An annual event since 1975 sponsored by the Kinderhook Business and Professional Association (KBPA).
The Kindercrafter Fair is designed to raise funds for community charities and to kick off the summer festivities in the historic Village of Kinderhook. The day includes many other events taking place in the Village. Such as: 5K Road Race, Farmers Market, Ichabod Crane Art Department exhibit, Kinderhook Memorial Library Book Sale, Kinderhook Reformed Church Pancake Breakfast, Free tours of the James Vanderpoel House, Live Music, and a Bouncy Ride for the kids. Stop by the KBPA booth and enter to win a beautiful quilt. Proceeds from the Quilt raffle go to support the Valatie Rescue Squad. Join us for activities, food and fun for the whole family!
