Spring is coming and the Hudson Valley is waking up and getting active! Below are some great events happening locally during the spring weekends in 2019. Some of them are just for the adults, some of them welcome children, but all of them offer a good time and a great opportunity to get out of the house, explore something new and exciting, and spend quality time with friends old and new. While staying in the area visiting these festivals, be sure to treat yourself to Hudson Valley’s best bed and breakfast such as Saint Hubert’s Lodge & Club. Let’s get started exploring the best spring festivals in the area!
