This Weekend’s Happenings in Kingston, NY

 

Enjoying Fall here in the Hudson Valley? This is a blockbuster week with some world-renowned celebrities performing in the area including 17 year NBC Tonight Show Host, Jay Leno, headlining the week at UPAC. He will be followed up by the bands, Los Lobos (La Bamba) and David Bromberg’s Big Band later in the week at UPAC. Natalie Merchant, Jay and Molly Ungar, and many other well known local, yet nationally recognized musicians will be taking the stage at the Woodstock Playhouse for Hudson Valley Votes Second Annual rally to inspire citizens to vote. Another Highlight this weekend- “The Burning of Kingston!” Everyone’s favorite local event will provide plenty of local history-inspired activities for you and the whole family. The Third Annual Hudson Valley Vegfest is on this weekend at BSP in Kingston and is the place to be for those who want to experience a plant-based diet with delicious vendors, and learn more about it with great resources and festivities. There will be an eclectic mix of other great events as well, including not only the usual diverse set of live music performances, but the Kingston High School Marching Band is hosting their Annual “Fall Fanfare” Competition filled with performances from not only the Tiger Band, but other New York State Schools, as well. Last but not least, the Annual Kiwanis Kapers will be the scene of lots of shtick, and Catskill Mountain Railroad’s “Rails of Terror” can whet your Halloween appetite.

Below is just a small sampling of all the events happening this weekend in and around Kingston NY. For more details, and plenty more great events, check out all of our Calendars below!
