Caveat: this is not a complete list. It never is.
The Hudson Berkshire Beverage Trail Pasta Event (Pasta & Sauced) is happening right this minute, today April 21, 2012 from noon to five. Make it your lunch, or have a late afternoon snack. I did it last year and it was great; it snuck up on me this year. Don’t forget your growler.
Red Hook Strawberry Festival is sometime in the middle of June. We should always celebrate strawberries. (update: it’s June 16)
Mount Lebanon HerbFest is Saturday June 9 – Sunday June 10 – Shaker history + herbs! The Fest itself is Sunday 10am – 4pm.
Austerlitz Blueberry Festival 2012 – Sunday July 29th, 2012 – 9am to 4pm – RAIN or SHINE (they’re very emphatic about that).
Bangladeshi (Cultural) Festival – Sunday September 2, 2012. Snacks! You can read about last year’s inaugural fest here.
Bacon Fest NY – Sunday September 2, 2012 – 9am – 6pm. Seriously.
Taste of Hudson, Saturday September 8, 2012, lunchtime-ish on Warren below 3rd Street. Last year was fab, hoping for more of the same this year.
Hudson Valley Wine & Food Fest – September 8 & 9, 2012, 11am – 6pm on Saturday, 11am – 5pm on Sunday. Location: Dutchess County Fairgrounds, Rhinebeck NY. This is a big one.
Perhaps there will be a farm/harvest festival or two in September/October?
