friendships.

Jay and Molly, along with special guests, will perform at each event, which range from jams and dances in Ithaca to elegant cocktail receptions in New York City and Boston. Ruth and Mike Merenda will join Jay and Molly in New York and Boston.

Introduce a friend who’s new to Ashokan or come to see old friends. Either way, you’ll have a great time!

Please visit the Donate page to learn how donors of $350 or more and Benefit Patrons may request complimentary tickets. Funds raised will help Ashokan continue to grow and ensure that Music & Dance will still be supporting and inspiring musicians for the next 40 years and beyond.
