It's October, it's the Hudson Valley, and that means one thing-- apple festivals every which way you turn! And this weekend, in between your apple pies, apple cider, apple cider donuts, apple fritters, apple butter, apple bobbing, and apple picking, you can treat yourself to the bounty that is the vibrant craft community in the Hudson Valley.
On Saturday, come to historic Huguenot Street in New Paltz, NY for the Dutch Reformed Church's annual Apple Fest! Kathy from Gnorasaurus will have a booth there along with other top-notch local artists and an amazing array of homemade apple pies, apple desserts, apple fritters, fresh local apples and cider, caramel apples and more. There will also be live entertainment and a book & houseplant sale, with pumpkin painting, animal balloon-making and face painting for the kids. The hours are 10 am - 4 pm, and in the event of rain, the whole thing will be held inside, so how great is that?
On Sunday, get even more Hudson Valley Etsy Team artists with your apples at the Warwick Applefest in Warwick, NY, where Kathryn of Huzzah Handmade and Lynn of New Prospect Pottery will be selling their wares from 10 am until 5 pm.
