Autumn Affair to Remember in the Beautiful Village of Windham, New York
Windham, NY is celebrating its 23rd annual Autumn Affair from 10am to 5pm on October 7th & 8th, 2017. The two-day event is a wonderful and affordable way for the entire family to get outdoors amidst the beautiful fall foliage in the great northern Catskills. Organized and presented by the Windham Chamber of Commerce, the event offers a wide variety of activities and adventure.
More than fifty vendors will line both sides of Main Street with local crafts and food, in addition to the many sidewalk sales and food specials that will be offered by Main Street businesses. Live music will fill the autumn air on both days from 1 to 5pm. On Saturday, it’s the Breezy Grass band playing on the lawn at the Centre Church, followed up on Sunday by the Big Boss Sausage band.
The local Fire Departments will provide a rare opportunity to see a live Jaws of Life demonstration at 2pm on Saturday and Sunday.
DJ Fools will keep things lively throughout the entire event. Kids of all ages will enjoy the Wes Laraway Wildlife Exhibit and Show, Tom Newkirk’s King Hill Miniature Horses, a Hay Maze at the Catskill Mountain Country Store, a Ski Swap and Skyrides at Windham Mountain Resort, and a Chinese Auction to support the Chamber’s scholarship fund which benefits two WAJ Central School graduating seniors each year.
Crazy Christine and Sean the Prankster will amaze and delight while strolling Main Street. Best of all, there will be a Kid’s Corner with face painting, pumpkin painting, a clown, and the Hungry Hungry Hippo Chow Down.
