Things To Do with Westchester Kids This Weekend, April 27-28, 2019

We wrap up April by shifting our attention to the many Earth Day celebrations and spring festivals taking place this weekend in Westchester and the Hudson Valley. One of our favorite things about this weekend’s top picks? Most are FREE!

There are numerous ways to celebrate Earth Day and pay homage to Mother Nature. Some of the events on our radar invite hands-on help like clean-ups, while others emphasize fun activities like nature crafting and animal encounters. We’re keen on Greater Ossining Earth Day Festival and the Hudson Highlands Earth Day Celebration, but you’ll find other noteworthy offerings both below and on our calendar, as well.

Other fun in store this weekend are the White Plains Comic Fest, the two-day Hudson Valley KidVenture, and the last hurrah of the annual StrawFest.

We hope you heeded our earlier advice to snag tickets to the Sheep Shearing Fest and Rosie Revere, Engineer; as predicted, both are now sold out.
