Young and old visitors will find endless fun checking out “Pugsly’s Hogs & Hotrods” a curated mix of classic vintage cars, hotrods and motorcycles curated by Mike Cashen of Pugsly’s Barber Shops and a family-friendly farm area near Crown Street presented by Heermance Farm where you’ll find hay bails, cornstalks, face painting and a patch of perfect pumpkins. Established in 1730, Heermance Farm is a family run continuously operating farm located in beautiful and bucolic Tivoli, New York.
The tented street vendors will be carefully curated “makers” of the Hudson Valley by James Anthony founder of Phoenicia Flea. Founded in Phoenicia, NY in 2014, Phoenicia Flea is a nomadic market of makers and merchants from the Catskills, Hudson Valley and beyond. Each week Phoenicia Flea comes together at inspiring locations throughout the northeast in celebration of community, culture, small business and local trade. Vendors offer the very best in handcrafted food, drink, jewelry, apparel, accessories, apothecary, housewares, furnishings, curated vintage and more.
Music and Entertainment includes a Disco Lounge with beats by dynamic international DJ’s and producers including Hudson Valley transplants Wolf + Lamb. Some wild extremes make up the whole that is Wolf + Lamb. Extrovert and introvert, three time cancer survivor and social saboteur – you’d expect no partnership could last for long. But for close to two decades, these differences have only sparked the seismic energies that Zev and Gadi bring to dance music and international DJ culture. Never caring much for current convention, they play passionate music that moves hearts — not just feet. From their legendary Brooklyn corner known as the Marcy Hotel, to the founding of Crew Love and its family of artists and record labels, from the warm winters in electric Miami to the serene nature of upstate New York – it’s always been about the two of them enjoying life, learning to live with each other, and making friends and fans that become part of a growing family.
Tedd Patterson is house music royalty. He has headlined with the top DJs in the world; he has released music on the most respected labels in the industry; and he has played a pivotal role in the spread of house music across the globe. Tedd’s boldly creative sets at the Magic Sessions (Miami WMC) inspired, conferring on him legendary status alongside Tony Humphries and Louie Vega. Tedd’s work in A&R and Promotion at Emotive Records during the heyday of New York dance music expanded his musical talents beyond the DJ booth and eventually led to his production debut. Tedd’s collaborations with heavyweights Eric Kupper, Pete Heller, and Chus & Ceballos followed soon after. His edits of Black Science Orchestra, Alicia Keyes, and Bjork, have gained cult status in the house underground. His new single “X-Tension” on Launch Entertainment and his edit of “VR Tribute” by Louie Vega have already received wide acclaim.
Noted local and Brooklyn electronic artists also include Sensay Shnay, A Rock The Shock Jock, DJ Hawx, DJ Optimistt and Tinkerism aka fine artist Jordan Tinker.
The StockadeFaire is a unique and not-to-be-missed celebration. The Faire is expected to attract thousands of people from our Kingston Community, the Hudson Valley, neighboring towns and beyond and we hope to count you among them!
