Long Island Potato Festival
Long Island Potato Festival celebrates the area’s long heritage and culture of farmers and potato growers. During this one-day celebration attendees can buy produce from the local farmers or enjoy a myriad of potato based eats like potato salad, chocolate covered potato chips, potato bread, and several variations of fries. The event also features a number of seminars teaching attendees how to incorporate potatoes into recipes. Participants can enter a number of potato based contests that will test the creative skills of potato salad making, mashed potato eating, or mashed potato sculpting. Craft beverages, artisan products, and samples will be available from more than 30 exhibitors as well as live music.
Pour The Core
Pour The Core celebrates everything hard cider. At the fest, guests will get the chance to taste more than 75 ciders, including national brands Woodchuck, Angry Orchard and Strongbow and international brands from Sweden, Spain and elsewhere. To ensure that people leave with a greater appreciation of the drink, different seminars will touch on the creation and enjoyment of cider. The event benefits Kids Need More, a charity serving kids with life-threatening illnesses and their families.
