Taste of New Paltz
A DAY OF GREAT FOOD, CRAFT BEER, LOCAL WINE AND SPIRITS, VENDORS, LIVE ENTERTAINMENT AND FAMILY FUN, ALL BROUGHT TO YOU BY THE NEW PALTZ REGIONAL CHAMBER OF COMMERCE AND OUR SPONSORS.
This one-day food and drink event at the Ulster County Fairgrounds will celebrate local shops, producers, and restaurants. A selection of craft beverages will also be served.
It’s like a business showcase but better. It’s a full flavor of everything that is New Paltz—from restaurants to food trucks to craft vendors. It’s really a great way for the local community and for the people from outside of New Paltz to really get to see what New Paltz is up to in all realms of business.
Attendees can purchase $3 to $5 tastes from the festival’s different food and drink vendors. This is our 2nd year to feature a “Best of the Taste” competition in three categories—Best Food Truck, Best Restaurant, and Best Winery/Distillery. Attendees can vote for their favorite “taste” in each category throughout the day. Winning vendors are announced towards the end of the day. They get an award and bragging rights!
In addition to a bunch of free kid’s activities like face-painting and arts and crafts, there will also be health & wellness practitioners, live music, and live demonstrations throughout the day.
