The Mum Festival weekend actually begins with the preceding Mum Bowl, the Saugerties High School football game, where the coronation of the Mum Queen and her Court takes place.

The Mum Festival itself typically includes events such as

  • The Mum Queen and her court presenting flowers courtesy of the Saugerties Society of Little Gardens
  • Live music
  • Arts and crafts booths
  • Martial arts demonstrations
  • Face painting
  • An art contest

This year will be the 52nd annual Mum Festival.  Seamon Park is named after John Seamon, who generously donated the beautiful park to the Village of Saugerties in 1809.
