You know you’ve been waiting for them: the big white tents that each July turn the streets of downtown Skaneateles into a shopper’s paradise.
They, and the bargains they signify, return July 21-23 for Skaneateles’ annual Curbstone Festival.
The event—featuring more than 30 merchants and organized by the Skaneateles Area Chamber of Commerce—runs along Genesee, Jordan and Fennell streets. Hours are 9 a.m. to 8 p.m. Thursday and Friday and 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday.,
“The Curbstone Festival is a longstanding tradition in the village and an experience not to be missed,” says Susan Dove, executive director of the Skaneateles Area Chamber of Commerce. “It’s so popular that people start asking about the date in January and plan their vacations around it.
“While the sidewalk sales are the draw, the Curbstone Festival is so much more,” she notes. “We have something for everyone—visitors can stroll by the lake or take a Mid-Lakes Navigation cruise, try the village’s fine restaurants, and stay overnight at one of our historic inns or B&Bs. And this year, we’ve expanded the entertainment.”
Visitors can park at metered spots along the street or in the municipal lot (accessed through Genesee or State streets), where two-hour parking is free and all-day parking is $2. Free parking is available at the old firehouse on Fennell Street and on various side streets.
