Labor Day Events

Spend the Weekend in the Great Western Catskills

While Labor Day is the public holiday that celebrates the American labor movement and the contributions that workers have made to the prosperity of country, it’s also become the mark of the end of summer. Organizations throughout Delaware County host annual events to celebrate the end of this amazing season. Why don’t you spend the Labor Day weekend with us?

Here are some of the  events that you can enjoy. We will add more as they become available.

Coming to stay with us for Labor Day Weekend or any other time of the year, please make sure to check out the fabulous places to stay in Delaware County by visiting here.

Three Shows

Back by popular demand! A veteran of many productions at FSC and last season’s sold-out hit of the summer, Julian is back and we couldn’t be more thrilled.  A restless creative spirit who doesn’t care a fig about genre, era or any other category that keeps great songs from being shared among willing participants. From Porter to Prince, from Gershwin to GaGa, Julian’s motto is: if it swings it sings. With an assist from equally versatile guitar virtuoso, Phoenicia’s own Pete Smith, Julian and a rotating roster of special guests return to FSC for what is quickly becoming an unmissable annual tradition: An evening of song with Julian Fleisher and Friends.
