Looking for fun and low-cost family events this April in Westchester County, NY? Here are our editor's top picks for the month, including live shows with colorful characters, outdoor events especially for kids, and one particularly wooly festival where you can welcome springtime.


Phineas and Ferb Live

April 12-15

Phineas and Ferb Go Live

Though Phineas and Ferb are famous for annoying their sister Candace with their grand plans, this may be their most impressive stunt yet: The brothers are going on a live tour, popping out of your television screen and landing squarely on stage in "Disney’s Phineas and Ferb: The Best Live Tour Ever!" As the brothers attempt to achieve an epic escape, the whole familiar cast of characters gets involved in their hijinks, including Candace, Perry the platypus (also known as Agent P in his secret double life), and evil Dr. Doofenshmirtz. The plot takes place during the magical hiatus of summer vacation—and as any child knows, that’s a time when truly anything can happen.

Three Billy Goats GruffApril 21

Grumpy Goats and Mischievous Monkeys

The Hudson Vagabond Puppets present two classic tales this month featuring their signature brand of larger-than-life puppetry.

On April 21, the group will present a double-bill of "The Three Billy Goats Gruff" (pictured) and "Caps for Sale."

Sheep Shearing Festival Stone BarnsApril 28

Wooly Bully!

Celebrate spring at Stone Barns’ annual Sheep Shearing Festival, one of the most popular days on the farm all year. Watch and ask questions as the farmers shear wool from Stone Barns’ flock of Finn-Dorset sheep. Enjoy family-friendly wool and weaving activities all day long: visit sheep and wool education stations, watch spinners at work, learn to comb and card wool, and experiment at the mini-loom and felting stations. Join farmers for tours of the farm and demonstrations like egg collecting, pig feeding, and planting seedlings in the field. Sample a variety of sheep’s milk cheese and yogurt. Artisanal lunch items and treats will be available for cash purchase from local vendors in the farmers’ market.
