Celebrate our shared American heritage and traditions. Highlights will include falconry by James Eyring of the Pace Environmental Center, pony rides, costumed tours, and vivid storytelling.
The event is organized by JHC's Auxiliary, the Preservationists, a group of parents committed to the adaptive reuse of John Jay's landmark home as a community resource and learning center.
There'll be face-painting, music for the kids on the piazza by Graham Clarke and a farmers market - crisp autumn apples to munch on and ci
der to sip, balloon twisters, music on the veranda, painting pumpkins and coring apples. The Jay Estate was once itself a working dairy farm with plentiful crops and gardens. And at the 1907 Carriage House adults interested in Women's History, Landscape Design and WWI can see our popular exhibit Mary Rutherfurd Jay - Garden Architect
Enjoy the changing foliage and sit in our wicker rockers on the veranda to drink in the unequaled view of New York State's oldest man-managed meadow a vista famously dubbed "a time funnel" to the past.
Jay Day is part of the Hudson River Valley Ramble weekend which celebrates American heritage in New York State.
