Event Description

The Trenton Falls Arts Festival, being held two weekends, September 29th, 30th and October 6th, 7th, 2012 promises to be a great celebration of both Art and of Trenton Falls.

Trenton Falls, just a short drive north of Utica, was an important tourist destination back in the 1800's with much history and geological and paleontological importance. The highlight of Trenton Falls is a series of waterfalls created by the West Canada Creek carving its way through millions of years old limestone creating what is called the Trenton Chasm. This series of picturesque Falls has been captivating artists since the 1800's.

The Festival will feature a private collection of paintings of Trenton Falls from the 1800's to present day made public for the first time, vintage photographs and memorabilia of Trenton Falls brought together for the Festival, a variety of fine arts featuring local artists some depicting the Trenton Falls area and others showcasing their specialty, and an exhibit on the geology and paleontology importance of Trenton Falls. While enjoying the art there will be wine tastings offered by some of NY State's premiere wineries and vineyards, artisanal cheese tastings, great music, food and more.

A portion of the proceeds from the Festival are to benefit the Trenton Falls Association, the non-profit organization that helps to preserve and protect the Trenton Falls area. The Festival is open from 10:00AM to 5:00PM each day, there is a $5 entrance fee. Check our website for a complete listing of events, times, and directions, www.trentonfallsfestival.blogspot.com .
