Don’t miss the 6th Annual Hudson Berkshire Beverage Trail Wine & Food Festival. It’s happening May 26 and 27 at the historic Chatham Fairgrounds. Hosted by the Northeast’s premiere beverage trail, the Festival is a showcase for craft beverage producers of wine, spirits, cider, and beer from New York, Massachusetts, and other nearby states. It’s a great way to sample the offerings of a diverse – and growing – collection of these producers all in one beautiful place.
The Hudson Berkshire Wine & Food Festival will feature the members of the Hudson Berkshire Beverage Trail, including Berkshire Mt Distillers, Brookview Station Winery, Furnace Brook Winery, Harvest Spirits, Hillrock Estate Distillery, Hudson-Chatham Winery, and Hudson Valley Distillers, as well as popular favorites Helderberg Meadworks, Awestruck Cider, Pazdar Winery, Montezuma Winery, and relative newcomer Milea Estate Vineyard. There will be lots of local crafters and tasty local foods to try and buy, including cheeses, meats, pickles, chocolates and more! Food trucks will be offering selections ranging from classic fair foods to International specialties. There’s plenty of entertainment for young and old alike. There’s even a petting zoo!
The historic Chatham Fairgrounds is the perfect location for the festival, as it provides a beautiful space that guarantees a good time rain or shine, plus plenty of free parking and bathrooms. For all these reasons, the Festival has been attracting large crowds since its establishment in 2012. Over 8000 people visit over the course of two days, making the Festival a celebration of cuisine and community.
Festival Hours are 11 am to 6 pm on Saturday, May 26, and 11 am to 5 pm on Sunday, May 27. General Admission is $10. Tasting Ticket Admission is $25 at the gate. Children 12 and under are free.
