THE HUDSON VALLEY’S SWEETEST ANNUAL CELEBRATION IS ALMOST HERE
This Year’s Gardiner Cupcake Festival is going to be Better than Ever

The third annual Gardiner Cupcake Festival is Sunday, May 15, 2011 from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Main Street in Gardiner, rain or shine. The Main Street Gang, a small group of local business owners sharing the pride they have in the hamlet, with help from other dedicated community members organizes the event each year. The festival showcases the sweeter side of the community, inviting neighbors from all over the Hudson Valley to an old-fashioned block party.

More than a dozen professional cupcake vendors are supplying the festival with cupcakes of every size and variety. Moxie Cupcakes, Deisings Bakery, Wright’s Farm, Bettie’s Cakes are just a few that will be there to provide delights for the taste buds.

The amateur cupcake contest, sponsored by King Arthur Flour, has become more decorated than last year with the addition of celebrity judges. Rachel Kramer Bussel and Nichelle Stephens, founding editors of Cupcakes Take the Cake, an internationally acclaimed blog, will be among those tasting and choosing the winning entries.

Aside from munching on cupcakes there is plenty for the kids to enjoy, from donkey rides, and jumpy houses to face painting and more. For the adults the festival offers wine tasting by local wineries and bourbon tasting by internationally celebrated, Gardiner-based distillery: Tuthilltown Spirits. Crafters’ tents, local shopping and alfresco dining offer an array of fun for the whole family.

Entertainment throughout the day will feature live local talents Vito Petroccitto, Swear and Shake, Connor Kennedy Band, Tanager, and The Joanna Teters Experiment. Sponsor 100.1 Radiowoodstock will provide music as well.

The third annual Gardiner Cupcake Festival is Sunday, May 15, 2011 from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Main Street in Gardiner, rain or shine. Because, “life should be one big celebration!” For more information about this year’s festival, call the Cupcake Hotline at 845-256-1122 or visit www.gardinercupcakefestival.com.
