Hudson Valley vendors will also be in attendance, including playful clothing by Selma Karaca of Beacon, landscape photography by New Paltzer Larry Chapman, handmade jewelry created from recycled plastic bottles by Stephen Fabrico and more will be in available. There'll be craft demonstrations, such as blacksmithing with Marsha Trattner, wheel-thrown pottery with Vicente Garcia, canoe carving by Larry Benjamin, engraving and embossing with Chong Lim, and interactive leatherworking with Janice Stewart-Hibbard. Saturday, June 24 from 10am to 6pm and Sunday, June 25 from 10 am to 5 pm. Tickets $10 adults, $9 seniors, and $4 kids. (845) 331-7900.
