OKTOBERFEST ENTERTAINMENT SCHEDULE: COMING SOON…
BELOW: ENTERTAINMENT SCHEDULE, LABOR DAY WEEKEND – 2019
This Labor Day weekend, August 31-September 2, the Woodstock-New Paltz Art & Crafts Fair will once again host more than 300 independently juried artists and craftspeople from all over the USA at the Ulster County Fairgrounds. The Fair, renowned for its vast selection of handcrafted goods, gourmet specialty foods and the Hudson Valley’s finest wine and spirits, also provides entertainment in the Entertainment Tent –a perk included with the price of Fair admission. There will be more acts than ever this weekend with an impressive lineup of performers for every generation that should not be missed. The full entertainment schedule can be found on the Fair website (quailhollow.com), but here are some highlights:
The infamous Ratboy Jr. opens the show at 12:00 noon on Saturday, August 31st, with their unique brand of family-friendly entertainment. This fantastic two-man rock band performs catchy tunes with a side of fun onstage banter. Timmy & Matty have a knack for blurring the lines between music for kids and music for adults, so it becomes EVERYONE’S music. Be sure to bring your kids to this show.
The Myles Mancuso Band will take the stage at 3:45 pm on Saturday, August 31st. Noted by True Fire as one of the Top 10 Guitar Prodigies in the World, Myles has been performing professionally since the age of 10. He’s “rockin’ rhythm and soul” with a mix of traditional, Blues & Funk and New Orleans flavor. He has recently returned from performing in Key West, Florida, and is making his way to New Paltz via gigs up the East Coast. You won’t want to miss his exhilarating performance on guitar and vocals.
Bill Robinson’s Wildlife Show starts at 1:15 pm on Sunday, September 1st, with owls, hawks and turkey vultures. The tent is always full for the wildlife show with both kids and adults enjoying Bill’s vivid explanations of the birds of prey that live around us. He provides many “up close”photo opportunities as well as some participation for the kids in the audience.
The Velvet Weekend will be there on Sunday, September 1st, to rock the Fair at 3:45 pm. This New York City based rock band incorporates old-school influences to create a modern rock sound all their own. They have played throughout the east coast from the famous CBGB and The Bitter End in New York City, to Atlantic City – and now at the Fair!
Lara Grant, an exceptional fourteen-year-old from New Jersey, performs at 2:30 pm on the last day of the Fair, Monday, September 2nd. Lara has entertained audiences in New York, New Jersey & Pennsylvania on keyboard and vocals. A tremendously talented young musician, Lara covers a vast repertoire including Lynard Skynrd, Bob Dylan, Lady Gaga, Adele, Three Dog Night & many more.
