Businesses in Troy gear up for River Festival

The Troy River Festival will be held along historic River Street in the city on Sunday, July 17.

It’s for people of all ages and features more than 100 vendors and shops to explore.

The free, family-friendly festival encourages visitors to explore the Collar City’s streets while discovering food, enjoying live music, chalk art, face painting and much more.

Local businesses remain open during the festival – which attracts thousands of guests and spills out onto the surrounding streets.

You can grab lunch or snacks from downtown restaurants like Little Pecks, Cafe Euphoria, Slidin’ Dirty and Dutch Udder Ice Cream. There will be plenty of outdoor seating. There will also be live music from 1 p.m. to 5 p.m.
