Description: Pinkster was held in the Hudson Valley as early as the 17th century. Filled with music, dance, food, and revelry, this cross-cultural festival re-creates the spring holiday with a rousing, colonial-style celebration. Festivities include lively presentations of drumming and traditional dance, African folktales, and demonstrations of traditional African instruments and utilitarian wares. Pinkster is sponsored by Con Edison. Purchase tickets online at hudsonvalley.org, or call 914-631-8200.
