Woodsmen’s Festival at Hanford Mills
By: Kelli Whitman (Townsquare Media Intern)
The Woodsmen’s Club from the SUNY College of Agriculture and Technology at Cobleskill are going to be showing off their lumberjack skills at the Hanford Mills Museum in East Meredith on October 15th. This is an all-day event, beginning at 10 a.m. and running all the way until 5 p.m. Every year, the Woodsmen’s Festival celebrates the way in which people used to work with, and use wood. There will also be many other woodworkers demonstrating their crafts along with sharing information such as, Pure Catskills, the Watershed Agricultural Council, the Catskill Regional Invasive Species Partnership, and the American Chestnut Foundation. The event also features wood turning, coopering wood carving, and a portable sawmill. Local vendors will be present, selling food, maple products, cider, and more. Enjoy all of this, along with the country, folk, rock stylings of Bourbon & Branch. Kids can also participate in fun activities just for them.
The Woodsmen’s Festival is included with regular museum admission. Kids under 12 are free. For more information about ticket prices, visit www.hanfordmills.org.
