This weekend is perfect for a staycation where you can travel to Elizabethan England, the Lower East Side of the early 1900s or the beach without ever leaving Rockland. There’s an opening reception for an art exhibition, a group art show and plenty of music to satisfy all tastes.

This weekend it’s First Friday and the Nyack Art Collective invites you to head “outdoors” for their group themed show. You can also head to the hills for the sound of music, check out the birds of New York State, or take a “buggy” hike. The Music in the Garden series concludes and there’s also salsa and a tribute to two ’70s music superstars for your listening pleasure.
Looking for some live music? Nyack’s got you covered six out of the next seven days. Nyack Jazz Week wraps up with performances on Fri-Sun; there’s Music On The Hudson in Memorial Park on Tuesday; Nyack indy artist Alyssa Sequoia plays Maureen’s Jazz Cellar on Wednesday; and there’s Music In The Garden at Hopper House on Thursday. Inspired by what you hear and want to join in? The 5th annual Rockland Summer Sings is Tuesday night.
It’s a week to Listen To The Music in and near Nyack. Nyack Jazz Week from the Rockland County Jazz & Blues Society kicks off on Friday.

Plus an artist’s reception, a movie about improv, a storytelling workshop and a bicycle ride from Bear Mountain to Cold Spring.
This weekend you can travel to France or a Golden Pond without leaving Rockland. You can hear the music of the Grateful Dead, the Beatles, Dylan, reggae and jazz. Cars will take over Main Street and a parking lot will turn into a Drive In. Cycle to a zoo or learn how to play pickleball.
Summer is sizzlin’ with a First Friday and a Nyack Street Fair. There’s photography exhibits, music a plenty, laughs, group singing and Shakespeare, too. Listen to music in the great outdoors as the Music on the Hudson and Jazz in the Garden series continue this week.

It’s Rockland Pride Weekend with activities for the whole family. There’s music too: RoCA hosts the Swampgrass Jug Band, Hungry Hollow has folk and Maureen’s presents Rockland’s youngest jazz stars. If photography’s your thing, there are two exhibits opening that are sure to please.
