Town of Rochester Ash Tree Arts Festival

June 5, 2021 @ 7:00 am - 5:30 pm

Highway Superintendent Jeff Frey and his work crews cut more than 20 ash trees along the trail in preparation for this event, which were later mapped and numbered by event organizers. Woodworkers are invited to register in advance to claim a specific tree to carve on festival day. Chainsaw use to rough out sculptures is limited to the afternoon of June 4 and morning hours 8-11am, switching to smaller tools for the rest of the day so that the public can safely observe the creative process. Sculptors can carry in-carry out their carving equipment in wheel barrows or back packs. Sculptures will remain on display through Labor Day. The event will be along the Accord to Kerhonkson section of the rail trail, starting at the trailhead by Rochester town hall on Scenic Road and continuing toward Berme Road Park. This is also National Trails Day. For the day’s guidelines, tree map and to register to carve, contact Medenbach at (845) 706-7716 or dmedenbach@gmail.com.
