There's Nothing Better Than This Epic Festival In New York
One of the things that the majority of us look forward to when visiting a festival is the mouthwatering food vendors. So how does an entire event surrounding itself around one of your favorite desserts sound? Something you won’t be able to pass up, there’s absolutely nothing better than this epic cupcake festival in the Empire State.
This epic festival is not to be confused with the Disclaimer: Beacon Cupcake Festival that will be taking place on May 6th in Dutchess County! 🙂
Mark your calendars! Coming to a small town in Ulster County on May 20th, Wright's Farm will once again be hosting the Gardiner Cupcake Festival.
Offering up a large variety of things to keep you busy, this unforgettable festival is about so much more than just cupcakes!
Holding the very first festival back in 2009, it has grown from starting off as an event on Main Street to now taking place on an over 400-acre local farm.
Here you'll find handfuls of cupcake vendors, each one of which you'll want to completely sink your teeth into.
And if you're looking to really jump into this event with both feet, you can participate in the Amateur Cupcake Contest!
Each year the cupcake contest features different categories, creating a unique outcome of sweets.
This year you'll see categories like Most Striking Cupcake and Best Tasting Fruit Cupcake.
Along with other categories like the Best Food Inspired Cupcake and and Best Spicy Tasting Cupcake. Mmm!
Surrounding you with eye-catching desserts, it's jaw-dropping to see what cupcake creations people come up with each year!
After paying the $5 dollar admission (unless you're 5 years old or younger and get in for free), you'll be able to enjoy live music and free parking.
Admission will also get you a wagon ride through the Wright's Farm apple orchards, a charming attraction that comes along with this local festival.
With something for everyone to enjoy, you can keep yourself busy with face painting, petting zoos, bounce houses and even a zipline ride.
Best to arrive on an empty stomach, you'll also be able to fill yourself up with local dishes from some of our favorite food trucks and vendors.
So if you've ever felt curious about what it would be like to see over 20,000 cupcakes in one location...
Then it's time you clear your schedule to make way for the Gardiner Cupcake Festival coming up next month.
