Vendors include Earthgoods, Synergy Systems, falafel from Big Cheese, and Japanese noodles and sushi from Gomen-Kudasai. In addition to the food and dancing, the festival plans to promote safer and greener living as well as stopping nuclear actions. Free. August 7. Rain date, August 14. 1-9pm. New Paltz.
