13th Annual TROY RIVER FEST

Showcasing carefully curated, locally crafted hand-made goods and local cuisine in an open-air bazaar situated in the scenic, historic downtown district, this event is an organic, grassroots festival designed to mimic the flow of the Hudson by encouraging visitors to ramble throughout the streets of downtown Troy.  

The Hudson River is a significant part of Troy's history.

Shop, dine and explore downtown Troy amidst live music, street performances, community art projects, festival food, and so much more!
