Let’s celebrate garlic! It is the 30th anniversary of the Hudson Valley Garlic Festival! The festival will be held on Saturday, September 29th from 10 am till 6 pm and on Sunday, September 30th from 10 am till 5 pm.

Follow your nose to Cantine Field in Saugerties, NY for acres of garlic farmers selling this year’s harvest, food vendors with scrumptious garlic offerings (including garlic ice cream and coffee!) and craft vendors galore. There will be day-long entertainment and special demos by chefs and garlic growers.

This morning we welcome Festival Chairperson Richard Kappler and Publicity Committee member Pat Praetorius.

Shout Out Saugerties is a new Festival of the Arts and Humanities that launches this month with more than 64 local and area artists and public figures participating. Over four weekends from October 6 through October 29, Saugerties joins communities across the country in the nation-wide National Art and Humanities Month that promotes culture in America. 

The 29th annual Hudson Valley Garlic Festival will take place this Saturday, September 30th from 10 - 6 and Sunday, October 1st from 10 - 5. Held at Cantine Veterans Memorial Complex in Saugerties, NY, the festival is a major fundraiser for the Saugerties Kiwanis Club.

Over 200 food, crafts, and garlic farmer vendors participate in the festival – there is live music, chef lectures, and garlic farmer lectures and a children’s area that includes a rock climbing wall.

This two day celebration of the yearly garlic harvest was started in 1989 at Pat Reppert’s Shale Hill Farm in Saugerties and has expanded from a few hundred attendees to thousands of garlic lovers enjoying each day.

Hundreds of vehicles were stuck in the mud through Monday at an outdoor concert site in the Hudson Valley after violent storms forced a three-day festival to end early.

    

  The Hudson Project is a new 3-day music festival from Michael Lang, the co-creator of the Woodstock Music & Art Festival. The festival will feature The Flaming Lips, Modest Mouse, Kendrick Lamar, a DJ set by Moby and so much more.

Winston Farm in Saugerties, NY will host four stages along with a 5th interactive performance area at the center of the site highlighting local musical acts and performance artists.

In addition to the musical talents, a wide range of interactive activities will keep attendees stimulated throughout the weekend filled with music, food, and camping.
