Sunday July 16
The Music Festival of Rosendale, Inc. is a not-for-profit, grassroots citizen organization that comes together for the purpose of continuing the legendary Rosendale Street Festival for the multiple benefits it offers to our community and the Mid-Hudson Valley as a whole.
The festival is held on Main Street, Rosendale, New York each July for two days to boost the local economy and boost community interaction. It is also produced to help support and expose people to the local music of our region. In the event that the street festival is profitable, it is dedicated to helping fund scholarships for a graduating senior from the Kingston, New Paltz and New Paltz School districts.
The Rosendale Theatre is proud to be one of the six stages of the festival as well as a cooling station. Come on in and get a refreshing beverage in our tavern and catch some wonderful local talent! Vintage movie posters will also be for sale!
