The Sharon Springs Harvest Festival

10725178_987706204580181_2129342283_nAre you heading out to the Sharon Springs Harvest Festival on September 19th and 20th? Our last event in Sharon Springs was an Antique Appraisal Clinic for the Rotary in 2010, and we love seeing the renaissance that the area is currently going through!

Sharon Springs is located west of Albany and is surrounded by a beautiful landscape of rolling hills and winding valleys. The town is named after a number of mineral springs that are hailed for their healing and restorative properties. The bustling spa culture of Sharon Springs reached its heights during the 19th century. At its peak, Sharon Springs saw thousands of visitors each summer including such notable figures of the day as the Vanderbilt family and Oscar Wilde. However, tourists proved to be increasingly drawn to the mineral waters, horseracing, and gambling to be found in Saratoga Springs.

Each town often goes through cycles of revitalization and the many exciting festivals now located in Sharon Springs are a wonderful reason to visit this historic town. The Fabulous Beekman Boys, aka Josh Kilmer-Purcell and his partner Dr. Brent Ridge, are among the towns notable residents today. Known for their TV show now hosted on the Cooking Channel as well as a winning run on The Amazing Race, The Fabulous Beekman Boys own one of the many unique specialty shops in downtown Sharon Springs.

The 2015 Sharon Springs Harvest Festival looks like it will once again be a great day for celebrating the town and its history, as well as the talented regional craftsmen and craftswomen.
