Margaretville’s 16th annual Cauliflower Festival takes place on Saturday, September 21 at the Village of Margaretville Pavilion. Beginning in the 1890s, Margaretville was the center of the nation’s cauliflower industry. The village’s farmers supplied New York City gourmets for 50 years, before California farms took over. Cauliflower remained a vital component of the Catskills economy for decades. The festival includes music, kids’ activities, Pure Catskills producers, an art/craft tent, history exhibits, a quilt tent, vintage cars, vendors, demos, a tractor parade and more.
