May is a lively month in Westchester and the Hudson Valley, with events honoring Mother’s Day, Memorial Day, and spring. Below we've rounded up our top picks; limiting them was no easy task!
Numerous annual traditions return, such as the UFO Fair, the zaniest of the many spring festivals we’ve rounded up, while the two cupcake festivals are the most caloric.
Of course, the main event of May is Mother’s Day, and we’ve rounded up both where to go for Mother’s Day brunch and 35 alternatives (or supplements) to the family meal. And be sure to indulge in assorted Star Wars–themed activities at any of the many events called May the 4th Be With You (get it?).
If you’re looking for the return of Valley Con, you’ll have to wait till July. In the meantime, head to Rye Playland or the Science Barge, both of which open for the season on Saturday, May 11, or soak up the sun at a Westchester County beach.
