The annual River Street Festival will return to Troy once again, a big outdoor party stretching and all along River Street from Fulton to Congress streets, filling downtown Troy with food vendors, more than 100 artisan crafters, lots of children’s entertainment and two stages of continuous live music – stretched all along River Street from Fulton to Congress streets.
The big bash takes place from 10am-5pm on Saturday, June 15, and admission is, of course, free.
Here’s the line-up of bands that will be performing:
The third annual Chowderfest on the 400 block of River Street (just north of the Green Island Bridge) in Troy takes place on Sunday, September 20 from 11am-4pm. More than 30 different Nippertown restaurants will be offering $1 cups of chowder with partial proceeds going to the Troy Boys and Girls Club.
But in addition to the food, there’s plenty of free music, too, and musically speaking, Chowderfest takes on quite a country flavor this year, as you can see by the schedule of performers:
11am: The Twisted String Band
12:30pm: Renee Lussier and Branchwater
2:30pm: Loose Cannon Live
This just might be the single busiest weekend of the year, so we really don’t want to hear a single peep out of anyone complaining that there’s nothing to do in Nippertown. Seriously.
Here are just a few suggestions:
