FREE: Troy River Fest On River Street, 6/20/15

June 10th, 2015, 10:00 am by Greg

Formerly known as the River Street Festival, the 12th annual fest has been re-named the Troy River Fest, although it will still be held on River Street. The fest will take place from 11am-7pm on Saturday, June 20.

This year the festival is placing a key emphasis on locally crafted hand-made goods and local cuisine – all located throughout Troy’s scenic, historic downtown district. While the streets will host craft, art, food vendors and entertainment – each shop, restaurant and historic venue will have their own activities and entertainment as well. And, of course, it’s all FREE.
