The REMSEN Barn Festival of the Arts Has Been a Tradition in Our Town for over 35 Years

In Remsen, when the summer fades and fall is in the air...  and it is the fourth full weekend in September, then it must be the Remsen Barn Festival of the Arts!    A tradition for more than 30 years, the main street of Remsen is transformed that weekend into a venue for more than 250 crafters and food vendors.  The street is closed to vehicle traffic, allowing approximately 225 arts and craft exhibitors and 25 food concessions to line the street.  A farmer's market can also be found mixed with the craft booths.  Admission to the Festival is free and parking can be found in several authorized Barn FOTA parking lots.




**Local Law Ordinance: Please review for changes to Main St. traffic patterns for the 2017 show
