At this family-friendly happening, visitors can tour Washington Irving’s house—decorated for the season—watch an original shadow puppet short film, and enjoy games on the lawn. A special exhibit highlights how “The Legend of Sleepy Hollow” has lived in the imagination of popular culture through the centuries since its publication.
There’s something for everyone in the real Sleepy Hollow—farmers markets, live music, street fairs, historic homes, hiking trails, kayaking and boating on the Hudson River. Halloween season brings even more for the whole family—haunted hayrides, blazing pumpkins, costumed 5K run, Halloween parade, and of course, the Headless Horseman!
