Much to Do During Winter Walk 2017

As has been the case in each of the twenty years past, Hudson Hall's Winter Walk 2017 offers much to do during the three-hour street festival that is the official start of the holiday season in Hudson. Click here to download a map and a block-by-block list of all the roving performers, in-store musicians, food offerings, and special events.

One event worthy of particular mention is Kindling, a "devised performance" created especially for Winter Walk by Drop Forge & Tool. 

In September, Drop Forge & Tool opened its new space at 442 Warren Street. To celebrate DF&T's first Winter Walk, a group of ten artists--some returning DF&T Resident Artists, some new to Hudson, all creator/performers adept at making something out of nothing--has been invited to spend a day and a half "generating material on the theme of birth/rebirth, a poem by D. H. Lawrence, some classic seasonal songs, and their own experiences of holidays and winter. Then they'll mash it all up into a new experience spanning the full three floors of 442 Warren Street."

Performances of Kindling will take place during Winter Walk on Saturday, December 2, at 5:30, 6:00, 6:30, 7:00, and 7:30 p.m. Admission is free, but the number of people attending each performance is limited to 15, so you should reserve your space in advance, which you can do by clicking here. The performance length is 10 to 15 minutes. Be forewarned that the experience involves going up and down stairs.
