Fleischmanns street fair on Saturday

Fleischmanns — This Memorial Day Weekend, Saturday May 26, Fleischmanns will once again host a village-wide celebration and street fair, with a full day of shopping, music, food and fun. Fleischmanns’ Main Street will be filled with sidewalk vendors and live music.
Grownups and kids alike can enjoy old-fashioned horse carriage rides, and children can also get a haircut and enjoy expert face painting.

Songstress Cat Blume, “the singer with a song in her heart” will emcee the musical entertainment, which includes Connie Mohar and Jeanne Palmer on accordion and fiddle, Hilt and Stella Kelly and their SideKicks, the Catskills Mountain Boys, and of course, Cat Blume herself, covering the musical landscape from standards and blues to country and Doo Wop. 

You’ll also have plenty of time to shop Main Street from 9 a.m. until 4 p.m., browsing everything from antiques and hand-made furniture to specialty foods, artists’ wares, clothing, jewelry and crafts, including chimes, birdhouses, tote bags, metal works and much more.  Skene Library hosts its biggest fundraiser of the year, its annual book and plant sale, and the Greater Fleischmanns Museum of Memories opens for the season. 

And what would Memorial Day be without the Fleischmanns Fire Department’s famed chicken barbecue? There’ll be plenty of food vendors and restaurant specials to fortify hungry shoppers. 
As always, Fleischmanns will host a Memorial Day Parade on Main Street on Monday, May 28. Be sure to gather before 9 a.m. if you would like to march along.

Events are sponsored by Fleischmanns First with technical assistance from The MARK Project, and funded in part by The Ken Pasternak Family Foundation and The A. Lindsay & Olive B. O’Connor Foundation. The annual parade is sponsored by American Legion Post 216 and the Village of Fleischmanns.
