Grafton Summer Festival

GRAFTON – After taking the year off due to the COVID 19 Pandemic, the original Grafton Summer Festival is back and hopes to be bigger and better than ever before.

The Festival is again scheduled to be held in the historic Grafton Town Park on Saturday, July 17, 2021. The park is located on NYS Route 2, one mile east of the State Park entrance.

For more than 30 years, the Grafton Summer Festival has been a tradition enjoyed by all the residents of Grafton, the surrounding towns and visitors to the area.

This year we are again featuring Civil War reenactors known as the Crenshaw Battery. There will be soldiers in authentic uniforms including weapons and equipment. At past festivals this has been a very popular exhibit. The people of Grafton have many ancestors who served in the Union Army during the Civil War and we’re very proud of that heritage.

Sister Kennan McGowan’s Memorial Giant Raffle will have close to 100 prizes with a growing monetary grand prize. Tickets are available from most parishioners of Our Lady of the Snow Mission and Our Lady of Victory Church. Tickets will also be sold all day on Saturday, July 17, 2021.

There will be a chicken BBQ to be served from 12:00 noon until 2pm, or when the meals are sold out. The dinners consist of ½ chicken, baked potato, coleslaw and dessert and can be enjoyed on site or for take-out. It is suggested that tickets for the dinner be obtained ahead of time and reserved by calling 518- 421-5070 or 518-953-0363.

The local Boy Scouts will be providing hamburgers, hotdogs, sausage and peppers and cold soft drinks. In the morning, coffee, donuts and other breakfast items will be available.

There will again be music and singing in the gazebo.

Since the inception of the Grafton Festival over 35 years ago, we have had a craft fair and flea market with vendors selling a large selection of crafts and exotic items, including antiques, collectibles, handcrafted jewelry and wood-working items. It is anticipated that 50 or more vendors will be participating.

The Grafton Community Library and the Grafton Historical Society will have booths, as will several other community organizations.

Our Lady of the Snow will offer homemade baked goods, including “mini” pies, cupcakes and numerous other sweets.

The festival provides the people and friends of Grafton the opportunity to meet their neighbors and the people who serve them in various volunteer capacities.

To join in the festivities, call 518-466-8555 for more information and registration forms as a vendor or participant.
