What to do this weekend: Opera, Germans, festivals, and two kinds of 'stocks

Phoenicia is festooned with banners celebrating this weekend's Festival of the Voice, which starts tonight. Photo via the Festival of the Voice Facebook page.

We're skipping our blurbalicious event roundup this week to put out some fires in other parts of the site, but we know that we can't leave you hanging. Our Catskills Event Calendar is fully stocked for this weekend with festivals, concerts, tastings, exhibits, so be sure to scan it for ideas of what to do.

Some of our favorites are Phoenicia's Festival of the Voice, a three-day multi-stage festival of world-class opera singers in Ulster County; the Grahamsville Little World's Fair in Sullivan County; the German Alps Festival in Hunter, Greene County; and two different kinds of -stock festivals in Delaware County -- Arkstock in Arkville and Cockstock in Bovina.

Adding your own event to the calendar is free and easy -- you can include photos and edit it at anytime. Anything happening in Greene, Sullivan, Ulster, Delaware, Schoharie and maybe a little bit of Otsego county is fair game -- to get started, click here.
