Our events are as diverse as the mountains, valleys, streams and rivers that dot Ulster County’s 250,000-acre landscape. Find the perfect train ride or guided nature hike, or plan an evening listening to jazz greats and rock icons. Watch International Olympic-level Hunter-Jumper horse shows, experience heart-pounding scares at the largest haunted attraction in New York State or learn about our local lore on a Hudson River boat ride.

If you would like to submit an event for consideration on our events calendar, you can do that right here.
