What is Hudson Valley Hullabaloo?

Hudson Valley Hullabaloo brings together a carefully curated group of designers and craftspeople and the shoppers who appreciate their unique, well-crafted work! 

Hullabaloo is a design-focused, hip-and-happening, family-friendly event whose mission is to introduce local artists, craftspeople, and designers to a community experiencing a renaissance as a center for the arts. Our aim is to offer shoppers the opportunity to purchase unique, high-quality, locally made items in a relaxed, party-like setting. Hullabaloo’s concept brings the traditional craft fair to the next level and supports the local economy and arts and cultural movement by attracting shoppers from all over the Hudson Valley and the Northeast.

What makes Hullabaloo different?

Hullabaloo embraces and celebrates the diversity and authenticity that makes the Hudson Valley special. Our vendors are curated based in part on quality and originality—not on whether or not their work fits into a particular aesthetic. As a result, you’ll find a diverse collection of vendors each with their own style, philosophy, and sensibilities, who all share a professionalism and dedication to their work.

Hudson Valley Hullabaloo’s mission is to increase exposure for...

• ...makers, designers, artists, and craftspeople of the highest quality, by curating an exclusive, 

design-oriented marketplace.

• ...the Hudson Valley, by furthering its recognition as an up-and-coming center for the arts, 

attracting visitors to the area, and increasing revenue for local businesses both at Hullabaloo and in

the surrounding neighborhoods.

• ...our sponsors, by offering advertising opportunities and sponsorship packages that position them

as supporters of the arts and increase visibility to those who may be interested in their products and

services.

...by creating a hip, festive shopping experience for the whole family!

 

The Hullabaloo Team

The Hullabaloo is the passion project of Joe Venditti and Danielle Bliss who run the local design and letterpress studio, Wishbone Letterpress. After participating in a few curated handmade markets during the winter of 2011 they decided that they someday wanted to organize one closer to home, in Kingston. The event is in it's 4th year and has grown each year.
