Woodstock Wednesday – The Rosendale Street Fair

by SirLady on July 17, 2013

Just down the road from Woodstock, is the little town of Rosendale.  It has become quite the artist heaven and artists can thank the Rosendale Street Festival for putting it on the map.  The fest closes down the main drag for two days (this weekend) and showcases 74 bands!

If you live in the Hudson Valley, you are no stranger to this festival.  If you live elsewhere, perhaps you are inspired by this festival and can mimic it in YOUR home town; why not?!

The mission statement of the festival is all about community:

The Music Festival of Rosendale, Inc. is a not-for-profit, grassroots citizen organization that comes together for the purpose of continuing the legendary Rosendale Street Festival for the multiple benefits it offers to our community and the Mid-Hudson Valley as a whole.

The festival is held on Main Street, Rosendale, New York each July for two days to boost the local economy and boost community interaction. It is also produced to help support and expose people to the local music of our region. In the event that the street festival is profitable it is dedicated to help fund scholarships for area youth so they can attend music summer camps, help provide special needs instruments for qualified area students and provide scholarships to area youth attending music schools.
