Schoharie 300th Celebration
September 7th, 8th, 9th, 2012
in the Village of Schoharie

In 1712 the Palatine Germans settled the Schoharie Valley and 300 years later Schoharie is trying to recover from the devastation caused by Hurricane Irene.  The flooding of the valley and subsequent rebuilding of our community seems to be calling for a platform to acknowledge our past and embrace our future. 

Chair:  Richard Sherman

Co-Chair:  Darlene Patterson

What a great weekend and what a way to celebrate 300 years in the valley!  The Schoharie Promotional Association’s Schoharie’s 300th Anniversary committee would like to say thank you to everyone who celebrated with us on our anniversary weekend.  We want to express our gratitude to the following:  businesses and organizations for sponsoring events, our financial contributors, everyone who purchased ads in our book and purchased souvenirs, performers who waived their fees, those who contributed to our auction, the media that brought attention to our weekend, our volunteers, and all who lent assistance.  From the great fireworks on Friday night with people lining Main Street, through the many events on Saturday (including a strong wind and rainstorm), and ending with a wonderful parade, we are delighted that so many people enjoyed the festivities!  Schoharie remains strong -- 300 years and counting!
