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 family-friendly, two-day event that closes Main Street and boasts 7 stages, over 80 bands, over 100 of the best vendors  in the Hudson Valley, parades, kids crafts, and film festivals.

This is a completely volunteer run event and proceeds go to supporting the music departments of the Kingston, New Paltz, and Rondout Valley School Districts.

The schedule is here.
