Summer Solstice Festival seeks vendors

DELMAR — Organizers of the Summer Solstice Festival on the Albany County Helderberg Hudson Rail Trail are seeking food trucks, crafts, artisanal food vendors and musicians for the fourth annual outdoor event, held this year on Saturday, June 20, from noon to 4 p.m.

Last year, the event drew 1,000 attendees who walked sections of the trail in Delmar and Slingerlands in the town of Bethlehem, and in Voorheesville in the town of New Scotland. A shuttle courtesy of Premiere Transportation will once again be available to transport people between the towns.

Registration has been extended until May 22. A vendor application may be found on

The Summer Solstice Festival is organized by the Mohawk Hudson Land Conservancy. The Rail Trail is a nine-mile stretch of an old D&H rail line running from Voorheesville to the Port of Albany. It is owned by Albany County and is being developed and operated with the cooperation of the Mohawk Hudson Land Conservancy and its Friends of the Rail Trail committee, the towns of Bethlehem and New Scotland and the village of Voorheesville.
