Summer in Saugerties

Summer is finally here and that means there is a lot going on in our community with
great events such as the Saugerties Artist Tour, the Sawyer Car Show, First Fridays,
Sunset Concerts, the 100th Anniversary of the Library and so much more.
The streets of Saugerties are crowded with visitors who come to enjoy all our community
has to offer: great parks, places like HITS-Horse Shows in the Sun , Opus 40 and of
course the historic Saugerties lighthouse as well as world class restaurants, hotels and
B &B’s.
This year is an exciting year for the Saugerties Chamber of Commerce with reproduction
 pedal cars painted by local artists throughout the Town and Village of Saugerties which will
be auctioned off at SPAF (Saugerties Performing Arts Factory) on September 19th.
The proceeds of this auction will benefit the Ulster County Patriot Project as well
as the Saugerties American Legion Post. I know you will agree, that it is an
honor to support our veterans.
So welcome to Friendly Saugerties.
Greg Helsmoortel, Supervisor Town of Saugerties

Welcome to Friendly Saugerties

Everyone is talking about Saugerties, from Jimmy Fallon who grew up here to the New York Times. Voted as one of the Top 10 Coolest Small Towns by Budget Travel magazine as well as the best Hudson Valley Town to Live In by Upstater magazine Saugerties has so much to offer. Nestled within the Hudson River and the Catskill Mountains, Saugerties features unique shops, galleries and restaurants, world class hotel and tavern , beautiful B &B’s, tennis, golf, biking trails, an indoor ice arena as well as accommodations for families with several local campgrounds, we have something for everyone year-round.

I invite you to walk the trail to the Saugerties Lighthouse, to marvel at Opus 40, hike at the Esopus Creek Conservancy or learn some Hudson Valley history at the Kiersted house. Known as the festival town, Saugerties was home to events such as Woodstock 94 and the Hudson Project Music Festival and still continues today with events  like the Hudson Valley Garlic Festival, the Saugerties Artist Tour, Between the Tide Festival and the Sawyer Motors Car Show.

So, if you love the great outdoors, or the arts, shopping, great restaurants or just simply spending an afternoon resting along the river, then you’ve come to the right place. Come stay awhile and on behalf of the Town of Saugerties,

Welcome to Friendly Saugerties.
