Greenprints Trailfest gets Woodstock’s green light

The city of Woodstock has given permission to Greenprints Alliance, the trail advocacy organization, to close a street and a trail and to sell alcohol for one Saturday in May as part of its Trailfest 2017 fund-raising event.

This year’s Trailfest is to take place from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m., May 6 at the Elm Street Cultural Arts Village in downtown Woodstock.

The City Council recently approved Greenprints’ request to keep Market Street closed following the farmer’s market until 10 p.m., to close the Noonday Creek Trail while a race is in progress and to be issued a temporary alcohol license allowing beer and wine sales.

Live music, a 5K and Fun Run, a mountain biking event and other outdoor activities are planned. There also will be food trucks and beer.
