Van Cortlandt Manor springs to life during this incredible nighttime display of sculpture, light, sound, and special effects.

Walk through a rainbow and emerge from a bubbly haze into a dreamland of curiosities spread throughout this historic landscape as far as the eye can see. Reclaimed elements serve as eco-friendly building blocks for intergalactic flora and friendly woodland creatures. Otherworldly mushrooms, floating fairies, and beautiful butterflies are among the thousands of treasures you'll find. State-of-the-art illumination will highlight these incredible works of art and showcase Van Cortlandt Manor's natural landscape and specimen trees.

Featuring all-original sculpture designed and handmade on site by the team that brings you the Great Jack O'Lantern Blaze, LIGHTSCAPES is an elegantly enchanting evening event that brightens Van Cortlandt Manor like never before.

Appropriate for all ages.

All admissions are by timed ticket only, which must be purchased in advance. Buy tickets online at hudsonvalley.org before April 10 for substantial discounts or call 914-631-8200. May 2-3, 9-10, 16-17, 23-25, and 30-31.

Venue Description: Interested in what politics and religion were like in the 1700s? Don't miss Van Cortlandt Manor in Croton-on-Hudson. Raising a family in the years after the Revolutionary War, the Van Cortlandts became one of New York?s most distinguished residents. Visitors stroll what was once their property, past the Croton River and heritage gardens, and see that their stone manor and brick ferry house attest to their prominence.

At Van Cortlandt Manor, you can engage in blacksmithing, brick-making, open-hearth cooking, spinning, and weaving, and discuss the Federalist and anti-Federalist debates and the rise of evangelical religion. Enter the manor house and discover the lavish furnishings in their original state from the Colonial and Federal periods. Learn the medicinal and nutritional practices of the time in one of the largest and best-equipped colonial kitchens in America, located downstairs. Visit the Ferry House, a rural tavern that offered food, drink, and lodging to families, and explore the daily issues that were faced by the families of this time. Built prior to 1750, this house contains a broad array of Hudson Valley vernacular furnishings. After discussing the controversy of emancipation, step into the 18th-century flower and vegetable garden to ease your mind.

The Manor is located at 525 South Riverside, Croton-on-Hudson. Forty-five minute tours are available throughout the day and leave every 30 minutes. Tour tickets are $10 for adults; $6 children ages 3-17; free children younger than 3. For more information, visit hudsonvalley.org.
