Sleepy Hollow Lit Fest

Coming in May 2019, the 1st Annual Sleepy Hollow Lit Fest (SHLF) promises to be a lit fest like no other, for all kinds of readers and writers. 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. 2019 marks the 200th Anniversary of the writing of Washington Irving’s “The Legend of Sleepy Hollow”, a seminal work which touches on all four areas of interest. 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.
