While Ulster County is best known for its pristine landscapes, fast streams and lush views, it is also the center for arts and culture in the Hudson River Valley. From the spectacular artscape of Opus 40 to galleries and outdoor theatre, Ulster County has been home to the creative arts for more than 100 years. Music, of course, has been with us with the Woodstock concerts, live performances at the Ulster Performing Arts Center as well as the arts and crafts fairs in New Paltz and the growing antique center in Saugerties, where paintings, furniture, and artifacts abound. Whether you are looking for rare photographs or a film festival or want to browse the museum in the Old Senate House or the Hudson River Maritime Museum, Ulster County has a venue, which will intrigue your entire family.
