Arts in the Historic Hudson River Towns

The Historic Hudson River Towns area is rich in the performing and visual arts. Some of our most prominent venues include:

The Hudson Valley Center for Contemporary Art (HVCCA) in Peekskill offers changing exhibitions and educational programs.

Dia:Beacon, Riggio Galleries is the museum for Dia Art Foundation's renowned collection of art, from the 1960s to the present. The museum, which opened in 2003, is situated on the banks of the Hudson River in Beacon. Along with Dia’s permanent collection, Dia:Beacon also presents temporary exhibitions, as well as public programs designed to complement the collection and exhibitions.

Paramount Center for the Arts (seen here) in Peekskill presents a full schedule of live musical performances and films throughout the year. The recently-restored theater also has changing art exhibits in their upstairs gallery

Tarrytown Music Hall is an 843-seat restored theater that presents a wide range of dramatic and musical performances in a 19th-century setting.

Irvington Town Hall Theater is modeled after Ford’s Theater in Washington, D.C. Musical performances and plays are presented here regularly.

Hudson Valley Shakespeare Festival brings the Bard to the river at Boscobel in Garrison. Picnicking before each show is popular, as is the hilarity and drama of each season.

Eisenhower Hall is a huge performing arts center on the grounds of the US Military Academy at West Point presenting top stars, national touring companies, music, drama, dance and lectures. For information on tickets and upcoming shows, call (845) 938-4159,

Historic Hudson River Towns Event
SUNDAYS, January 8th thru April 9th 2017; 11 AM to 3 PM. An indoor epicurean upmarket from farm fare to fresh baked, traditional to exotic, and savory to indulgent, served in the lively communal tradition of the ancient markets curated to transport you into the throes of delight. Come escape the winter’s cold into a rich sensual oasis perfumed with spices, rich oils and artisan cheeses mingling into the smoky air with the irresistible aromatic mixtures from cauldrons of steamy simmering soups, roasted meats and fresh baked pies prepared to eat here or to take away. Spend your lazy Sundays meandering a shifting, diverse labyrinth of weekly changing vendors through an exotic “open” air green house market space or choose to rest in conversation near the wood-stove’s burning fires with something warm, surrounded by the finest art and craft in the Hudson Valley. Situated just north of the New Jersey border between the historic towns of Tappan, Sparkill and Piermont nestled along the Sparkill Creek lies the OUTSIDE IN, home to “The Souk” and portal to the lower Hudson River Valley.
