Shop from a wide variety of unique craftsmen from around the country selling handmade speciality goods. Sample delicious food and drink offerings that will suit any palette, from your favorite fairground fare to delectable desserts.

Immersive Theater

The Van Rensselaers of Cherry Hill are elite among the ranks of old Albany’s blue-blood families—but when financial crisis strikes the Gilded Age household, it is clear that things are not as they seemed.

An environmentally immersive theater project, “Swept Clean” will bring audiences into intimate encounter with the past through the authentic setting of Cherry Hill and a script—written by Dr. Krysta Dennis—based on the manuscript holdings of the museum. Swept Clean is directed by Janet Hurley Kimlicko and produced by NorthEast Theatre Ensemble. Costume design by Brittney Belz. The play will take place in rooms throughout the historic house. Along the way, guests will be led up and down two flights of stairs. Please be prepared for walking and standing, and wear comfortable shoes.
