With beautiful Spring weather in the forecast, there may be as many as 20,000 people visiting Nyack on Sunday May 18. The good news is that the first 5,000 of them won’t need parking and won’t be here for very long.
Cyclists competing in the Gran Fondo NY 100 mile ride from the GWB to Bear Mountain and back will pass through the village between 7:45 and 845a. The Nyack Street Fair, sponsored by ACADA, Nyack’s Art, Craft & Antiques Dealers Association, kicks off at 10a.

It might seem a little bit strange to talk about holiday shopping during the first weeks of spring — especially if you are the kind of person who cringes when they see Santa in the stores right after Halloween.
Clayton White spoke to Nyack merchants about last year’s holiday shopping season. The lessons learned from last year can inform local marketing decisions for today, tomorrow and next Xmas.
Big box retail. Online shopping. Constricted parking access. There is a seemingly never ending list of pressures facing small-town retail.
Fair temperatures in the 70′s and partly cloudy skies provide the backdrop for 300 street vendors and five live bands at Nyack’s 2014 SpringFest Street Fair on Sunday from 10a-5p. It’s sponsored by The Chamber of Commerce of The Nyacks. Dogs are not allowed at Nyack’s Street Fairs.

Even if the weather outside turns frightful, there are lots of things that are delightful for kids to do during the holiday season. Here are some very fun events that are happening right in our backyard.
Nyack’s 26th annual Halloween parade promises dancing ghouls, five marching bands, roller derby skaters, crazy floats, motorcycles, classic cars, live entertainment, wild costumes and over $2,000 in cash prizes. Scheduled for this Saturday, October 26, (rain date Sunday) it’s the biggest regional Halloween celebration after New York City’s Greenwich Village parade.
The procession starts at Memorial Park and snakes through the village from 5:30 to 7:30p ending in the municipal parking lot on Main Street. Festivities begin at 3p with live music in Main St. lot.
The streets will be alive with the sound of music on Sunday April 14 at the 27th annual SpringFest Street Fair from 10a – 5p rain or shine. In addition to 200 vendors, the Nyack Chamber of Commerce has collaborated with two local music schools to serenade you while you stroll and shop.

Each Thursday morning at 6 am, over a dozen vendors arrive in the municipal parking lot in Nyack. Two hours later, a tent village has risen from the asphalt. Crates of locally grown produce and boxes of fresh baked goods are presented for sale on folding tables. Since May 10th, I have recorded this vibrant expression of the commercial life of our village each week as the first artist-in-residence for Nyack’s Farmers’ Market.
