Calendar of Saugerties Events
The Hudson Valley Garlic Festival™, a fun-filled celebration of the garlic harvest, is in its 29th year this year. It is presented by the Kiwanis Club of Saugerties. All proceeds go to worthwhile community causes.
The festival is usually held the last full weekend of September. But this year, it will be held Saturday, September 30th and Sunday, October 1st.
The location is Cantine Field in Saugerties (Mile Marker 101, NY State Thruway). For GPS purposes, you can use the address 207 Market Street, which is the Senior Citizens Center, right next door to Cantine Field.
A good plan for how to spend your day . . .
Tickets are $10 at the gate for a single-day pass. Children under 12 are admitted free, when accompanied by an adult.
Advance tickets are available for $7, at select locations, and for $5 for seniors 65 years of age and older. See http://www.hvgf.org for details. Tickets are also available online at that Web site, typically beginning in late August. They are available right up until the festival (except for online tickets which are available only up to a week before the festival, to allow for mailing time).
Vendor applications can be found here. If you see last year's applications there, check back in a week or so, and eventually, they'll be updated for this year's festival.
