Event Description

Trenton Falls Arts Festival

The 2013 Trenton Falls Arts Festival is taking place September 21st and 22nd. Following on the success of last year’s event, this year’s festival promises to be an even greater celebration of both Art and of Trenton Falls.

Trenton Falls, just a short drive north of Utica, was an important tourist destination in the 1800's. 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.

Pamela Underhill Karaz, one of the organizers for the event states, “This year’s Festival will feature a new exhibit of paintings, photographs and postcards from private collections of Trenton Falls from the 1800's to present day. There will also be a wide variety of fine arts on exhibit and for sale both inside the historic barn as well as outside on the stately grounds and an exhibit on the geology and paleontology importance of Trenton Falls. Outside there will be more great art, photography, pottery, jewelry, weavings, wood turned items, antiques, wine and cheese tastings, and more! We also have
cafe style seating for you to sit back and enjoy the live music and great food.”

Proceeds from the Festival are to benefit the Trenton Falls Association, the non-profit organization whose mission is to preserve and protect the Trenton Falls area.

The Festival is on the grounds of the historic Rust Farmstead at 396 Dover Road, Trenton Falls and is open from 9:00AM to 5:00PM each day, there is a $3 entrance fee, kids 13 and under are free.
