Great American Weekend 2019
July 6 @ 5:00 am - July 7 @ 1:00 pmFree
Since 1982, the Great American Weekend has been a tradition that defines Goshen as a Great American Community. Originally intended to bolster attendance at the Historic Track after betting was eliminated, the Great American Weekend offers activities for every member of the family and has grown into one of the county’s most prestigious events.
Fun for all ages, 20K people a day stroll the nine-acre village surrounding the First Presbybyterian Church, Hudson Valley Magazine’s, Ted Speigel, wrote it is “arguably the Hudson Valley’s liveliest Fourth of July celebration…(attendees) inspecting the offerings at 150 craft booths, grazing their way through a culinary snackopedia, and clapping approval for local entertainers.”
This community event has funded many amazing programs benefiting the entire community. Revenue, generated by vendor fees, supports scholarships, grants and programs which serve the Greater Goshen area.
