The Woodstock New Paltz Arts & Crafts Festival by @quailhollowevents returns May 27th-29th to the Ulster County Fairgrounds in New Paltz, NY with more than 200 artists, plus live music, demonstrations, food, beer, wine and spirits, and a children’s tent. This Memorial Day
weekend marks the 80th show and 42nd year of this Hudson Valley staple!
The fair teems with handmade wares from carefully selected exhibitors in more than 10 media categories. Discover unique finds for the home, body and beyond — from wearable fiber art, to mixed media wall art, to hand-thrown porcelain table settings, large-scale garden fountains, dining room tables and everything in between. Visitors may find that long-sought-after Adirondack chair or a one-size-fits-one jewelry piece. An exciting new addition this Spring is @bar_fiore_flowercity, a vintage-inspired flower truck brimming with colorful whimsey and offering visitors an opportunity to create their own Spring bouquets.
A FESTIVAL FOR EVERYONE
Visitors will delight in ongoing craft demonstrations, a variety of small-batch artisanal and prepared-on-site foods and local wine, beer, and spirits. Live musical performances round out this broad celebration of handmade. The youngest attendees (and their parents) will appreciate a complimentary children’s craft tent, filled with a wide range of materials — many supplied by the artists themselves.
HANDCRAFTED FOOD & DRINK
Local wineries and distilleries and makers of specialty and prepared-on-site foods bring even more flavor and fun to the event. Sample wine and spirits, enjoy a beer while shopping or listening to music, and eat lunch under the stunning Shawangunk Ridge. Like the extensive assortment of crafts, the food lineup includes something for every taste and taste bud — from lobster rolls to tempeh Reubens, fried noodles, crepes and more.
