Ulster Ballet Company to Host Fezziwig Festival

Come out and join in some pre-holiday  fun as  the Ulster Ballet Company  hosts its second annual Fezziwig Festival at 10 First Street in Saugerties, New York. on Saturday, October 3rd, 2015, from 11 a.m.-3 p.m.  (Raindate is Sunday, October 4th at the same time.)


The Fezziwig Festival is a free community event featuring local  food, craft and merchandise vendors, a place to begin that holiday shopping.  Members of the Ulster Ballet Company will perform excerpts from their upcoming production of “A Christmas Carol.”  Come and enjoy the balloons, face painting, music, and surprises. 


And while there, be sure to purchase your 10 Week Club Drawing ticket for some great prizes throughout the holiday season, with the first drawing on October 4th, 2015, in order to raise funds for company performances.  Two prize tickets will be drawn weekly, with twenty-one chances to win.  After each drawing, all the tickets will be returned to the pool of tickets for the entire ten weeks.  Each weekly prize is a $25 value, with the grand prize totaling $500.


Drawings will continue until December 6th, following Ulster Ballet’s final performance of “A Christmas Carol”.  Weekly winners will be contacted by phone and announced on the www.ulsterballet.org website.  Winners do not need to be present.


Tickets are $10 each and can be purchased in the following ways:

    At First Street Dancewear, 10 First Street, Saugerties, NY 12477

The 10 Week Club is a Ulster Ballet Company fund-raiser.  The Ulster Ballet is a non-profit organization dedicated to bringing quality dance to the Hudson Valley.  The popular performance of “A Christmas Carol” in December, and the company’s annual Festival of Dance in March, both at UPAC, are two ways that the Ulster Ballet Company works toward this goal.  Your purchase of a 10 Week Club card will help keep the Ulster Ballet on its toes!  The Ulster Ballet Company thanks you for your support.


And be sure to SAVE THE DATES for the Ulster Ballet Company’s upcoming 2015 performances of “A Christmas Carol”:  Friday, December 4th at 7:30 p.m.; Saturday, December 5, at 4:00 p.m., and Sunday, December 6th, at 2:00 p.m. at the Ulster Performing Arts Center, 601 Broadway, Kingston, New York.  Ticket prices are $22 for adults; $18 for Seniors and UPAC/Bardavon members, and $15 for children 12 and under, and groups of 10 or more.  Tickets can be purchased through UPAC.org or Ticketmaster.
