Belleayre Fall Festival to Be Held Oct. 11-12 at Delaware and Ulster Railroad
Partnership Will Help Continue Annual Catskill Tradition
The 29th Annual Belleayre Fall Festival will be held this coming Columbus Day weekend, but at a new location thanks to a partnership announced today by the New York State Department of Environmental Conservation (DEC) and the Delaware and Ulster Railroad. The festival will take place on Oct. 11-12 at the Delaware and Ulster Railroad on Route 28 in Arkville, Delaware County.
The Delaware and Ulster Railroad is an excursion train that combines railroad nostalgia with scenic rides through New York’s legendary Catskill Mountains. Trains take visitors through quaint villages, rolling fields, majestic mountains, pastoral farms and near the East Branch of the Delaware River.
Normally held at DEC’s Belleayre Mountain ski area about five miles away, the Railroad has worked with DEC to supply support for the festival. Belleayre Mountain representatives will also be on-site to provide information about tickets for the upcoming ski season. Belleayre will operate seven-days-a-week this season.
This year’s festival will offer train rides, a huge ski and winter apparel sale, live music, great food, dozens of craft vendors, a kid’s crafts tent, face painting, and much more – all at the peak of fall color in the Catskill Mountains.
