Live acoustical music by Kid Kurt Blues Band on Main Street, and several dozens local and regional artisans will display and sell their works at the festival, featuring delicious artisan cheeses, breads, condiments, and other hot and cold foods and artisanal beverages; ceramics, botanical and handmade soaps, fabric and textile objects, silver and hand-crafted jewelry, exquisite handmade objéts, and other distinctive goods.

The 2017 event also features Valatie author (transplanted from Paris, L.A., and more) Jamie Cat Callan, signing her book, "Ooh La La". And we are très hopeful to offer advance copies of the author's forthcoming book, 'Parisian Charm School'. Callan has published books on the subjects of relationships and writing, and has been featured in the "Modern Love" column in the New York Times. Her books have been published in twenty-one countries and have been featured in major magazines, including The New York Times, Vanity Fair, and Time. Jamie makes her home in New York's Hudson Valley at La Belle Farm in Valatie.
