Festival Fever: Troy’s River Street Festival, 6/16/12
Troy’s annual River Street Festival has hosted quite an impressive batch of performers over the years – from World Party to Cracker, from Paula Cole to Mike Doughty. Last year’s fest featured performances by Los Straitjackets, Blotto, the Neanderthals and the Graham Tichy Experience.
Troy’s largest street fest is returning again this year from 10am-5pm on Saturday, June 16, taking over River Street from Fulton to Congress streets. Approximately 100 artisan craft vendors are scheduled to showcase their wares, and there will be plenty of continuous live music on two stages, as well as a children’s stage. Admission, of course, is free.
Here’s the schedule for the main stage at the 2012 River Street Festival:
