A huge spring festival is coming to the Walkway Over the Hudson
Spring is only a few weeks away. Longer days, good weather and the chance to get outside to shake off that nasty cabin fever. One of the events I’m looking forward to the most is Mayfest at the Walkway Over the Hudson. It’s a great weekend and a great way to support Hudson Valley businesses, suppliers and manufacturers.
Mayfest Essential Farmers and Makers Market
The Mayfest Essential Farmers and Makers Market features a curated selection of the Hudson Valley’s top growers, farms, distilleries, breweries, wineries, restaurants, artists, artisans and more on the Hudson Valley Rail Trail and the Skywalk at Hudson State Historic Park on Saturday, May 21 and Sunday, May 22 from 12 p.m. to 5 p.m. Vendors will display their products for tasting or purchase, allowing attendees to support multiple local agribusinesses in one location.
With over 120 vendors across the Hudson Valley Rail Trail and the Walkway’s Ulster Welcome Center Plaza at 87 Haviland Road in Highland, Mayfest not only offers farm-fresh produce, food from local restaurants and samples of beer, wine and spirits in a designated place. tasting area, but also art installations, local products, a space dedicated to activities for children, etc. All proceeds from Mayfest benefit the Friends of the Hudson Valley Railroad Footbridge and Trail. A great weekend for a great cause.
Tasting tickets are available now for the tasting area, and $25 wristbands include full access to wine, beer, spirits, and cider samples from more than 20 area businesses. Walkway members, veterans, active duty military, and seniors receive a discount on admission. General admission to Mayfest is free but does not include the tasting area.
