It's back! - The Taste of New Paltzis a premier event for residents, visitors, and local businesses in New Paltz NY and the entire Hudson Valley. Restaurants and eateries from throughout Ulster County NY gather in one place (the Ulster County NY Fairgrounds), and sell small, bite-sized portions of their food so that visitors can get a taste (literally!) of what they have to offer! Last year's Taste of New Paltz Taft Street Guide was a big hit among our readers so we're back too with our official Taste of New Paltz 2012 Taft Street Guide!
"Food is the main event" - That's the motto of Taste of New Paltz and it couldn't be more appropriate! In a celebration of all of the culinary delights that the Hudson Valley region has to offer, visitors are surrounded by the smells and tastes of delicious wines from area wineries, the freshest of produce from our many local farms, and samples galore from New Paltz area restaurants and eateries. It's sort of like a 1 day whirlwind tour of the Hudson Valley food scene; ideal for buyers who may be interested in New Paltz NY homes for sale and who are looking for a sense of the area's vibe and culture.
2012 marks the 22nd year of Taste of New Paltz, which is organized and run by the New Paltz Chamber of Commerce. It is the chamber's premier fund raising event and a great way to both sample and support Ulster County NY area restaurants, farms, and wineries. It is a great showcase for New Paltz NY a NatGeo "Best Adventure Town" and favorite among New Yorker seeking a mountain retreat with a quick & easy commute to NYC!
