‘Tis the season to be jolly, and you’ve come to the right place for kicking off a season of holiday fun for Westchester and Hudson Valley families!

Town charm is tangible at the elaborate Sinterklaas Family Day, which is produced by the same organizer as the Greenwich Village Halloween Parade, to give a sense of scope. New Paltz also glows with its two-day Holiday on Huguenot Street, and Tuckahoe comes alive with its annual Winterfest. In addition to a production of The Nutcracker and other holiday performances, another production worth noting is the Suzanne Farrell Ballet Farewell Tour. The St. Nicholas Day Celebration, featuring reflections of a traditional Dutch holiday, is one of many programs this weekend that are free.

With so many exciting events happening this weekend, we couldn’t include them all in our top picks below. Also refer to our Event Calendar for numerous options happening daily, and rely on our newsletters to organize and prioritize the whole holiday season!
