Although I post a weekly Westchester events calendar – the holidays are always special and the Thanksgiving Westchester calendar of events is no exception. Here is a short list of events for this uniquely American Holiday. A more generalized events calendar will be published later, but these events are unique to this holiday weekend and tend to sell out rather quickly.

The Historic Hudson Valley is featuring three special events unique to the Thanksgiving weekend called collectively the Gateway to the Holiday Season.
The hours and cost are the same for all three events:
