Special shout out to Dolgeville with this weekend’s Violet Festival!

Dolgeville Violet Festival and 25th annual celebration June 7, 8, 9In its 25th year, “the Dolgeville Violet Festival is not just a one-time event during the summer, but a year-round effort by the residents of Dolgeville. The Violet Festival preserves the historical aspects of the Village of Dolgeville through the use of innovative, artistic, and educational displays throughout the year. There is an emphasis on the communities’ rich horticultural history, which culminates with the annual Dolgeville Violet Festival…”

The Festival draws more than 75 vendors, 80 organizations that participate in the parade, and over 10,000 people to the Village during the three-day event.

Lyndon Lyon lived in Dolgeville until his death in 1999 and developed about 800 hybrid varieties of the African violet. This helped popularize its use as a houseplant. Lyon’s greenhouse in Dolgeville still operates and is known for violets and orchids, and Dolgeville’s annual Violet Festival commemorates him.
