Special Event! Discover Pinkster

Originally a celebration of spring brought to the Hudson Valley by Dutch settlers, Pinkster was adapted by Africans in the New World. The celebration provided free and enslaved Africans a rare opportunity to celebrate community and preserve and enjoy their African traditions. At the Pinkster Day celebration, students hear African folk tales and participate in African colonial dancing and drumming workshops.

PLEASE NOTE: Students should dress for the weather. Programs involve long periods of being outdoors or in unheated spaces and are held rain, snow, or shine.
