Spring Festivals and Fairs in Westchester and the Hudson Valley

Beyond the changes in the natural world, another sign of spring is the appearance of spring festivals, fairs, and celebrations on our calendar. While the festival season is a little lighter than years past, we've found a handful of festivities worth sharing in Westchester and the Hudson Valley. Our picks range from celebrations of creativity and craftiness to spending time reveling in nature's beauty.

Many of these events are annual traditions ready to celebrate again following a pandemic hiatus. In some cases, public health measures may change plans, so please click through to each venue for all the details. 

Be sure to check out our Spring Activity Guide and keep tabs on our Event Calendar for more fun family-friendly events.

Editor's note: While we are trying to promote safer activities that occur outdoors or with social distancing guidelines in place, please keep your family and others safe by always wearing a mask and practicing social distancing. If you arrive at an event that appears too crowded, try using the “nearby” search feature on our Event Calendar to find something else to do.
