Orchards of Concklin PomonaJuly 4

On July 4, the public is invited to help siblings Richard and Linda Concklin and their families celebrate this milestone at 300 Years of Family Farming. The party will feature music by the Walkabout Clearwater Chorus and other local bluegrass musicians, square dancing, farm tours, agricultural stands, and children’s activities. Grilled foods will be available for purchase. FREE!

There’s a reason why they’re famous: Each time I’ve attended a Nyack Street Fair, I’ve found them fun and full of variety. This popular seasonal event takes place this month on July 15, rain or shine. The fair features nearly 240 exhibitors selling handcrafted items, art, photography, collectibles, clothing, and more. There will also be a children’s area and plenty of food for sale. FREE!
