People of all ages from the tri-state area will travel to Blauvelt on Saturday, September 28th to enjoy the 2019 Annual Autumn Festival, hosted by the Sisters of Saint Dominic.

The Autumn Festival, in its 69th year, is one of the longest-running festivals in Rockland County.

Throughout the years, Festival attendees have enjoyed participating in fun Autumn activities, catching up with Sisters they know, as well as reuniting with friends, family, and former classmates on the beautiful grounds of St. Dominic’s Convent.

This year’s Autumn Festival is shaping up to be one of the best ones yet.

Those who attend the 2019 Autumn Festival will be able to enjoy a fun fall day filled with carnival games, pumpkin painting, delicious food, music, a bounce house, pony rides, and favorite area vendors for some early holiday shopping.

The 2019 Autumn Festival vendors include: Origami Owl; LuLaRoe; Bach to Rock; Tastefully Simple; Beautiful Things; Mermade by Hand; Manole Bee Hives; Caminez Chiropractic; Club Pilates; Affron Fuel Oil; Young Living; Paparazzi Jewelry; The Art Kraz; Usborne Books & More; Dot to Dot Creations; Toothfairy Pillows by Betty; K&A Essence; Pritchett Apiaries; Catch Bass Apparel; Caricatures by Mia; and Simply Delightful.

Festival admission is free for all attendees, so bring the family and friends. Also, the first 300 Festival attendees will receive a limited edition 2019 Autumn Festival shopping bag.

The 2019 Autumn Festival is located at 496 Western Highway in Blauvelt, New York, and kicks off at 10:30 AM and will conclude at 4:00 PM.
