Celebrate Stephentown 2019 Is Coming August 16-18
Greetings from Celebrate Stephentown HQ:
Three months from today we’ll be kicking off Celebrate Stephentown 2019, the third annual edition of our town-wide, grassroots festival here in Stephentown, New York.
More than two dozen events are already in the works with our farms, businesses, churches and service organizations all working together to present three special days of family-friendly fun.
We’ll announce more schedule details in June, but in the meantime, please mark the third weekend in August on your calendar and keep your eyes open for future updates.
A great way to find out more about what we do and why is on social media, where we’d be glad to connect with you on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram.
Thanks so much for your interest and support; and we can’t wait to show you all the things we love about living here in “the only Stephentown on Earth.”
