Popular Hudson Valley Spring Events | Spring 2020

Spread the love

[Updated 3/12/2020]

Spring has finally Sprung! And that means that my Facebook Events Group is FULL of Popular Hudson Valley Spring Events that will be sure to fill every weekend of your personal calendar.

With the warmer weather upon us, not only do some animals awake from their winter slumber, but many locations in the Hudson Valley open for the Season.

I have done you the favor of combing through Facebook and have had my browser full of open tabs in order to provide you all with a comprehensive list of popular events. Take a look at what I’ve found!

*Due to the continued concerns surrounding the spread of COVID-19, all of these events are subject to cancellation and/or postponement. Check the individual organizations before making plans to attend any event.

Springtime at Chuang Yen Monastery. There is an abundance of Hudson Valley Spring events.

TIPS FOR HAVING THE BEST TIMES AT THESE HUDSON VALLEY SPRING EVENTS:
> Plan ahead, but not too far in advance, as the weather can change quickly
> Rely on local weather sites, like Hudson Valley Weather.com for accurate weather forecasts
> Buy tickets in advance, as many of these popular events sell out quickly.
> Come back to this post often, as I continue to add events as I find them online.
> Don’t forget that sites like Groupon also have great things listed all the time! (affiliate link)

  1. I thought the Woodstock event with face painting, interactive musical performances, and a magic show sounds really fun. Personally, I would like to learn more about Hudson Valley and the events and local places to eat available all year long. I’ll have to look more into what the Hudson Valley has to offer.

    1. Thanks for the comment.
      I don’t include places to eat because there are at least two other websites that do a great job providing helpful information.
      My favorite is: Hudsonvalleyeats.com
      Check them out if you’re interested in finding local places to eat.
      I can definitely work on a post about things happening all year long and not just during specific season. I will keep it in mind!
