Hudson Valley Hullabaloo at the Craft Brew Boogaloo

We recently had the pleasure of vending at the Hudson Valley Hullabaloo. The day was warm, but overcast. We had a great time catching up with our maker friends, and meeting our Hudson Valley Weirdos.
This is a rare shot of Weird Beard himself, manning the tent. He spent most of the day over at the Craft Brew Boogaloo next door.
Weird Beard Candle Co Mega Mandarin soy wax melts
We introduced our Mega Mandarin soy wax melts at this event. Look for more melts coming soon!
Diego's tacos of Kingston NY for lunch!
The best food trucks in the Hudson Valley were there to serve us lunch. The tacos from Diego's were on point.
Red & Brown koozie from our swag bag
We had a VIP ticket to the Craft Brew Boogaloo, the sister event next door. We were happy to see this nice little Red & Brown koozie in the VIP swag bag. I put it to good use keeping my seltzer cans cold all afternoon. We also snagged a bottle of their amazing Campfire Syrup, and have been concocting some recipes with it. More to come on that soon!

2015 Chronogram Block Party

A couple of weekends ago, we loaded up the old Ford Ranger and left Troy bound for Kingston NY. The Chronogram Block Party was the big event, and we vended at the Etsy Pop Up Market. It was our first show in the Hudson Valley, and we were really excited to meet a lot of new people and talk to them about Weird Beard!


We set up our tent just as the sun started to move to the west. It was an evening market, and we really enjoyed the diverse crowd that came out to the Chronogram Block Party.


We were a block away from the food trucks and beer garden. Once the market ended after dark, the party really got started as the beer garden filled up and people enjoyed the beautiful Kingston night after narrowly missing a band of thunderstorms that cleared just to the north. We had a great time and hope to be back next year!
