Music, Dance, Crafts, Food
Celebrating Quebec's 400th Anniversary

The rural Washington County Village of Cambridge, NY will host a cultural exchange celebrating Quebec's 400th Anniversary by linking upstate New York, New England, & Quebec artists & communities for a long weekend of music, dance, crafts & food.

Presented by the Folk Life Center at Crandall Library and hosted by Hubbard Hall.

We invite you to join us in Cambridge this Fall. Enjoy the beauty of the changing colors, the crisp fresh air, the savory tastes of fresh picked apples and fall raspberries, pick a pumpkin from a patch, find your way through a corn maze, enjoy the bounty of our fields at the Cambridge Hotel or JT Bakers restaurants - and sleep well at one of our Inns, Hotels, or B & B's.
