Though February is prone to unsavory weather, the bright side is the many exciting family events happening in Westchester and the Hudson Valley. With celebrations of Valentine’s Day, Presidents’ Day, Black History Month, Mardi Gras, and Chinese New Year, the fun is sure to chase away the chill!
Not all the events we’re highlighting this month fall under those themes, though. New this year is City of Science, a hard-to-believe-it’s-FREE attraction for STEAM lovers. With recent changes to the circus industry, the annual appearance by the Royal Hanneford Circus takes on added significance.
Other February traditions include the Chinese New Year Festival, featuring acrobats, cuisine, and other cultural appeal; Old-Fashioned Winter’s Afternoon, offering seasonal fun; and Maple Sugaring Tours (with a kick-off party, to boot), heralding the launch of maple-sugaring season. Several stage productions also merit parental attention (unfortunately, The Cat in the Hat, which we highlighted in our 50 winter activities post as a hot ticket, is sold out).
This is just the tip of the iceberg! Read on for the full list of our month’s top picks, and remember you'll find many more on our Event Calendar, plus lots more on the way. Sign up for our newsletters to keep track of new finds!
