Come enjoy the Gardiner Cupcake Festival where there's something for the whole family including over 20,000 cupcakes to choose from.

Kicking off the festival is the Gardiner 5K Cupcake Classic. It's a one of a kind run through the beautiful apple and peach orchards of Wright's Farm with spectacular views of the Shawngunk mountains. Walkers, strollers and dogs are welcome. All participants that sign up (before May 10th) will receive a T-shirt, a fresh apple from Wright's Farm and a cupcake at the finish.

If you feel like testing out your culinary skills enter the Amateur Cupcake Contest. This year's categories will be: - Best Tasting Spicy Cupcake -  Best Tasting Fruit Cupcake -  Best Food Inspired Cupcake (Can be more than one cupcake) -  Most Striking Cupcake  (Can be more than one cupcake)

The event, which was first held in 2009, is a day full of cupcakes, food, music, local vendors, local wine tastings and activities for children. The first three years the festival was held on Main Street in Gardiner, but moved five years ago to Wright’s Farm, a much larger venue to allow for more cupcakes and fun.

Wright’s Farm is a 453-acre farm with a 100 year history and is currently run by three generations of the Wright Family. With the new location the ability to expand the event has become possible, in addition to 13 cupcake vendors – there will be more activities for kids including face painting, cupcake decorating, a zip line ride, pony rides and petting zoo, wagon rides  through the apple orchard and  several  bouncy houses.

Amoung the various cupcake vendors the festival showcases creations from Deising’s Bakery from Kingston, Peace, Love and Cupcakes from Woodstock and Eat This Bakery from Montgomery with a wide variety of cupcakes along with gluten free cupcakes. Other food vendors include Raggie Boy with their Jamaican delicacies, Pizza Alegna a mobile wood fired pizza truck , a mexican food truck with authentic mexican food and the BEST of the Hudson Valley BBQ from Handsome Devil BBQ.
