Nyack SpringFest Street Fair Set for Sunday, April 16
Nyack once again welcomes spring and launches a new season of fun for all ages with the SpringFest street fair on Sunday April16. Hosted by the Nyack Chamber of Commerce, the legendary fair runs from 10:00 am to 5:00 pm — rain or shine — in the heart of the village on Main Street and Broadway.
The fair invites families, friends, and visitors to browse a rich array of art, crafts, jewelry, clothing, accessories, gifts, and great food offered by 200+ vendors and scores of local businesses. Live music adds to the festive vibe.
“The Nyack Chamber is pleased to once again host the SpringFest fair,” said Roger Cohen, President, Nyack Chamber of Commerce. “This year’s fair continues the tradition of celebrations in Nyack – family-friendly fun in our special village on the banks of the Hudson.”
In addition to sampling wares from hundreds of fair vendors, Fest-goers can enjoy the many boutiques and restaurants that reside year-round in Nyack. Notably, the village has recently welcomed more than two-dozen new businesses – so there are lots of new shops and restaurants to explore.
“Hard times during the pandemic brought out the best in us,” said Cohen. “We’re back stronger than before, with new establishments already operating, and new doors ready to open in coming months.”
At latest count, Nyack is home to over 100 businesses, all within a walkable space of just over one square mile less than 20 minutes north of New York City.
“SeptemberFest is an event, but it’s also an invitation to visitors and residents to sample the village’s special blend of memorable experiences,” said Cohen. “We want people to come back after our events to enjoy shopping, dining, music, art, theater, hiking, biking and river recreation. Nyack offers it all.”
Nyack’s retailers offer unique merchandise across a broad spectrum of hard-to-find treasures, from antiques, custom jewelry and original art, to hand-made clothing, crystals, vintage vinyl, specialty eyeware and other products — many imported from sustainable sources in the U.S. and around the world.
Among the attractions for shoppers who like to marry a good retail tour with a good meal is the tempting array of casual eateries and fine dining establishments that put Nyack on the map as a center for food enthusiasts.
“Nyack is becoming a top destination for great dining in the Hudson Valley,” said Mark Davidoff, Chamber Board member and Director, Rockland Community College Hospitality and Culinary Arts Center. “Our village is a hub for both culinary arts education and for the final product — the best food on the plate for the discerning diner.”
“People want to live, work and spend leisure time in communities that offer unique shops, great restaurants, recreation and entertainment,” said Cohen. “Nyack fits the bill. We welcome everyone to SpringFest to explore and enjoy everything we have to offer.”
