Main Street, Livingston Manor, NY

produced by the Catskill Art Society in partnership with the Livingston Manor Chamber of Commerce

Created to bring together the Livingston Manor region and the Catskills at large, the Trout Parade is an annual street fair celebrating our community, taking place on the second Saturday in June each year.

The Trout Parade is produced by the Catskill Art Society (CAS) in partnership with the Livingston Manor Chamber of Commerce. A community-based project, the Trout Parade is not only Sullivan County’s foremost art parade, but the proceeds it generates from individual donations and the sale of parade merchandise will help to support community organizations. Started in 2004 as a local grassroots festival, CAS has produced the Trout Parade since 2010. 

Voted "Best Parade" for The River Reporter Reader's Choice. 

The Trout Parade has been featured in: 

The New York TimesNew York MagazineTime Warner Cable NewsGothamist, the Sullivan County DemocratThe Catskill Chronicle, and many more.

The 13th Annual Trout Parade is set to cast off in Livingston Manor on Saturday, June 11, 2016 at 1 PM. Local businesses and organizations are known to put on their creative hats and add some witty, wacky twist to their march down Main Street. Professional musicians, puppeteers and dancers add to the festivities.
