Oct 7, 2017
11:00 AM until 11:00 PM
OctoberFeast returns to the village of Chatham, NY on Saturday, October 7. Events will be held from 11:00am-11:00pm. Voted Best Fall Community Event at the 2017 Best of Columbia County awards, the village-wide celebration of fall and the harvest season is now in its second year.
This year we are working to make it even more fun. We’ll close the street to vehicles, which will allow people to walk up and down Main Street (voted Best Shopping Block) and enjoy all that the Village has to offer.
Main Street will be lined with picnic tables where visitors can sample from a v...ariety of freshly prepared foods and enjoy locally produced beverages. There will be two stages of live music: one outside Chatham Brewing (voted Best Local Brewery) featuring Brian LaPointe, Eli’s Gin, and Side Show Willie (voted Best Entertainer), and another stage by the Clocktower featuring 2 Blue and Abby Lappen.
A chili contest benefiting Columbia Pathways to Recovery (CPR) will be judged by Nancy Fuller of Food Network acclaim, Mayor Tom Curran, and Sal DeAngelo, District Superintendent of Schools in Chatham. Entry information can be obtained from Chatham Brewing, Beach and Bartolo Realtors, Willow and Oak, SomethinsGottaGive, and The Chatham Bookstore. Entry forms can be downloaded at VisitChathamNY.com.
It wouldn’t be an Oktoberfest without beer. Chatham’s hometown brewery will be pouring their version of the traditional lager, along with other favorites. A special cask of Barrel Aged Dopplebock will be tapped, too.
OctoberFeast is promoted by Chatham Area Business and Arts (CABA), a coalition of individuals, businesses and organizations, working to promote the Chatham, New York region as a vibrant, positive environment for shopping, dining, enjoying the arts and conducting business. The event is modeled after Munich’s famous 16-day festival which runs through the first weekend of October.
OctoberFeast details will be posted at VisitChathamNY.com and on Facebook.
