Discover Sharon Springs…

Feel its energy…the ongoing revitalization of this once well known historic spa town and surrounding farmlands has captivated visitors, encouraging them to return year after year.

Stay for a day or for awhile…visit the shops offering wonderful gifts, food, art or artisan products…investigate the museum complex…enjoy a delicious bite to eat, a free summer concert, any one of our outstanding festivals, or just a stroll down main street reading the informative plaques…conveniently located near many of the County and State’s most popular attractions.

Sharon Springs…a small village filled with big surprises!

Sharon Springs Fourth of July Celebration

What better place to celebrate the Fourth of July than in Sharon Springs! Join us in the Village of Sharon Springs for a huge county-wide parade with food and entertainment to follow. The Parade begins at 10 AM on the Fourth of July. Following the parade, a chicken and rib barbecue will follow in the front lawn of Sharon Springs Central School. Entertainment will be provided from 9 AM to 1 PM provided.

“The Chamber has received a lot of inquiries about participation in the Parade,” says Chamber President Ron Ketelsen. “We are requesting that anyone who plans to enter a float or participate in the parade fill out a Parade Application found on the Chamber website. We anticipate this will be a huge parade and in order to stage and line up the parade, we need to know who is coming.” “Each enter will be announced at the Review Stand and we need a description of the entry and who is participating,” says Ketelsen.

The theme for this year’s parade is “Music of America” and parade entries are encouraged to work some type of music into their entry if possible. The parade will feature floats and entries from all over Schoharie County and beyond. Anyone interested may enter floats, antiques cars, tractors, groups carrying banners, or something promoting their business, etc. Parade entries are encourages incorporate the parade theme into their floats.
The parade will begin at Dairyland on Route 20; proceed west on Highway 20 to Chestnut Street and proceeds to the Athletic Field off of Chestnut Street. The parade route is one mile long.

Many volunteers are still needed to make this year’s event a success. Volunteer information can be found here.

Registration for the parade is required and Registration Forms are due to the Chamber by June 30, 2018.

Registration Forms can be found by clicking here or contact Ron Ketelsen, Sharon Springs Chamber President at (518) 860-5513 or e-mail sharonspringschamber@gmail.com for more information.
