CALL FOR ARTISTS

The Hancock Partners are excited to announce the launch of Hancock’s inaugural Arts in the Park festival, and we’d like to extend an invitation for all local artisans, craftspeople, authors, and photographers to apply for inclusion in this juried art show! The event will be held Saturday, August 6, 2016 at the Hancock Town Square in Hancock, NY. Applications must be received by May 7, 2016 to be considered for inclusion.

Summer weekends in the Catskills are a very busy time, and we anticipate high visibility at this event!
This will be a great opportunity for artists to showcase their work and to reach new customers and art lovers. Visitors will also enjoy live music from the bandstand, a varied food selection from local restaurateurs, and children’s “Aspiring Artists” art workshops and contest with cash awards.

We hope you will join us this year! Please visit DestinationHancock.com to learn more or to submit an application, or call Phyllis Falsetta at 607.637.5341 for more information.
We look forward to seeing you on The Square!

There will be a community-wide yard sale Saturday and Sunday — May 23 & 24 — with maps available to show the way to each sale… many within walking distance. The maps will also point the way to specials at local eateries and businesses, storefront art exhibits, an interpretive walk along our new nature trail, special exhibits at the Hancock-Chehocton Historical Society, and more!

On Sunday, meet us at the Town Square after church (or after sleeping in!) around 12 noon for a moment of remembrance for the men and women who sacrificed all they had for our freedoms, and then celebrate their memory with a good old fashioned “Picnic In The Square” with everyone’s favorite chicken BBQ, refreshments, live music, old-fashioned games for kids and adults, and a huge dose of Community Spirit!

So bring your blankets, bring your lawn chairs, and bring your excitement and enthusiasm as we welcome (finally!) the warm weather, blue skies, and the beginning of an exciting season at The Gateway to the Upper Delaware. Everyone is welcome!

Friends of the Upper Delaware River's 8th Annual One Bug fundraiser 

Weekend of May 1, 2 & 3!

One Bug is a fly fishing competition with two-person teams - two days of guided fishing on the truly magnificent Upper Delaware River, to include the East, West, and Main stem.

The weekend is modeled after the Jackson Hole, WY One Fly contest; each competitor is allowed one fly (bug) per day.  If they lose it, they can still fish, but can't score anything that is caught (and of course released).

Each year our event grows in size - we had 22 teams entered this year, including teams representing the Orvis Company, Patagonia, and National Trout Unlimited.

A kick-off party got things started on Friday night, May 1, at the Hancock Fireman's Park.  This was open to the public, and there were raffles, door prizes, and silent and live auctions.  All the money we raised goes back into the community and into our river protection projects.
