Remsen, N.Y. - The 2019 Remsen Barn Festival of the Arts kicked off in Remsen to a huge crowd on Saturday.

Thousands lined Main Street for the 40th year in a row in the small rural town about 20 miles north of Utica.

Vendors from all over the northeast lined a very long section of Main Street.

Many of the vendors were selling their art and crafts, and many others were selling some very popular food items like fried dough, kettle corn, and here's one for you, cheesecake on a stick.

Donna Miller made the drive up to Remsen from Clayville once again this year as she does every year. She says this weekend is something she looks forward to for many reason, "Because there’s so many different things to see. And the food, I have to eat my way all the way through."

Handing out this year's festival pamphlets to those who enter the festival were two middle school students from VVS who are part of the Future Farmers of America program in the district.

One of them, Zach Adams of Vernon, says this is his first year and he loves it. He says he does this volunteer work for points, "For points because we actually go on a lot of trips with our FFA and the more that you work you get a bunch of points and the more points, the less you have to pay to go on the trips."

The Remsen Barn Festival of the Arts is open on Sunday from 10:00 A.m. to 5:00 P.M..
