The new season at Basilica Hudson has already begun. Our season runs from May-October, but due to the oddly mild winter, we kicked off our 2012 program early this year, starting on Easter weekend with “Rock n’ Remembrance” a special, one-time only event, featuring an intimate reading, screening and performance with former members of the band Hole, in support of the recently released book “Letters to Kurt” and documentary film “Hit So Hard”. Also Basilica Hudson proudly hosted the annual Columbia County’s Habitat for Humanity fundraiser gala which honored their “Builder of the Year” and brought in over 200 guests for dinner and the ceremony.

NOW, for the rest of our 2012 spring season:

Spring has arrived along with the famous Hudson Valley Ramps, bringing you the second annual Ramp Fest> link to ramp blog post. Featuring over a dozen chefs preparing delicious dishes with the wild local green as their central muse.
Don’t miss it, this Saturday, May 5th from noon – 4pm – $20 for adults and $10 for children.

We are currently confirming our summer programming, but highlights include the second edition of NADA art fair and the Basilica’s participation  in the Hudson Music Fest, as well as the return of Columbia and Greene County Chamber of Commerce Business Expo, The Hudson Opera Gala and many more local cultural and community events. We have exciting plans to collaborate with the fantastic folks at WGXC community radio to celebrate the 4th of July and Hudson’s legendary Flag Day weekends (fireworks!) with you.

An anticipated new edition to our programming is Basilica Hudson’s WEEKLY film program, which will present an array of works ranging from new and repertoire narrative features, documentaries, experimental films, video and media art, and guest curated programs, often with filmmakers and special guests present for a discussion following the screenings. This season’s program features collaborations with local artists and projects including The Oral History Summer School, a program by Cinemad’s Mike Plante, and rarely seen classics presented by The Film Desk, including: Susan Sontag’s Promised Lands, Truffaut’s The Wild Child, and Godard’s Every Man for Himself, and much more. The full program schedule to be announced soon.

In edition to our cultural and community programming, we are honored to also be the chosen venue for many private weddings and celebrations. For more information on this, please visit our RENTALS PAGE.

It is an action packed season, that will bring literally 1000’s down to our beloved Hudson River waterfront.  Head towards the water friends, please stay tuned and hope to see you soon!
