In the face of all the tragic stuff going on in the country and the world at the moment, Hudson Valley music lovers and family-fun fans should take heart and take heed: For this weekend, after a one-year hiatus, the Rosendale Street Festival returns.

Started in 1978 (ostensibly) to celebrate the birthday of local legend “Uncle” Willy Guildy, the nonprofit, grassroots, volunteer-run event will once again take over the town’s Main Street for two days. This year boasts seven stages featuring more than 80 (!) live bands and several theatrical performances, as well as over 100 food and craft vendors plus parades, kids’ crafts, film screenings, and more. After its operating expenses have been met, proceeds raised by the festival will be donated to local kids music programs.

Here’s a peek at the fun of festivals past:

The Rosendale Street Festival will take place in Rosendale, New York, on July 15 and 16. The festival is free but a donation is requested. For more information, visit https://www.facebook.com/RosendaleStreetFest/.
