Sugar Loaf, NY is a gem. A hamlet, long known as an artisan village, has maintained its charm, in good times and in bad. The opening of the Sugar Loaf Taphouse has replaced a critical anchor in this beloved village.
Revitalizing our small towns is important to protecting the character and future of the town’s existence – as it was meant to be. Sugar Loaf has graciously provided a home for the arts, crafts and music in the lower Hudson Valley for decades. The Sugar Loaf Performing Arts facility is a perfect venue and future home in Orange County as the center for jazz, bluegrass, country, music education programs, film festivals, concerts, and stage performances.
Like other towns in the region, such as Beacon, Kingston, New Paltz, and Cold Spring, there is a wonderful opportunity available right now to revitalize Sugar Loaf and help those dedicated residents and craftsmen who have supported this hamlet for so long, who never stopped believing in its potential and who have long called Sugar Loaf “home.” It has so much to offer those near and far as the future center for arts and music, provided by the many talented artisans, musicians and performers in this metropolitan region.
Calling all those passionate about the arts and music and preserving this hamlet as it was meant to be. Let’s work together to bring the arts, crafts and music back to life in full force in Sugar Loaf. Let’s work to re-open the Sugar Loaf Performing Arts facility and attract artists and musicians in New York City and this area who want to make Sugar Loaf their home. We need to make this happen.
