The Hudson Valley Cheese Shop Crawl

There are very few universal truths in this world. Water is wet, the sky is blue, and nobody dislikes cheese. Think about it. Is there anyone you know that actively dislikes cheese? We're not talking about people who say they can’t eat it because it gives them the tummy rumbles. Those people deserve our pity and compassion. We're talking about someone who says they don’t care for cheese in general. They admit this in public! They just wander around, missing out on the world’s favorite food group, telling people about how they don’t like the smell of it, or the texture or the obvious joy it brings to a person’s life. Also, they prefer cloudy days to sunny ones and their favorite color M&M’s are brown. It sounds

Yes! It is fall, fall, fall! Upstate, that means that everyone gets an extra bump in energy. The constant sugar-high from all the apples, apple cider doughnuts, and artisanal mac and cheese on offer everywhere plus the crispy air makes for what feels like a brisk six weeks before the holidays set in. Our favorite events take place in late September and October. Everywhere you go there is a tasty treat to be had and a trail to take that is wonderfully different this time of year. This isn't an exhaustive list of what's going on in the coming weeks (by any means) but these are our recommendations for getting the best taste of the region and the season.

Shake out your cashmere crewnecks (we're not ready to commit to the turtlenecks yet), and get ready for the kaleidoscopic of events that accompany the shifting colors of the leaves in early fall here. From the vibrant harvest festivals like Saugerties' Garlic Festival that pay homage to the bounties of the season, to art walks that give art lovers the chance to explore the towns of the region as they drive while gaining an understanding of the lives and homes of the local artists they admire, September and early October in the Catskills and Hudson Valley promiss an enriching tapestry of experiences to choose from.

The quaint town of Woodstock, NY, has long been celebrated as a mountain enclave of creatives and artists. Beyond the iconic music festival (which, of course, was not actually held in Woodstock), Woodstock is famous for its charming Village, centered around the green that we're named for (Coldwell Banker Village Green Realty), and its art scene. One of the nicest ways to enjoy Woodstock is by planning a day around visiting as many of the art galleries both in the village and outside as you can while taking breaks to visit the carefully curated retail shops in town and one or two of the restaurants (tacos anyone?) and/or stopping for desert (ice cream?). We've listed 13 galleries that are generally open and easy to visit knowing

Intro To Fencing

Where: Goshen, NY

Let's start with something completely out of the ordinary! Fencing isn't exactly a common hobby - but it's cool! This is fencing derived from the study of books and treatises of historical fencing masters from Europe. HOW could that NOT be interesting? Plus...swords! Kudos to the Goshen Public Library for having this niche event on their calendar.

Maureen Squires: Fascination

Coldwell Banker Village Green Realty’s Red Hook NY Real Estate office is proud to present the paintings of Maureen Squires in an exhibition titled Fascination as part of our "Gallery At Work" series. Squires' work is open for viewing 9-5 daily in our Red Hook office through September 15th, 2023. 

"This exhibit represents fascination. First with words, making them look as they mean by choice of color, placement and script. Second, explosions of color as shown by the Hubble Space telescope. Infrared images that inspired me to try to capture these 'moments in time' that were no more immediately after they were attained, as nothing remains static in deep space." - Maureen Squires

The Catskills and Hudson Valley have events upon events upon events in the summer. This is in no way an exhaustive list of what's going on in Greene County, Ulster County, Columbia County, Dutchess County, and Orange County.
