Looking for the best things to do in Westchester and the Hudson Valley this weekend? Here are some family-friendly events and activities to add to your list for this long holiday weekend.

If you're staying in Westchester for Memorial Day weekend, there's no shortage of events worth attending. Many local towns and villages celebrate the occasion with parades and ceremonies. Standouts include the Memorial Day celebration in the Village of Brewster, complete with a parade and community barbecue. Also on our radar are historical celebrations, including a Colonial-era ceremony in New Windsor and a World War II tribute at the FDR Library.

Several seasonal, late-spring festivals take place this weekend, including the Sons and Daughters of Italy Festival, Greenwood Lake Irish Festival, and the Putnam Culture Festival.

Don't forget, the weekend is also the unofficial start of summer, so Westchester beaches are open. Our top weekend picks are below, but bookmark our Family Activity Calendar for more fun family-friendly things to do.
