Attention Artists: 2013 Riverfest posterboards are now available for pick up.
Music, art, and the environment are the primary themes of Narrowsburg’s 23rd Annual Riverfest, held this year on Sunday, July 28, from 10 a.m. - 4 p.m., at the edge of the Delaware River on Main Street in Narrowsburg, New York. Presented by Delaware Valley Arts Alliance and sponsored by Catskill Regional Medical Center, the 23rd Annual Riverfest embodies the spirit of our river valley and highlights the artists who live and work here.
Riverfest’s distinguishing characteristic is the access it affords to the artists whose products are being sold. Everything at Riverfest is artist-made and the person who is selling it to you is the artist him/herself: broom makers; potters; jewelers; textile, wood, and glass artists; writers, and painters. Get a book signed or watch a chainsaw artist create a new sculpture, a potter throwing clay, or a fly tier making the perfect fly for the perfect catch.
Artists are highlighted most dramatically at the Riverfest poster auction that takes place at the bandstand at 12:30 p.m. The work of over five dozen artists, whose posters are created especially for the festival in every conceivable medium from watercolor to fabric to wood, are auctioned off by Jerry Malek. These beautiful interpretations are on display in the gallery windows of the Delaware Arts Center and National Park Service and can also be seen online at www.ArtsAllianceSite.org.
Music opens the festivities just before 10 a.m., followed by the ever-popular River Dogs on Parade. Pooches and pups strut their stuff at the bandstand, all hoping to win the “best of” awards, while emcee Kevin McDonough offers running commentary and the Dog Parade judges deliberate.
Admission is free. For more information call 845-252-7576
