Hooley on the Hudson

The Hooley was conceived in the minds of Bill Yosh and Tom Fitzgerald who convinced their Brother Hibernians to help them put on an Irish festival in Ulster County,  The City of Kingston was approached and several local businesses signed on to sponsor the Hooley and to make this a  FREE event to the public.

Excellent Organization, Many Volunteers, Consistent Sponsorship from Local Business and the City of Kingston

First Class Entertainment, Food, Crafts, Beverages make this the best Irish Festival in the County

Take the buses from Kingston Plaza or the Cornell Street Public Parking Lot or if you need Handicap Parking park at Kingston Point and let CitiBus bring you and take you on a regular schedule all day to the festival and back to your car.  Come with your whole family bring your chairs.
From Noon until Nine the best Irish Festival and Fun Family Event of the Year.
