We’re always finding new ways to surprise and delight, even now. Hudson is renowned for its cultural institutions, historic venues, performing arts spaces, and galleries. Many are still finding ways to safely invite in visitors, and many more are holding virtual events. Here are some highlights, and remember, whenever attending in-person, follow the safety and hygiene standards outlined in the ‘What to Expect’ section below.
The Hudson Eye is an artist-driven 10-day public program and urban showcase, with a focus on dance, music, performance, film and visual art. This program, presented by the Jonah Bokaer Arts Foundation and arranged by curator Aaron Levi Garvey, aims to celebrate the arts community in Hudson and help stimulate creativity and connectivity. The Hudson Eye partners with local venues and also features daily “Hot Topics” talks that are free and open to the public, hosted by guest speakers whose professional affiliations represent the diversity of Hudson. Through Monday, September 7
There is nothing more important than the health and well-being of our residents and visitors. The entire Hudson community has taken every precaution to be in compliance with the current federal and state reopening guidelines, and most businesses are going above and beyond that. Please adhere to social distancing guidelines whenever in public and kindly follow any additional directives that local businesses have instituted, including limiting the number of patrons at an establishment at any given time, limiting the amount you touch merchandise in stores or try on articles of clothing, and completing contact trace forms, which some businesses are requiring upon entry.
To help Hudson businesses reopen safely and create space for safe physical distancing to prioritize the health of our community amid the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, the City of Hudson, in partnership with Hudson Hall and FUTURE HUDSON, has implemented a Shared Streets program that is currently running through the end of October. It’s the perfect way to enjoy everything the City has to offer, while keeping you and your family safe.
