Legendary Rip Van Winkle The tale of Rip Van Winkle is a significant part of Greene County’s cultural legacy. The famous short story takes place in the Catskills, and is set in pre-Revolutionary New York. The legend goes that Rip wanders into the mountains one day to escape the nagging of his wife, and discovers a host of men playing nine pins and drinking a “magic potion.” Rip enjoys a nip and soon falls into a deep slumber. When he wakes, his beard is grown long and his rifle is rusty. He soon finds that he has slept for 20 years, long enough to miss the Revolutionary War and for his children to grow into men and women.

Rip’s tale is commemorated throughout the county at events and attractions across the Great Northern Catskills including: • The Rip Van Winkle Wine, Brew & Beverage Festival, which kicks off each year in May, celebrates the bounty of regional wineries, homemade goods and much more. • View the Rip Van Winkle Mural in Tannersville painted by South African artist Justin Badenhorst. Don’t forget to find the nine additional Dutchmen painted on buildings within Tannersville. • Explore the legendary Clove Experience, including the spot where Rip took his marathon nap. • Hike to the top of Hunter Mountain and discover a larger-than-life sculpture of Rip Van Winkle. • Rip Van Winkle Brewery proudly brews the finest craft beer from the Land of the Rip Van Winkle. 6
