Caramoor History And Information
Caramoor is home to metropolitan New York’s largest annual outdoor music festival. There is nothing typical about an event at Caramoor. Listed on the National Register of Historic Places, Caramoor is a 90-acre historic estate in Katonah, NY with woodland trails, spectacular gardens, and a range of beautiful facilities available to rent for weddings, life events, family celebrations, corporate and education meetings, and retreats, photoshoots, corporate appreciation functions, and other types of events.
Caramoor is the legacy of Walter and Lucie Rosen, who established the estate and built a great house as its centerpiece. Their legendary musical evenings were the seeds of today’s International Music Festival that are held annually on the estate. Located in the greater metropolitan New York area, we are accessible to all area airports, highways, Metronorth, and hotels.
