2022 OCTavern Festival

A celebration of all things autumnal, the second annual OCTavern Festival, presented by Java’s, will take place at the Stone-Tolan Historic Site in Brighton, New York. On Saturday, October 15th, the house and its 215-year-old rural tavern will host small groups of guests who will enjoy live music, cider, beer, and seasonal fare. We’ll also have a site-wide celebration on the beautiful grounds of the property, with local farmers, food vendors, and craftspeople providing demonstrations and items for purchase.
