October 12 @ 11:00 am - 7:00 pm
WishFest is a community music festival started seven years ago with a mission to make a difference in the community. It has grown from its humble beginnings into a major fundraiser for Capital Region Giving Tree, an organization of passionate local community members united to fill the unmet needs of neighbors who have nowhere else to turn. The money we raise will be distributed to several organizations specially selected by local children. You can find more information about these organizations on this page!
This year, Wish Fest will kick off at 11 a.m., Saturday, Oct. 12th , at Bridge St in Amsterdam. The stage will feature musical acts, plenty of food & drink, activities for all ages, ending with a spectacular fireworks celebration at dusk!
Amsterdam’s beautiful Bridge St is located on the banks of the Mohawk River. There is plenty of room to walk, or set up your lawn chair and blankets for a great day for a great cause.
FREE PARKING is available at 25 Bridge St. (off Route 30, just off Exit 27 of the New York State Thruway), a very short, scenic walk from the event. (Golf Cart accommodations will be made for those needing assistance.)
BOATERS: There is a dock with electric hookups right at the park! Just pull up, tie up and kick back!
Every dollar matters, every dream matters. YOU matter. We hope to see you Saturday Oct. 12th at WishFest
