Sleepy Hollow Lit Fest launches an 18 month celebration of the bicentennial of Washington Irving’s The Sketchbook of Geoffrey Crayon. Save the date and stay tuned for updates!
Sleepy Hollow Lit Fest is a celebration of the art of writing and will showcase multiple areas of interest that connect deeply with this historic region–specifically horror, children’s books, historical, and contemporary literature. In addition, the festival strives to showcase the diversity of our community by featuring a wide array of voices and writers.
SHLF is no ordinary festival, but rather is a total celebration of the villages of Tarrytown and Sleepy Hollow, with events, readings, and panel discussions along the route of Ichabod Crane’s fictional flight from the headless horseman. This ‘Choose Your Own Adventure’ style of festival will allow visitors to personalize their experience, attracting a broader range of visitors to the day’s events, and highlighting area businesses.
When: Saturday May 18, 2019 from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.
Where: This one-day festival will extend across various venues from the historic Tarrytown Music Hall to the Burying Grounds of the Old Dutch Church of Sleepy Hollow.
