Mountain Jam is a fantastic place for some family fun and offers a tremendous amount of activities and attractions for young Jammers throughout the weekend!
Children aged 10 and under are admitted FREE if accompanied by a ticket-holding adult. However, due to security concerns, we cannot admit more than 2 children under 10 years old per supervising adult (4 children per family). You may be asked to present proof of age (such as a birth certificate) if your child appears older than 10.
This year at Mountain Jam we welcome the Hunter-Tannersville Central School. The Ethel M. Slutzky National Honor Society will be present with their vivacious and talented squad of artists. This team of young talented artists will be heading up and managing interactive kids stations throughout the festival grounds. These stations will include the Tabularasa, Fairy House construction and Tipi building located in kids areas and the AV. The students work along side their mentor, Ritamary Montano-Vining. RitaMary relocated to the Catskill Mountains 20 years ago, she established a community in which art appreciation and creativity are pushed to their limits! With this groups upbeat and positive outlook on life, ALL will be inspired. Leave your inhabitations at home and join in the fun!

Now, imagine yourself within this world…A hero of Legend! The success of your quest depends on you alone.

Whispering Fairy Woods

It was once said that this area was used as refuge for snowboarders and skiers, however on Thursday evening during twilight a group of fairies appeared and started spreading their magical fairy dust all around. This caused an explosion in the fairy population and fairies are constructing homes and trinkets on Friday, Saturday, and Sunday from 11am-1pm in the AV and than again from 4-6pm in the CKC. We hope that you will fly over to join us!
High Pines of the Cozy Kids Corner- Friday, Saturday and Sunday 1-4pm
Native Americans are practical people with artistic expression. As a result, their inventions are commonly as beautiful as they are serviceable. The Sioux word tipi is formed of ti, meaning to dwell or live, and pi meaning used for; thus tipi means used to live in. Join us as we decorate a village with images from our vision quest and transform our community of tipi’s into an indigenous play land. Head dresses welcome please leave Tomahawks at Home.
