The City of Hudson, Columbia County is about 100 miles north of New York City and has become a gathering place for many artists; including performing artists, transmission artists, literary artists and visual artists.
Summer festivals and fairs have always been the linchpin of most summer seasons, celebrating all that is summertime. In that very spirit the City of Hudson announces its first annual Hudson Summerfest to be held at Henry Hudson Riverfront Park in the City of Hudson. One would be hard pressed to find a more perfectly scenic location, with views of the river, the Catskill Mountains, and within walking distance of all that the City of Hudson has to offer in unique shops, restaurants and lodging. Bring family and friends to this affordable outing and spend the day savouring Summer.
Summerfest will feature live music, and audience engaging performances by the Bindlestiff Family Cirkus. Food and beverage vendors providing the best of our local resources will be organized by the FarmOn! Foundation. There will be a crafts and maker tent to showcase the work of local artisans.
Visit the Summerfest Family Day at the Hudson Area Library Tent and join the excitement for a day of family fun. The Library will have their own tent to provide author/illustrator readings, origami demonstrations, collage making with Etsy makers, and more. Fun for the entire family!
Not only will SummerFest celebrate the diversity of all that Hudson has to offer, it will also serve as a source of fund raising for several of the organizations that take such great care in fostering creativity, citizenship, and community solidarity. Each year a select group of non-profit organizations will be chosen to participate in the festival, and all festival proceeds will be donated to these organizations to support their youth programming. This year the beneficiaries are the FarmOn! Foundation, Bindlestiff Family Cirkus and the Hudson Area Library.
So, mark your calendars and come share in what will become one of the annual events for Summer festivities in the Hudson Valley: Saturday, August 19, 2017 from 11am until at 7pm in Henry Hudson Riverfront Park in Columbia County, NY.
