The Kearney House sponsors this event at Alpine Pavilion, with a live band and dance caller Dave Harvey. Check the calendar to see when our next Barn Dance will be held!
These summertime hiking adventures for children, led by the Kearney House staff, are held on weekday mornings in August. Each hike meets at 10 AM at a different place in the park and covers about 3 miles in 2 hours over relatively easy trails. For children ages five and up. Check our calendar for meeting places.
Special events are held each year at the Kearney House during which participants are invited to help re-create a nineteenth-century Hudson River tavern. Some of these programs are “open-house” type affairs, appropriate for children as well as adults, with no reservations required. Other “tavern” programs are for adults and require reservations.
Sponsored by the Hudson River Fishermen’s Association and held in early spring at Ross Dock Picnic Area, this annual event features a fishing contest, fun and activities for children, exhibitions by environmental groups, and more. Admission is free (parking fee may be in effect).
