Back for a 29th year the Taste of New Paltz will be held this Sunday (September 15th) at the Ulster County Fairgrounds on Libertyville Road in New Paltz. Having work on this event in years past I can tell you that it is truly a fun day for all ages and the food and beverages are top notch.

The New Paltz Regional Chamber of Commerce holds this annual event so that people can visit New Paltz, enjoy the area and experience some of what the New Paltz area has to offer. Enjoy a day of great food, craft beer, local wines and spirits, vendors, live entertainment and of course family fun. New This year is a car show.

Local businesses will be on hand at the business expo plus local restaurants and producers will be there for you to enjoy. Everyone from food trucks to craft vendors will dot the fair grounds from 11 AM to 5 PM. Make it a point to come out. Attendees can purchase $3 and $5 taste Tickets from the different food and drink vendors.And this year features a "Best of the Taste" competition which attendees get to vote for in three categories.

In addition to a bunch of kid’s activities like face-painting and arts and crafts, there will also be health & wellness practitioners, live music, and live demonstrations throughout the day.
