Oktoberfest Handcrafted at Rhinebeck: A Family Harvest Celebration

The second annual Handcrafted Octoberfest will be held October 2nd and 3rd at the historic Dutchess County Fairgrounds in Rhinebeck, NY. This family-friendly fall fest brings together the handcrafted, artisanal and agricultural — from wearable fine craft and laudable fine art to the Hudson River Valley’s best brew, wine, specialty foods, apothecary goods and an abundance of harvest attractions. In addition to live craft demos and browsing rows of one-of-a-kind handmade furniture, jewelry, ceramics, glass, fiber art, and more, visitors interact with farm animals, partake in an agri-venture center and pumpkin contest, ride a horse-drawn hay wagon, and watch pumpkin carving by the master of the craft. And, of course, no Octoberfest would be complete without the season’s best beer, wine, spirits, gourmet specialties, and freshly prepared food.
