Where to Get Your Music Fix in Ulster County

The Falcon Spring Fest

Do you Love Live Music?
In doing some research about places to listen to live music in Ulster County, I was happy to find ‘The Falcon’, located in Marlboro, NY.

On Saturday May, 27th 2017, I excitedly attended their ‘SpringFest at The Falcon’ Event.
Not only was it advertised as an amazing event, but knowing the that money raised would support living artists, intrigued me.
The day of the event, The Falcon was full of people, both inside and out. Children, Families, Older Patrons happily filled benches, landings and tables inside.
The SpringFest showcased great music, along with great food, drinks and wonderful local vendors.

In addition to this great event, the establishment houses several unique features. Not only is it home to the Falcon Restaurant and Live Music Venue upstairs, but it also has a beer garden (overlooking the Beautiful ‘Marlboro Falls’) and a Rock and Roll Museum on the lower level.

There is also some rich history to the building and location.

According to their website:
“In 2005, Falcon Music & Art Productions, Inc. purchased a 19th century button factory in the center of the hamlet of Marlboro. 1348 Route 9W, Marlboro, New York, is perched over the Marlboro Falls, once used to power the factory. Through the years, the main floor of the building had been a roller-skating rink, community center and a cabinet factory.

It has become the “Village Vanguard of the Hudson Valley” and on a regular rotation with New York City’s most respected venues; a rural Mecca for the finest in multiple genres; to include jazz, blues, rock, world music and contemporary chamber music.”
