The Kuyahoora Valley Chamber of Commerce in conjunction with the Poland High School Columbus Day Soccer Tournament are proud to present the 7th Annual Kuyahoora Valley Fall Festival on October 11th and 12th. The event will be held at the Town of Russia Park and will include local crafters and activities for the children - food and fun for everyone!

The crowning event of this festival will be a fireworks display on Saturday evening (with Sunday for the rain date). The festival hours will be on Saturday from Noon till 8:00 p.m. with fireworks at dark and Sunday 10 a.m. till 6:00 p.m. Last year we had over 40 vendor booths, lots of food, and activities for the kids!

This is our seventh year and we are hoping to continue to grow this event and make it the fall festival that everyone from Oneida and Herkimer counties wants to attend.

If you are interested in having a booth space or have any questions you may contact Leslie Irwin at or 315-826-7702. You may also contact Melissa McCredie at or 315-891-7502
