The Boscobel House has quite a history, a story that is created year after year with memories like these of the annual Big Band Concert and Sunset Picnic. This was the 16th. The Big Band tradition started with the turn of the 21st century. Seems like a long time ago but it is really just a fraction of Boscobel’s 200 year life, two centuries!
The event rings out the end of Summer with a night of festivity for young and old.
Picnics with one the most wonderful Hudson River views.
The event is attended by a full and happy crowd, dining, dancing and enjoying the Big Band sounds.
This is just one of the many events held here that include the Summer season of the Hudson Valley Shakespeare Festival, tours of the house and garden, a wonderful tangle of paths that we have walked often. Frances Stevens Reese Woodland trail
If you drive 9D between Garrison and Cold Spring you will certainly have noticed the deep green signboard announcing the many seasonal events.
We love Boscobel so much we named a cocktail in its honor. The Boscobel, a Fig Shrub Manhattan
