For those who don't know, the Celebration of the Arts festival in Delaware Water Gap is one of those relatively unknown gems that makes it worthwhile to live in NEPA.

Take a look at the lineup - these are world-class musicians (many of whom live in the Gap and take the bus into NYC for gigs) and the festival has a really nice friendly community vibe. It's almost always excellent weather (though a couple of rainy weekends in recent years has made the festival fear for its finances). It is the weekend after Labor Day - Sept. 7, 8 and 9.

If you've never been and you love good jazz, with a great helping of blues and dancing usually provided by the last act of the night, you owe it to yourself to check out COTA. Added bonus: on Sunday, a full stage band made up of the very best high school musicians (who have to audition to make the cut) plays a set, and always blows us away.

(I have no affiliation but we've gone for over 10 years and my dad flies in every year from Seattle, he loves it that much).
