It, unfortunately, has come to the point where we must announce the cancelation of the 2020 Dolgeville Violet Festival. This decision was not made lightly as our committee works year-round to make this event a possibility and so much work has already been invested into what would have been the 2020 Dolgeville Violet Festival. I say this because I want our community to know that our committee has taken into consideration any possible alternative to canceling. Many factors were taken into consideration.  Organizations and businesses who have already responded to participating in the 2020 Dolgeville Violet Festival, in one way or another, will be contacted by committee members in the weeks to come about our cancelation and about any refunds that may need to be made. Please be patient with us as we are a small committee dealing with the cancelation of a rather large event. We are staying positive and looking forward to Dolgeville Violet Festival 2021!

The Dolgeville Violet Festival is not just a one-time event during the summer, but a year-round effort by the residents of Dolgeville.

The Violet Festival preserves the historical aspects of the Village of Dolgeville through the use of innovative, artistic, and educational displays throughout the year.

There is an emphasis on the communities’ rich horticultural history, which culminates with the annual Dolgeville Violet Festival the 2nd Friday, Saturday, and Sunday of June each year.

The Festival draws more than 75 vendors, 80 organizations that participate in the parade, and over 10,000 people to the Village during the three-day event.

Violet Festival Committee meetings are held the second Wednesday of each month at the Dolgeville Village Hall. Anyone interested in volunteering is encouraged to attend.
