August always feels a little bittersweet as we try to enjoy every minute of what is left of summer and know that September is looming. We realize that back-to-school is just a few weeks away, so we really try to embrace this summer wonderland with all we have.

August is the perfect time to float down the rivers of the Western Catskills in New York State, and enjoy unforgettable chats around a roaring outdoor fire.

It’s also a time to experience the fairs and festivals that have been synonymous with the end of summer in the Great Western Catskills. Looking for a small-town experience with big time fun? We recommend visiting us during Andes Community Day. Ready to experience carnival rides, a cowboy circus, a demolition derby, and a pony pull? The Delaware County Fair is what you are looking for.

Primed for a day of enjoying sausage, local beer and cider? Then the Annual Hobart Rotary Sausage and Brew Fest is just right for you. These are just a few of the yearly events that make up our August, so we always suggest you check out the full list of events on our website to learn about everything taking place in Delaware County. We hope you’ll consider spending the last weeks of summer with us. And it’s never too soon to start looking ahead toward your fall getaway or winter adventure. is the place to start your planning.
