New Paltz is home to a variety of restaurants ranging from fine dining establishments dishing out spins on classic European fare to pizzerias open well into the early hours of the morning to serve the students that stumble in. Chances are, even if you live in New Paltz, there’s an eatery you’ve never tried. But at the 25th annual Taste of New Paltz festival at the Ulster County Fairgrounds on September 19, attendees will have the chance to experience those restaurants that have evaded their taste buds for too long. Well over 100 vendors will be featured, with 25 beer and wine bars alone. Jamaican Choice, Main Street Bistro, Gadaleto’s Seafood Market , and P&G’s are among the participating local restaurants, while eateries from neighboring towns like Diego’s Taqueria and Brotherly Grub BBQ will also be featured. For just two or three dollars a pop, samples of menu highlights will be available from 11am to 6pm. A rare beer experience is also open to adults for $25 ($20 if purchased in advance) that features exotic beers from around the world. Proceeds benefit the New Paltz Regional Chamber of Commerce and its community project. The festival is family-friendly, children 12 and under admitted free. (845) 255-0243; Tasteofnewpaltz.com.
