Basilica Hudson’s biennial Pioneering People fundraiser celebrates groundbreaking artists across a range of disciplines by hosting and honoring a one-of-a-kind person in our raw industrial church. This year’s event will celebrate the achievements and legacy of musician, songwriter, actor, performer and incomparable cultural force Courtney Love.

Basilica Farm & Flea Spring Market returned to our solar-powered factory for its biggest outing to date, with 100 regional independent vendors, including 45 Basilica Farm & Flea first-timers. Featuring makers of all kinds, light and bright spring food and a family-friendly range of activities, Basilica Farm & Flea Spring Market was a dynamic and celebratory way to spend a rainy Mother’s Day weekend.
“It was profound, gorgeous, elegant and magical. We’ll be back for the duration next year.”
Maureen Sager, first time DRONER
DRONERS joined us from Russia to Hong Kong and from Hudson to Saratoga for our fourth annual 24-HOUR DRONE: EXPERIMENTS IN SOUND AND MUSIC, with most making the commitment to the full 24-hour long-form experience. Aided and sustained by healing food, the restorative reiki and meditative art and craft, DRONERS experienced a spectrum of sound from traditional Indonesian classical to inclusive and participatory acapella choral. With exchange and communion at its core, 2018’s 24-HOUR DRONE was everything we could have hoped for, a buoyant, transformative homage to sound, enjoyed and honored without the tight hands of time.
Monthly Thursdays and Sundays throughout summer 2018

Basilica’s expanded 2018 film program will mark our our first FREE public screening series. The program will include monthly documentary screenings and monthly Sunday family matinees. All screenings will be FREE and open to the public.
We are thrilled to be launching into our eighth season of programming in 2018. With music, art, film, food and community at the core of our programs, we welcome revolutionary voices of all disciplines to the Basilica stage this year. From site-specific visual art residencies using our industrial heritage as inspiration, to a long-form homage to sound, our reclaimed factory serves as a muse for our programs.
“As always, we are striving to create an immersive pilgrimage to Hudson, where rural, industrial and urban collide. Through our programs, we bring international voices that might otherwise not come to Hudson, while inviting audiences to discover the character of our region. Basilica aims to be a gateway to the dynamic City of Hudson and this region of epic history and great potential. We are mindful of the rapid evolution of Hudson, and are committed to being a counterbalance to Hudson’s commercial development with our cultural and more experimental programming.”
Basilica Hudson Director and co-founder Melissa Auf der Maur

We are delighted to bring you this unique event, hosted by the Council on Children and Families as part of See Us, Support Us, a month-long national campaign to increase support for children of incarcerated parents.
Join us as we talk about cutting edge practices that promote children’s wellbeing while visiting their parents who are incarcerated. We will showcase two films. The first visualizes visiting from a child’s perspective while the second follows three families and reveals the day-to-day aspects of having a parent incarcerated. Join us to come and learn more about family visiting at our county jails.
