SINTERKLAAS FESTIVAL DAY IN RHINEBECK

Every year brings new events and characters to dazzle our community, honor our children and bring light to this darkest time of the year. The Sinterklaas Festivities draw on the Hudson Valley’s Dutch heritage, but with some modern day twists. Children are the focus — becoming kings and queens for the day, turning the switches of the original story into royal scepters. Children make scepters and crowns for themselves at the Crowns and Branches workshops. “But it can’t be about the wanting and having, either.” says creator Jeanne Fleming, “They each have to tie wishes into their branch — one for the community, one for the family, one for the world. They understand their responsibility to be a good king or queen.”

Winter Walk 25th Anniversary -

Winter Walk returns to it’s beloved street festival format to celebrate 25 years as Hudson’s favorite winter celebration. On Saturday, December 4 from 5 pm – 8 pm, Winter Walk lights up the early December night once more with stunning storefront displays, roaming carolers, Mr. & Mrs. Claus, street performers, and a magical fireworks display from the Hudson River. Hudson Hall first produced Winter Walk in 1997 to help bring foot traffic back to Warren Street after a long period of decline. Today, Winter Walk encompasses the entire mile-long stretch of Hudson’s main street, rings Seventh Street Park, spills over to the side streets, and now extends down to Front Street and the waterfront. Learn more about Winter Walk’s origins on our website, courtesy of Ellen Thurston.
