Handcrafted Octoberfest

This event has already taken place.Oct. 1, 10am–5pm.
$4.50-$13; free for children 5 and younger

This open-air event honors harvest time and slips in a few Germanic traditions, but is centered around the concept of handmade. And there’s something for every generation, taste and taste bud, from the Hudson Valley’s best craft beer, wine and spirits to one-of-a-kind goods by the nation’s finest makers and artisans, to seasonal grub, live musical performances and expert-led harvest activities. The festival offers a carefully curated collection of handmade goods in over ten media categories, complimented by a diverse selection of autumnal extras: fine art pumpkin carving by a nationally-acclaimed master of the niche craft, one of the STATE’S largest pumpkins (likely weighing in over 1,700 pounds), an educational petting zoo and animal show, family lawn games, carriage rides, craft demonstrations (fiber-spinning, woodworking and more), a drop-off children’s craft tent (with programming and creative free play), and ongoing live music.
