We are proud to share the latest Rosendale Event:

Rosendale Street Festival July 15 and 16!
1 Street, 2 Days, 7 Stages, 80+ Bands Live Theater and More! By Donation!

Rosendale, New York -The Music Festival of Rosendale 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. The first Street Fest took place in 1978, so we celebrate its 39th Anniversary this year!

Carrie Wykoff, musician, and festival co-chair states, “It’s great to bring the festival back this year. We had to take last year off because of construction on Main Street but this year we are back and bigger than ever. The festival is a donation driven event that needs the support of everyone. It costs a lot of money to produce something this size, even though the committee members and musicians all donate their time and talent. To keep the festival alive we ask everyone to be generous when you enter the festival and give what you can.”

Seven stages are featured at the street festival six outside and one inside The Rosendale Theater where the community choir BLOOM and the Youth Ensemble Theater will perform. There will also be a short film festival featuring films created by students of the Woodstock Day School and the Homeschool Film Club as well as a brief presentation from the upcoming original new musical “On a Midsummer’s Eve”.

The Street Festival will also feature a closing parade! It will take place on Sunday at 5:45 pm and will feature the Rosendale Improvement Association Brass Band and Social Club and POOK. The Street festival is a family affair featuring some of the Hudson Valley’s best music for kids including Dog on Fleas and will also have craft stations so be sure to bring your little ones! There will also be a few surprises (watch out for a flash mob or two).

Charlie Kniceley, musician and festival co-chair states, “The Rosendale Street Festival is a fantastic event for the whole family! We offer all styles of music showcasing some of the best music in The Hudson Valley. We are indebted to all of the musicians, business owners, and volunteers, as well as our stage sponsors – Liggan Insurance and Kimlin Propane and The Town of Rosendale who help us make this event a reality.”
