Born and raised in the heart of the Finger Lakes, Josh Dolan has lived in Ithaca since 2003. He began his career with a 7 year stint at the iconic ABC Café in lower College Town and moved on to Cornell Cooperative Extension in 2009 as a school and community garden specialist working across the Finger Lakes Region. Josh founded Sapsquatch Maple Products in 2008 and now 10 years later continues to host educational experiences on the farm and produces some of New York's finest maple syrup. In addition to his passion for food, Josh has a lifelong love for music and has supported the local music scene both as fan and in his various roles at the Finger Lakes Grassroots Festival and previous Ithaca Festivals. He is very excited to provide leadership to the Ithaca Festival in 2018 and hopes that this year will be an opportunity to bring his passions together and create a memorable, delicious and rocking festival experience for all.
