The 40th Anniversary of the Remsen Barn Festival of the Arts is coming up Sat. and Sun, Sept. 28-29. Come play in the street with us. From its humble beginnings, when the festival included tours of local Remsen barns and handmade quilts, it has become one of the northeast’s premier Festivals, featuring crafts of all kinds, a farmers market, food for every taste and entertainment all day, both days.
You will find fun for the whole family fifteen miles north of Utica, just off Rt 12 in the little Welsh town of Remsen.  On Saturday, September 28 from 10-6 and Sunday, September 29 from 10-5, come play in the street with us.
    A tradition for 40 years, Main Street is closed to vehicles and transformed into a magical shopping, eating and entertaining adventure. More than 250 quality crafters offer jewelry, textiles, fashion accessories, woodcrafts, soaps, pottery, holiday items, furniture, glass, candles and more. A variety of food vendors offer everything from hearty meals to sweet snacks.
