Six Reasons to Experience Cadence Fair This Fall

Cadence Fair kicks is an event designed to celebrate the sights, sounds and flavor of a city unexpected.

This free, family-friendly afternoon offers a little something for everyone in the heart of Downtown Woodstock, and kicks off our anniversary each year!  

This year marks our 6th Anniversary serving our community, so here are six reasons to join us on September 28th:

Listen to Local Sounds 

For this year’s event, we’ve rounded up some of the best local talent to offer free live music all afternoon, including Amanda Roark, The Steven Brooks Band, Trevor Startt, The Hearsay, Highbeams, and Chip McGuire. Some of these artists have already graced the Reformation sound stages, and a few others we’re proud to welcome to Downtown Woodstock for the first time. 

Experience Local Foods 

Ready your tastebuds! This year’s fair will feature some of the most delicious food offered around Woodstock, including dishes from local favorites like Century House Tavern, Freight Kitchen & Tap, Partners II Pizza Woodstock, and Goin’ Local Street Dogs. We’ll also be joined by future Woodstock friends Joella’s Hot Chicken, Main & Mill Public and Daily Draft. Sweet frozen treats from King of Pops and local favorite Flux Ice Cream will also be available. (Because let’s be honest–it’ll still be hot!) 

Taste New Drafts 

Grab a pint and take it with you as you explore the fair. Enjoy many of our year-round favorites, and if you’re in the mood for something new and different there will be unique drafts plus we’ll be releasing our 6th Anniversary special release beers! (And if you want some exclusive swag, grab your presale tickets for a commemorative cup and 5 beer tickets to redeem at our beer stations.)

Support Local Artisans

Drink local and shop local all day long! Come support the creators and makers on the Elm St. Green. Vendors will be set up along Market Street offering handmade goods created with heart and soul courtesy of our friends at Maker’s Mash. Browse the pop ups featuring jewelry makers, fabrics, essential oils, painters and more. 

Support Local Organizations 

Elm Street Cultural Arts Village has been inspiring the community of Woodstock since 2010 through a variety of events, shows, and classes. Over time, Elm Street has developed a home for artists, patrons, and visionaries; a place to thrive and create vibrancy through the arts. The Elm Street Green, a 4-acre property that sits just behind our Downtown Woodstock location, will provide the sound stage for our live music all day long. Visit their beer tents on the green for the city’s own Woodstock Pale Ale and other unique offerings!

Create New Moments 

Bring the whole crew for family fun everyone can enjoy! From the moment we opened our doors, we have existed to be a family-friendly place to share a moment and experience something new. Grab a drink, a chair, and gather ‘round to take in the sights and sounds together. 

We’re toasting to six years of creating new moments with friends, family, neighbors and the people in and around Woodstock. It’s been an amazing year as we opened the doors to our new Downtown Woodstock location, and we cannot thank everyone enough for their words of encouragement as we continue to grow. 

We hope you’ll come out and raise a glass with us to celebrate your stories and share in your moments alongside our own at Cadence Fair. Cheers!
