When and What Was Sandy Hill Days in Hudson Falls?

The Village of Hudson Falls hosted Sandy Hill Days in the fall, with a variety of events, rides, music, fireworks, and more at two different parks. Read on for an example of what you would expect in a typical year, and why this popular tradition was eventually cancelled.

Events took place in two locations: Paris Park and Juckett Park. Both locations usually had a full schedule of events and entertainment.

  • Paris Park is located behind the Village Hall at 220 Main Street.
  • Juckett Park is located within the triangle connecting Park Place, River Street, and Main Street.

Sandy Hill Days tagline honored the past, celebrated the present, and looked toward the future of the Village of Hudson Falls. 

Sandy Hill Days was planned to return in September 2022. Unfortunately, the nonprofit organization in charge of the event did not survive the impact of COVID-19 and was dissolved. Therefore, Sandy Hill Days will no longer be held.

Below is the schedule from the last Sandy Hill Days held in 2019. We have kept this information for archival purposes.
