BASILICA FARM & FLEA SPRING MARKET
Saturday, May 7, 10AM – 6PM
Sunday, May 8, 11AM – 5PM
$5 entry fee covers admission for the entire weekend, and children under 12 are free of charge.
Basilica Farm & Flea – part timeless flea and farmer’s market, part 21st century craft and design fair – is inspired by the abundance of passionate and talented farmers, collectors, and artisans in the Hudson Valley. 2016 marks the inaugural Spring Market, featuring a wide range of independent makers, collectors and farmers offering a variety of seasonally appropriate products, including spring and summer-specific apparel and ephemera. It promises to be a dynamic weekend of celebration and renewal – picture spring dresses, vintage garden sets, wild edibles and maybe even a maypole. And, of course, all things Mothers’ Day!
24-HOUR DRONE 2016: EXPERIMENTS IN SOUND AND MUSIC
Saturday, April 23 2016 | 3 PM – Sunday, April 24 2016 | 3 PM
Presented by Basilica Hudson & Le Guess Who?
in collaboration with Second Ward Foundation
and Wave Farm / WGXC
Basilica Hudson is pleased to announce the full program below.
// Get one of our 24 limited edition, first-run DRONE KITS for 24 hours of comfort complete with sleeping pad, blanket and reusable water bottle tucked in an artist-designed 24-HOUR DRONE tote. //
// PREPARE TO FEAST on tantalizing food (inspired menu includes monochromatic repeated refrain white rolls and red curry) by Nicole LoBue of Alimentary Kitchen. Join us for Saturday dinner and Sunday brunch (no ticket required – open to Drone attendees and the public!) //
An immersive event and all-encompassing experience, 24-HOUR DRONE features musicians and sound artists experimenting within the spectrum of drone — sustained tones shaped by voice or instrumentation. 24-HOUR DRONE embodies Basilica Hudson at its most experimental and experiential — pushing the boundaries of what a communal, conceptual experience can be. Through 24-HOUR DRONE, Basilica offers a platform for truly experimental and emerging work that may otherwise go unseen.

2016 SEASON ANNOUNCEMENT
Basilica is thrilled to announce its 2016 season, which will once again include a wide range of innovative, avant-garde live performance, music, film, literary, farm and community programs. We’ll kick off the season with the second annual 24-HOUR DRONE, and the addition of a Basilica Farm & Flea Spring Market. Summer brings freaky favorites on Flag Day and the newly added Read & Feed, bringing together artisanal makers of food with artisanal makers of literature. In Fall, we’ll return with Basilica SoundScape, the Basilica Farm & Flea Holiday Market, and more very special events to be announced!
As always, we’re excited to be working with a far-reaching group of extraordinary artists, makers, and talented community members. We look forward to welcoming audiences from all over, whether they be from around the corner or from around the world. (more…)

On this day 721 years ago, Saint Celestine V renounced his papacy after only five months, yearning to return to his solitary, archaic life deep within a cave.
Celestine’s trajectory mirrors our own at this time of year, approaching Winter’s greatest darkness. Basilica invites you to join us as we celebrate our season’s end with a sacred Sunday night– an opportunity to reflect inward / radiate outward in a cosmic cave-like gathering of spirits and sounds.
