The Empire State has a huge number of events taking place that might have slipped under your radar. Some of these are incredibly popular in the region but don’t find a place on the map. Here’s a compilation of some music festivals that should be on the list of music enthusiasts, artists and others looking to have a great time in general:
Nyack Spring Street Festival
The Nyack Spring Street Festival brings several other activities to a close due to its sheer size, with up to 30,000 people in attendance at the event. People come in from all over town and other parts of the Empire State to become a part of its festivities. The big numbers pouring in are greeted by local and national musicians jamming out as Main Street is taken over by the people. It’s a great platform for artists to showcase their talent and earn some rep across the circuit.
Woodstock–New Paltz Art And Crafts Fair Spring Show
The Ulster County Fairgrounds will be full of some incredible sounds come May as Woodstock–New Paltz Art And Crafts Fair Spring Show kicks into action. Beyond its 250 juried exhibitors and cash prize, a great attraction to the show is the host of talented musicians taking the stage. Artists from the local and national circuit represent their talent each year.
New talent is also welcome and gets a chance to shine on this prestigious platform. It’s a great event for families, pulling in big numbers every year.
New City Street Festival
New City Street Festival will take place in New City, NY this year in October. Expect the area to get packed as more than 10,000 people take to Main Street to enjoy the hustle and bustle. The management set up a stage for several regional, local and national musicians to wow the crowd with their prowess. Lots of new names and familiar faces appear on stage, with fresh talent making a name for itself around town.
Other attractions include an art competition as well as multiple attractions for children to stay entertained for the day.
Suffern Street Festival
Like other biannual festivals, Lafayette Avenue in Suffern is occupied by the public in April and September when Suffern Street Festival is taking place. Musicians from all over come to town play hits and entertain the crowd. Apart from the local and regional favorites, it’s a great space for fresh talent to make its mark and upcoming talent is appreciated in this area.
An overall well-rounded event with beer, amusements and a wine garden set up to ensure a good time for all visiting.
