Adopt a simplified version of the food pyramid for a day and get to the good stuff—meat, cheese, fruit, vegetables, and booze. The Hudson Valley's best chili chefs, cheesemakers, and cider producers collide in gastronomic harmony at the Henry Hudson Riverfront Park in Hudson on October 10 from 12-4pm. Held during the annual ArtsWalk, visual artists and artisanal food vendors work side-by-side for a day of tastings, entertainment, and live music from Thunder Ridge, with a side of kid-friendly entertainment. The 8th-annual Hudson Valley Bounty Chili Contest will crown this year's best chili chef, while masterfully arranged cheese and cider pairings will sate the pickiest palate. Bring the kids, your dancing shoes, and a hearty appetite for a day of indulgence in the finest fall fare.
