The Year Ahead at Basilica Hudson

While the city is digging out from the snow, and the temperatures are struggling back into the double digits, it seems the perfect time to look forward to warmer times ahead by sharing Basilica Hudson's 2019 schedule. Most events happen after the vernal equinox, but there's one coming up soon, on a day that looks forward to spring: Groundhog Day.

Imbolc Riverfire
Saturday, February 2
A celebration of visual art, music, and performance, presented by Basilica Hudson and Harpooned Productions. Named after the traditional Gaelic festival marking the beginning of spring, Imbolc Riverfire draws on and re-imagines traditional practices in a contemporary art context.

24-Hour Drone: Experiments in Sound and Music
Saturday, April 27, through Sunday, April 28
Basilica Hudson and Le Guess Who? Festival present 24-Drone: an immersive, all-encompassing homage to sound. Featuring an international roster of musicians and sound artists working in electronic, psychedelic, classical, non-western, instrumental, and other genres to create a full twenty-four hours of unbroken sound, 24-Hour Drone captures Basilica Hudson at its most experimental and experiential.

Basilica Farm & Flea Spring Market
Saturday, May 11, and Sunday, May 12
In time for Mother's Day gifts and a much needed end-of-hibernation celebration, Basilica Farm & Flea Spring Market brings together an abundance of makers, collectors, farmers, artists, and chefs for a weekend of celebration and renewal.

(Freak) Flag Day
Saturday, June 15
Basilica's dance party is a freakier counterpart to the annual Flag Day celebration in Hudson. Featuring performances and dancing into the wee hours, the evening kicks off with the best seat in town for the spectacular fireworks display, launched from Basilica's parking lot.

Basilica SoundScape: Weekend of Music + Art
Friday, September 13, through Sunday, September 15
Presented in collaboration with The Creative Independent, Basilica SoundScape incorporates live concert performances, conceptual sound performances, author readings, installations, collaborations, curated local vendors, onsite activities, and more, creating an immersive weekend of art, music, and culture.

Basilica Farm & Flea Holiday Market
Friday, November 29, through Sunday, December 1
Born Thanksgiving Weekend 2013 as an antidote to big box Black Friday shopping, Basilica Farm & Flea Holiday Market is part timeless flea and farmer's market and part 21st-century craft and design fair, showcasing the wealth of Hudson Valley artisanal talent.

Also, from June through October, there is Basilica Nonfiction Screenings Series, and from June through November, Basilica Back Gallery and Artist in Residence Program--all to look forward to, along with warmer weather.
