Bigfoot will be swarming a small town just outside of the Hudson Valley this September.

We're no strangers to reports of Bigfoot sightings in the mid-Hudson region. In fact, New York is generally a hot spot for Bigfoot activity. Here in the Hudson Valley, there is even a research group dedicated to sightings and evidence.

Gayle Beaty and The Bigfoot Researchers of The Hudson Valley are braver than most and will investigate footprints, sounds, and even alleged sightings.

With that being said, there's an event this September for all Bigfoot enthusiasts and believers in Whitehall, New York. A quick 3 hour trip outside the Hudson Valley will bring you to the Bigfoot capital of New York State and the Sasquatch Calling Festival.

On September 24th at Riverside Park in Whitehall, New York there will be a handful of Sasquatch-themed events and speakers from 11 am until 6 pm. Guests will be treated to speakers indulging in local evidence, The Future of Sasquatch a Q & A and of course the main event...a Sasquatch Calling Contest.

What Does Sasquatch Sound Like?

I'm no expert, but from what I've read and heard...Bigfoot/Sasquash kind of sounds like Chewbacca.
