Join us on the Street at the Rosendale Street Festival

This weekend, Saturday July 21st & Sunday July 22nd is the 34th annual Rosendale Street Festival -Two days of music, food, and shopping fun to boost the local economy and further community interaction. Any profits go to music scholarship programs in local schools. 

The Rosendale Street Festival benefits not only the town of Rosendale, but the Mid-Hudson Valley as a whole.  The festival celebrates “our community”, which has all the benefits of a small town, but flows over the boundaries of town lines and can’t be defined by one zip code.

The festival also boasts great food, great music, and two days of fun for the whole family.

We'll be there too! On the corner of Snyder Avenue and Main Street.

We'll be selling 100% Organic cotton Victoria Gardens t-shirts in several different styles and colors (sizes small to 2XL).

As well as tanks.

Here are the girls modelling a couple versions.

Stop by our booth this weekend and say hello!

The versatile indoor/outdoor rugs are made of recycled plastic! They are safe for decks - quick drying and fade resistant. 

So easy to clean - just vacuum or hose off!
