Built in 1855, the mission of Hudson Hall is to inspire and promote the arts, and to play a pivotal role in the cultural and economic advancement of the region.
The city of Hudson is the county seat of Columbia County. A former whaling port, the city enjoyed cycles of prosperity and decline throughout the 19th and 20th centuries. Today it is architecturally beguiling, naturally splendid, and a mecca for artists and outdoor enthusiasts.
The festival draws viewers from the Hudson Valley, New England, Connecticut, and the New York metro area alike.
Volunteer & Community Involvement
The festival involves the local community through its photography workshops and by working with local entrepreneurs, the city of Hudson, and small business owners.
