Awesome Things To Do in Westchester This July With Kids

With the toughest school year now behind us, it’s time for summer fun! The array of great family-friendly things to do in Westchester and the Hudson Valley this July makes it easy to forget we’re emerging from a shutdown.

July brings with it 4th of July fireworks and also features FREE outdoor concerts plus various summer festivals. In addition to carnivals and fairs, we've found a high-end Jazz Festival developed in partnership with Jazz at Lincoln Center.

So, get your calendars ready and read on for our picks for the best things to do in July with Westchester kids. Find more things to do this season in our Summer Fun Guide, which is packed with our picks for the best spraygrounds, pools, and this list of 50 things we can't wait to do this summer. You’ll find more to choose from in our Activity Calendar.

As always, click through to our listings for full details, and remember popular events—especially now—tend to sell out, so book reservations or buy your tickets in advance.
