Taste of the Catskills Festival
OCTOBER 9 & 10, 2021, Delhi, NY
open both days at 10am rain or shine!
To Taste of the Catskill Lovers,
It is with heartfelt regret that we inform you we must cancel Taste of the Catskills 2020. This is particularly sad as we’ve continued to improve and achieve better events each year, culminating in our 10 Year Anniversary last year. We hate to break the momentum and we are committed to making an impact locally for farms, artisans and small business. This event is a Fall tradition and an income source for so many in our area; much during these difficult times.
We’ve spent a lot of time working with the Department of Health and other state agencies trying to figure out ways to hold a smaller/ revised event in a safe manner. Ultimately NYS determined that it wasn’t possible, so doing anything close to what one would expect at Taste of the Catskills was not going to happen. We would not able to host most of our staple offerings and activities. For those yearning to do something fun this autumn, we share your pain and sadness.
Please support our local farmers, artisans, and businesses in any way you can over the coming months. This is a difficult time for everyone and our vendors, sponsors and both our businesses have been severely impacted by this pandemic.
Thank you for your support and patronage over the past 10 years! Stay safe and mark your calendars for next year Taste of the Catskills October 9th & 10th 2021 because we are going to be back BETTER THAN EVER!
All the best,
Abby, Lauren, Jay, and Jonah
The Taste of the Catskills Festival is a family-friendly event that showcases the food, beer, crafts, and wine of our region. With a variety of vendors including farmers, value-added food producers, and restaurants, attendees learn how food travels from farm to fork during a fun-filled autumn weekend on the grounds of Maple Shade Farm, a family-run farm in Delhi.
Saturday’s events will culminate with a harvest dinner paired with craft beer, prepared entirely from local ingredients. Weather permitting, there will be a bonfire during the day.
There are lots of kid’s activities each day. The activities will highlight life on the farm. The Catskill Puppets are on the grounds both days with their larger than life creations. Arm-of-the-Sea Theater will be presenting a preview of their brand new show on Saturday.
Workshops each day teach attendees tricks for farming, cooking, brewing, and vintning.
The main activities are held under tents and in the barn, so the show will go on RAIN OR SHINE!!!
