The Hudson Valley Rail Trail and the Walkway Over the Hudson State Historic Park are hosting the Walktoberfest Farmers and Makers Market—a celebration of the bounty of the Hudson Valley, featuring a curated selection of the area’s finest producers—on October 1 and 2, from noon to 5 p.m.
With more than 120 vendors located throughout the Hudson Valley Rail Trail and the Walkway’s Ulster Welcome Center Plaza, Walktoberfest will feature not only farm-fresh products; food from local restaurants; and beer, wine, spirits and cider samples in a designated tasting area, but also art installations, live music, locally made goods, a special area for children’s activities and more.
Walkway Over the Hudson State Historic Park and the Hudson Valley Rail Trail will remain open and accessible at no cost as usual throughout Walktoberfest.
Cost: General admission (excluding the tasting area) is free. Tickets for the tasting area are $25 for those ages 21 and older and include full access to beer, wine, spirits and cider samples from more than 20 area purveyors. Discounted admission is available for Walkway members, veterans, active-duty military and senior citizens 65 and older. Children do not need a ticket to enter the tasting area when accompanied by an adult. For more information, including a full list of vendors, or to purchase tickets, visit Walkway.org/Walktoberfest.
