Rosendale Street Festival

About The Festival

The Rosendale Street Festival is a family-friendly, not-for-profit grassroots organization that was started in 1978 to showcase local talent and to celebrate the birthday of Rosendale icon, Uncle Willy.

Today the Street Fest continues this tradition and has evolved into a two-day event that closes Main Street and boasts 6 stages, over 70 bands, over 100 of the best vendors in the Hudson Valley, a dance party, kids crafts, and short films.

This is an entirely volunteer-run event, and proceeds go to supporting the music departments of the Kingston, New Paltz, and Rondout Valley School Districts. For more information, including parking, shuttles, and festival rules, click HERE.
