    Bring the children to see Sinterklaas! Come enjoy and tour this historic homestead decorated in holiday splendor. Do some holiday shopping of hand-crafts, farm-grown items and delicious home-baked goods from Garretson’s volunteers. Garretson Forge and Farm is one of the oldest historic sites in Bergen County. Settled in 1719, this Dutch Colonial homestead was home to six generations of the Garretson family. Their homestead remains a rare surviving example of a simple farming life that was prevalent in the 1700s and 1800s. The farmstead's gardens continue an agricultural tradition. A variety of heirloom vegetables, all open-pollinated, are grown in the kitchen garden using organic and sustainable practices. Produce in season is donated to a local emergency food pantry. An extensive herb garden contains over 75 types of medicinal and culinary herbs that were grown in the 1700s and 1800s.

  3. Hurdy Gurdy Folk Music Club Presents: Jerron “Blind Boy” Paxton in Concert

    December 2, 2017, 8:00 PM - 10:00 PM

    Jerron "Blind Boy" Paxton with special guest Eli Smith. Jerron “Blind Boy” Paxton is a vocalist and multi-instrumentalist, whose talent and contributions to acoustic blues have earned him comparisons to artists such as Taj Mahal, Keb’Mo’ and Corey Harris. He plays banjo, guitar, piano, fiddle, harmonica, Cajun accordion and the bones. He has the ability to transform traditional jazz, blues, folk and country into the here and now and make it real. By his own admission, he “may be one of the greatest multi-instrumentalists that you have not heard of…yet.” Influenced by Fats Waller and “Blind” Lemon Jefferson, he draws his inspiration from the blues and jazz of the pre-World War II era. Although only in his 20s, he is “virtually the only music-maker of his generation to fully assimilate the blues idiom of the 1920s and 30s,” wrote music reviewer Will Friedwald in the November 19, 2012 edition of the Wall Street Journal.
