Scene: An eclectic mix of street style at the 34th Rosendale Street Festival. This annual emergence of Main Street businesses, musicians, vendors and folks, near and far, who attend — continues the spirited tradition with musical celebration, fun and community spirit. Rosendale is located between New Paltz and Kingston, New York.

“This started out with some musicians who wanted to throw a party in 1978, who came downtown and set up and played…” said Festival chairman Charlie Kniceley. The Music Festival of Rosendale, Inc. is a
not-for-profit, grassroots citizen organization.
