Give a Catskills town a chance to celebrate spring and it'll do it with gusto. The village of Margaretville is hosting a brand-new garden-themed festival this weekend, and it's going to be jam-packed. There will be a petting zoo, a birdhouse-building workshop, free face painting, a seed exchange, and performances by Story Laurie & Ira McIntosh and the Catskill Mountain Boys.
There will also be tons of booths manned by local businesses. You'll be able to taste spring wines at the Margaretville Liquor Store, pick up free seedlings at the Greatwoods Farm booth, buy a "seed bomb" at County Weekend, pick-up Magnolia-scented home products at the Bed & Bath Shoppe, catch a free lecture on "Eating for Energy" at Ashram on Academy Street, and meet publisher Julia Reischel at our very own Watershed Post booth.
We're proudly sponsoring the festival. See you there!
GardenFest, Magaretville Main Street, 10am to 3pm Saturday April 21. For more info, click here.
