Spring has arrived in Westchester, as evidenced not only by the blossoms and warmer temperatures, but also by the abundance of fabulous family activities springing up this month! Our April GoList is bursting with colorful activities to choose from—and it wasn’t easy narrowing down our top picks.
In anticipation of reader questions, note that Lightscapes will not return to Van Cortlandt Manor, much to our disappointment. However, we’ve been assured that a new event will take its place at a later date, so stay tuned for news about that.
As for all the great events that are occurring, these include several events that revivify the Colonial era, including Sheep-to-Shawl, which boasts assorted wooly fun like yarn dyeing, weaving, border collies and a period fashion show. There are numerous family performances, including the Golden Dragon Acrobats; lots of FREE STEAM opportunities, such as the annual Engineering EXPO; and multiple events for comic lovers, including the return of the FREE Comic Con. April is also loaded with numerous Earth Day activities, and with Easter and Passover arriving late this year, there’s an abundance of holiday happenings heading our way.
With so many exciting events this month, even our top 15 picks below don’t capture everything—for the rest you’ll have to keep abreast of our Event Calendar and weekly newsletters. New events are added almost every single day, so don’t miss a beat!
