Hudson Project Festival may draw 20,000 a day

In a few days, thousands of people will descend upon Saugerties to take part in The Hudson Project music festival at Winston Farm. And while those thousands of people are expected to stay on site several days, local officials and the festival promoter said the disruptions to the surrounding community should be kept to a minimum. In fact, they have repeatedly said the number of concert attendees is equivalent to the number of visitors the annual Garlic Festival attracts each of the days it is in operation. “This is a big event for Saugerties and may include 20,000 festival goers, including those camping on site for three days and those attending on a daily basis,” town Supervisor Gregory Helsmoortel said in a statement. “The town of Saugerties and Ulster County have been working with MCP Presents, the Colorado promoters, for several months to ensure a smooth and safe concert for those attending and for the community as a whole.” Jonathan Fordin, president of MCP Present…

The Fourth of July Parade will be held on Friday, July 4 at 11 a.m. on Washington Ave. Line-up starts at 10 a.m. A veteran’s division has been organized to pay tribute to all World War II veterans on the 70th anniversary. All World War II and Korean War veterans are invited to be part of the parade, riding in jeeps, cars or trucks of the WWII era and it’s expected that each veteran will be announced as they pass the reviewing stand. All veteran’s posts, detachments or units of any kind from the surrounding counties are invited to march with their post colors.

Saugerties’ Benjamin unveils book on Hudson Valley history

“Early shafts of a red dawn rise on the eastern horizon, penetrating the sky as if wounding it, tomahawk-style… The great river’s form appears as a slightly arching shaft indented by a few protruding landforms, freckled with marshes and a few scattered islands. Let us say that in the center of this lush landscape a human form appeared more than 10,500 years ago.” The passage is from page one of “The History of the Hudson River Valley: From Wilderness to the Civil War”by Saugerties writer Vernon Benjamin. More than 18 years in the making, this extensively researched book is a comprehensive history of the early Hudson Valley, part one in a planned two-part series. Benjamin guides us from the Paleolithic period through the incursions of Henry Hudson and the Dutch settlement of the New World, the Revolutionary and Indian Wars to the growth of commerce through the Civil War. Within the pages of this history, Benjamin explores the geology of the river as well as its multi…

Concerts planned for Woodstock ’94 site in 2014

The Electric Daisy Music Festival might be out at Winston Farm, but that doesn’t mean there won’t be something happening there in 2014. In fact, according to Winston Farm representative Jeremy Schaller, there are several events in the works for the farm, which last saw music in its midst during the Woodstock ’94 music festival. Although he did not provide many specifics about the upcoming events, Schaller did mention an “arts and music festival” scheduled for mid-July of next year. The proposal will be presented before the Saugerties Planning Board on Tuesday, Nov. 19 (7:30 p.m. at the Senior Center) and the Town Board during its regularly scheduled meeting, the following night at 8 p.m. Schaller was tight-lipped about the details of upcoming events at the Farm, saying he didn’t want to “let the cat out of the bag” before making his presentations to the boards. Other possible future events include a yoga festival and an unnamed jam band festival. Some of the proposed even…

The 4th Annual Village Invasion Zombie Crawl 2013

SAUGERTIES, NY – Oct 19, 2013 – For the fourth year running, the Village of Saugerties will be the site of the East Coast’s ultimate zombie-themed event. The brainchild of Captain Cruella—a.k.a. Saugerties’ own Jaimee Moxham--the Village Invasion is bigger and better than ever, and poised to take the Hudson Valley by storm on Saturday night, October 19. Over the past three years, thousands of zombie fans from all over have outfitted themselves in their undead best to take to Partition and Main Streets in the heart of town, share their mutual love of ghoulish goodness, and enjoy local pubs, restaurants, shops and other businesses. Just like last year, the event is officially sponsored by the Village Apothecary. Neil Smoller of the Apothecary has helped raise the Invasion to higher levels than ever before. Admission to the event is $2—and this year, like last year, a portion of the proceeds will be directed toward rebuilding and revamping Small World Playground, a local spot fre…

From Peace, Love & Music to PLUR: EDC Eyes Woodstock Festival Location

Insomniac Events has been working on securing Winston Farm, the site of Woodstock ‘94, as the location for its 2014 Electric Daisy Carnival in New York. Organizers presented their ideas for the Memorial Day Weekend festival last week to the Saugerties town board, which seems supportive of the project in general. Insomniac, still waiting for the apporpriate permits from the town, is proposing a three-day camping festival with four to seven stages, art installations, carnival rides, and food and drink stands. Unlike Woodstock ’94 which hosted over 350,000 guests, Insomniac says it would cap attendance at 75,000. The past two editions of the New York iteration of the festival were held at MetLife Stadium in Northern New Jersey and CitiField in Queens but Insomniac hopes to move the party to upstate New York. On relocating the festival, Insomniac founder and CEO Pasquale Rotella stated, “What’s great about this, is when you do destination festivals you tend to get a much better …
