Each September for the last 14 years the Hudson River Valley Ramble pulls together the best activities – primarily outdoors – and calls it “The Ramble”. Hiking, biking, canoeing & kayaking, historic site tours and farm festivals are all part of the events stretching from NYC to Albany.

Hosted by Hudson River Valley Greenway and National Heritage Area, the Hudson River Valley Ramble has more than 200 different events planned over the four weekends in September. From the Hudson River Valley Ramble website “The Hudson River Valley Ramble is an annual event series that celebrates the history, culture and natural resources of the Hudson River Valley National Heritage Area, as well as the amazing landscape, communities, and trails throughout the region.”

For the most part, these events are outdoors, but if you can sit still for a moment (well, about an hour, really) there is even a classical piano concert to attend indoors. On September 21, Sunday at 3 p.m., Saugerties Pro Musica presents Inesa Sinkevych in concert at the Saugerties United Methodist Church. Other musical events scheduled include the Albany Riverfront Jazz Festival on September 6 and Linda Russell’s "Songs of the Hudson Valley" at Historic Huguenot Street on September 27.

When you simply have to be outside, there are festivals, farm tours, art tours and seemingly endless heritage events at the Hudson Valley’s many historic sites. This includes everything for the entire family and people of all skill levels. There is too much happening to list!

So, whatever your pleasure, check out all the events on the Hudson River Valley Ramble website where you can search by location, date or type of event. Then, gather your family and friends and have a ball celebrating the diversity of the Hudson River Valley!
