Jeffersonville Founder’s Day Oktoberfest | Kids Out and About Hudson Valley

Jeffersonville Founder’s Day Oktoberfest

Jeffersonville Founder’s Day Oktoberfest is a celebration of Jeffersonville’s German and Swiss Heritage.


It is held Columbus Day weekend,  Sunday, October 8th. Picture Main Street Jeffersonville decorated and packed with artisan vendors. Live music all weekend and delicious German and Swiss food and treats served at all 6 Main Street restaurants. Each restaurant offering outdoor seating and service so you won’t miss any of the action. As if that isn’t incentive enough, the two days are jam packed with some of the most entertaining events you could find!

We kick off the event off with our BYOB (Build Your Own Boat) Race. Hilarity is bound to ensue when each team takes it’s mark at the starting line in the Mill Pond. The themed boats are very impressive on land but… will they float?… which one will win? Meet us by the Mill Pond to join in the fun, or better yet, bring your own handmade boat! Some competitors will even grow their own giant pumpkin to hollow out and race in! The competition doesn’t end there.

Throughout the day here are tons of activities for families & children. Shop our unique artisan vendors, get your fill of German and Swiss Fare or choose from the many ongoing activities including horse and carriage rides, pony rides, bungee trampolines, games & prizes, face painting, inflatables, hair ribbon braiding, alpacas & felting projects, arts & crafts, live music, photo stations, great food and drinks and so much more!

The Oktoberfest Celebration is not to be missed!  For more information about Jeffersonville Founder’s Day Oktoberfest, to sign up for any of the contests, to become a vendor, to volunteer, or to ask questions please email us, call us at 845-482-5688 or visit our Facebook page, Jeffersonville’s Founder’s Day Oktoberfest.
