Early Fall

Jay Day

Jay Day is part of the Hudson River Valley Ramble event, which celebrates the history, culture, and natural resources of the Hudson River Valley National Heritage Area as well as the amazing landscapes, communities and trails throughout the region. From pony rides in the landscape where John Jay first learned to ride a horse to coring honey crisp apples into delicious spiral ribbons, the offerings for families grow year after year. Entertainment from live music to balloon sculptors delights guests of all ages. Activities embrace the local history tied to our region over centuries. Read more here!

Late Spring

I Love My Parks

JHC, in partnership with the New York State Parks, Recreation & Historic Preservation, participates in the annual I Love My Park Day held each spring. The event celebrates volunteerism at our favorite historic and natural sites and highlights the beauty and history in our own community at the Jay Heritage Center.
