The Putnam County Wine & Food Fest is proud to announce the 9th annual event that will be held on August 10 and 11, 2019, at Mayor’s Park, 61 Fair Street, Cold Spring, NY. The two-day festival will have a Beer Garden; will highlight renowned cider, spirits and wine producers from Hudson Valley and beyond and will feature food, arts and crafts, plus local and international artists.

“The Cold Spring Area Chamber of Commerce is very pleased that the Putnam County Wine and Food Fest will be in Cold Spring this year” Kate Liberman, President, Cold Spring Area Chamber of Commerce said. “Interest in artisanal and farm to table foods and drink has continued to grow among consumers and as a vital economic sector of Putnam County. Cold Spring’s Mayor’s Park, with its beautiful views of the Hudson River and proximity to Metro North, is the perfect location to attract participants, locals, regional tourists and visitors from New York City” she noted.

Getting to the fest will be a breeze as patrons can take Metro North’s Hudson Line to Cold Spring, NY and the venue is within walking distance. You can also drive or take the Trolley from the Beacon or Cold Spring Metro North station. Parking is along the perimeter of the park or in the Municipal Parking Lot.

Event sponsors include Hudson Valley Wine Magazine, Hudson Valley Magazine, WAG Magazine and Metro North Railroad.

“I am particularly excited about the partnership we have forged with Metro North which will be offering riders discounted round trip and discounted admission tickets to the fest from July 1, 2019 through August 11, 2019. They will also extensively promote the fest on their website, Mileposts, employee’s weekly news, Getaway to the Hudson Valley, Connecticut and Beyond and more” event founder Lauren Drummond shared.
