2019 Festival Schedule


Every fall we attend many fairs and festivals selling our alpaca products and our organic garlic.  We only attend the best festivals our area has to offer.  Please consider coming to one or two, meeting us in person and chatting about our farm and the products we are proud to offer.  We'd love to meet you!

August 3 & 4 - Fox Run Farm Winery's Glorious Garlic Festival in Penn Yan, NY- This incredible festival takes place right on Keuka Lake at one of the area's most beautiful wineries in NYS.  You should visit this winery anyway, but it is especially inviting during their Glorious Garlic Festival where there is live entertainment, marvelous food (much of it inspired by garlic!) and craft and farm vendors from all over NYS offering you the finest in produce and handmade crafts.  We bring a full line of our alpaca products here.  Our knits by Diane Angie hats and our alpaca fur hats have been extraordinarily popular.  We missed this festival last year due to illness in the family, but we are excited to be back in 2019.  We look forward to seeing you!   Read more about the festival here - Fox Run Farm Glorious Garlic Festival

 

August 31 & September 1 - Vermont Garlic and Herb Festival in Bennington, VT - You couldn't ask for a better festival - live music, great food and fantastic vendors make it one you don't want to pass up.  Located just over the NY border in VT, this venue is serene and simple.  The food is amazing - again garlic themed.  We will offer our 6 different types of hardneck garlic for sale here as well as our full line of alpaca products.  We'll have a double tent to fit it all in!  Make sure you stop by and say hello.  To see more about the festival including a complete list of all the incredible food and craft vendors, visit VT Garlic & Herb Fest website.

September 21 & 22 - Harvest Festival at The Farmer's Museum in Cooperstown, NY - If you've never been to The Farmer's Museum, this is your opportunity.  It's like taking a step back in time.  There is a 19th century village as well as a museum filled with rural heritage from our area's farming communities.  This weekend the grounds are filled with tents that are filled with artists and farmers offering their fresh produce and crafts.  We will be in the tents with other artisans and crafters.  We'll have garlic for sale as well as the full line of our alpaca products.  To learn more about this event visit their website:  The Farmer's Museum

 

September 28 & 29 - The Hudson Valley Garlic Festival in Saugerties, NY - OK, it you're serious about garlic and food made from it, attending this festival at least once in your lifetime is a MUST!  It is the second largest garlic festival in the country ( the largest is held in Gilroy, CA)  There is an unbelievable variety of garlic to be purchased here and then everything made from garlic - pesto, seasoning and spice blends, jerky, etc.  There is even garlic icecream and garlic fudge offered for sale!  It is the ultimate garlic celebration.  Please look for our big white tent where we will be selling our alpaca products and a small red tent next to it where our 6 varieties of hardneck garlic will be offered for sale.  Come early as we usually sell out quickly!  Lots more info available at:   HVGF website

October 19 & 20 - The NYS Sheep & Wool Festival at The Dutchess County Fairgrounds in Rhinebeck, NY - if you've been to fiber festivals before (unless it was in Maryland!), you will be blown away by the size, scope and quality of this festival.  Fiber enthusiasts and fiber artists come from around the world - that's right - the world - to attend and to vend here.  The entire fairgrounds is devoted to all things fiber related.  There are barns full of sheep, goats, alpacas, and llamas.  There are fleece shows, shearing demonstrations, sheep dog trials, and absolutely everything you could ever want that is fiber related.  We are in a huge white tent just up from the Souvenir Tent and across from Building 22.  We bring everything - and I mean everything - we have to this event.  It's by far our largest and busiest festival.  We'll have our popular $15 Section as well as the highest quality sweaters and blankets, mittens, scarves, gloves, shawls, and hats.  If you're looking for alpaca socks, come to our tent!  We have the biggest and best selection of alpaca socks at the festival!  If you love fiber and have never been to this festival, put it on your bucket list.  You will not regret it!!  For more info:  NYS Sheep & Wool Festival

November 2 & 3 - The Ultimate Women's Expo in Edison, NJ at The Expo Center - This will be our first time attending, and boy-o-boy, are we excited!  There are 100s of pop-up shops, peauty pavilions, tastings, cooking stages, keynote speakers, massages.  It's the ultimate experience for women of all ages!  To make it an even greater weekend, The Great Food Expo is being held at the same convention center on the same weekend!  This one is going to be GOOD!!  If you're thinking at all about it, find out more here:  Women's Expo

November 30 & December 1 - Christmas and Crafts at The Turning Stone - We've been here before.  This is one gorgeous venue.  It's not only worth going because of the high quality crafts that are there (although this alone would be reason!), and the magnificant food available and, of course, the gambling, but the holiday decorations are knock-your-socks-off beautiful!  If you don't get into the holiday spirit after this show, there's no hope for you!  :)  Find our more here:  Christmas and Crafts at The Turning Stone

December 7 & 8 - The Holiday Market at Bethel Woods - We have been vending at this festival either on Saturday, Sunday or both days for 6 years.  We are just not sure which day - or hopefully days - we will be there in 2019.  Please check back.  As soon as we know, we'll let you know!
