Vandy Land at the Vanderbilt

Sat Mar 27, 2021
10:00am ET

The Vanderbilt Museum grounds come alive during Vandy Land, an outdoor, socially distant, fun-filled festival. Try your hand at mini golf, visit the petting zoo, and enjoy live performances, scavenger hunts, and more. Laser light shows takeover after dark.

All participants in The William K. Vanderbilt Golf Classic will be entered into a drawing to win a year-long family membership to the museum.

On Saturday, April 3, only, 9-11am, visitors can bring their dogs for a photo with Mr. Bunny (fee of $5 does NOT include admission to the Vandy Land event).

During nighttime light-up mini-golf, visitors will see a spectacular animated, three-dimensional light show projected onto the façade of the Hall of Fishes marine museum. Designed by North Stream, the show uses cutting-edge technology and high-powered laser projectors that digitally alter the building's architecture in real-time.

The Cold Spring Harbor real-estate firm Lucky to Live Here has invited the Vanderbilt to be part of its annual Huntington Egg Hunt Trail, this year a contact-free event. The final egg (made of wood) will be hidden on the Vanderbilt Estate, where it becomes part of the Vandy Land scavenger hunt. 

Beginning April 9, mini-golf (9 holes) will be offered during the day every Saturday and Sunday through the month. And light-up 18-hole mini-golf and the dazzling 3-D light show will continue every Thursday, Friday, and Saturday evening through the end of April.
