Poughkeepsie

POUGHKEEPSIE celebrates the arts throughout the year in all forms – exhibitions, dance, music and the culinary arts.  Home to a wide variety of theaters and performance spaces, Poughkeepsie is the performing arts capital of the Hudson Valley, and also features more than 30 murals, 70 outdoor sculptures, historic architecture and the Walkway Over the Hudson, many that are within walking distance of the train station. Queen City Saturdays is the third weekend of every month – an advocacy project by Arts Mid-Hudson to provide information and promote the area artists and cultural events. Queen City Arts is an initiative to provide gallery space in Poughkeepsie, where currently there are few opportunities for local artists to exhibit. Artists are encouraged to contact Arts Mid-Hudson to exhibit their artwork.To become involved with these arts and cultural events, contact Arts Mid-Hudson: 845-454-3222 or  www.artsmidhudson.org 

 

First Friday Poughkeepsie is a monthly celebration of Poughkeepsie’s cultural, dining and entertainment offerings, highlighting the best of Poughkeepsie to create a unique and fun atmosphere in the city on the first Friday of every month.  Organized by Mayor Rob Rolison in concert with Dutchess County Executive Marcus Molinaro and representatives from downtown cultural venues and businesses, First Friday Poughkeepsie provides downtown office workers and city residents with opportunities to socialize together in downtown Poughkeepsie after work.
