KEENE, NY - The third annual Great Adirondack Rutabaga Festival will take place on Sunday, September 5 at Marcy Field in Keene, New York, from 9:00am-1:00pm.

One of only two Rutabaga festivals in the country, the annual celebration of this wonderful root vegetable is a delicious way to spend a Sunday. Throughout the day, attendees will enjoy tastings and demonstrations of innovative Rutabaga creations by celebrity chefs, and all are eligible to enter the Rutabaga Competition, with prizes for the largest, most unique and best decorated ‘bagas. There will also be kids activities, and the exciting “fetch-a-‘baga” game for talented dogs.

The day’s events also include the 5k Rutabaga Run at 9:00am, the High Peaks Hula Hoop Championship at 10:30am, and Coronation of the Rutabaga King and Queen at 12:30pm.

Registration for the rutabaga run is at 8:15am or pre-registration is available at the Keene Town Hall, Cornell Cooperative Extension in Westport, or online at www.active.com. Entries for the rutabaga competition must be delivered for display and judging by 10:00am. Extra-special-talented dog entries for the Fetch-a-'Baga do not require pre-registration.

The Festival is sponsored by Adirondack Harvest, the Town of Keeene, the Adirondack Farmers’ Market Cooperative.
