Hudson RiverKids

Highlights from our 2020 season!

Hudson RiverKids brings together learning activities and family-friendly entertainment all summer long! This year Hudson River Park is bringing our programming to you, wherever that is this summer season. The Park community might be apart, but that doesn’t mean that you can’t join in the fun!

With a multitude of programs and performances all made with kids especially in mind, virtual Hudson RiverKids is fun for the whole family. Come join us – we take play seriously! Check out our line-up below to discover something for all kids; recommended for children ages up to 8 years old.

This season, courtesy of our partner Macmillan, we presented a series of children’s book readings on a variety of subjects. Watch story hour and download directions for the crafts that go along with it!

Take a moment to enjoy learning about our performers and watched the featured videos from our 2020 Hudson RiverKids.
