  • 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, 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)

    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.

      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!
