HarvestFest - All Day & All Night In Salem!

Why is this cow smiling?  It's the fourth annual Salem Area Chamber of Commerce HarvestFest!  Come to the strange and wonderful world of Salem Art Works (SAW) Saturday, Sept. 10 at 10am and get ready to party.  There's an all-day craft fair (with special children's area for fun activities), local produce and goodies , art activities and live demonstrations like glassblowing and blacksmithing.  Then, at 6pm there's the "farm to fork" dinner with - and people, we've been over this - the finest, freshest food on the planet.  This is Washington County, after all.  Al and Kathy Bain will be providing the entertainment (back by popular demand) and then there's the barn dance and...oh, just trust me.  It's a lot of fun and tickets are going fast, so pick them up at most any business in Salem or try your luck and just come out and see what all the fuss is about.  Ticket prices are - get this - $20 for adults and $6  for kids under 10. Tickets to the barn dance only are $10 per person or $15 per couple.  And did I mention the silent auction? See you there!

40 minutes East of Saratoga and a world away; the Battenkill Valley is a Cornucopia of Cool. No Interstates. No noise. No hurry. Called "The Tuscany of New York", the region abounds in farm-crafted cheeses, creameries, heirloom vegetables and specialty meats you can buy right off the farm. Art galleries that will amaze you. Scenery that will inspire you. And through it all runs the Battenkill River, an astonishingly clear and gentle water playground that also happens to be the toughest trout fishery in the U.S.A Like touring? There's a reason the largest pro-am bike race in America happens here. And don't get me started on the Revolutionary war history, or the “you won't believe what I found: antiques and shops.

AL BUDDE has a lot of interests in fly fishing, playwriting, canoeing (and tubing), history, shopping, dining, friendships and he counts himself among the fortunate few who have found a place where all of those things collide: The Battenkill Valley. He knows (almost) everyone here, and will be your personal guide to all of those hidden places, activities, sights and scenery it would take you years to discover on your own. Discover the Battenkill Valley. Have fun. Make new discoveries. Renew your soul. And start here!
