The Man Behind the Legend

October 28, 2022 @ 8:00 am - 5:00 pm


Meet the man behind the Legend! In his most famous short story Washington Irving says of Sleepy Hollow Country, “If ever I should wish for a retreat whither I might steal from the world and its distractions, and dream quietly away the remnant of a troubled life, I know of none more promising than this little valley.”

What better way to spend an evening in Sleepy Hollow than with the original dreamer himself, Mr. Washington Irving! For a limited number of nights, the master storyteller himself will visit from the beyond the grave to regale you with stories and tales not from his many famous works, but from his very own life! This evening talk amongst the tombstones in Sleepy Hollow Cemetery will leave you amused and appreciative of just how extraordinary Washington Irving was.

Irving was the life of the party before he went six feet under. Don’t miss this chance to meet him now!

There’s something for everyone in Sleepy Hollow Country—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 10K run, Halloween parade, and of course, the Headless Horseman!
