Artists, Authors, & Sponsors needed!

City of the Hills Art & Music Festival returns to Main Street Oneonta NY this summer! Saturday, August 5th 2017, 10 am – 4 pm.


Thank You, SPONSORS!!!

We couldn’t do it without you! Thanks so much to the Chenango Arts Council, Destination Oneonta, and Community Bank. You guys ROCK!

This project made possible with public funds from the Chenango Arts Council’s Decentralization Program, a re-grant program of the NYS Council on the Arts, with support from Governor Cuomo and the NYS Legislature.

This Summer! Back on Main Street!

2016 marks the return of the City of the Hills Festival to a summer event (Saturday, August 6th) and to its former location on Main Street in downtown Oneonta, NY.  We will be joined by the vendors of the Oneonta Farmers’ Market, and several Main Street businesses will offer COH specials. Come join the fun!

We are so grateful for our 2015 sponsors!
