This time last year was definitely a drag, to say the least. One of the experiences many missed the most during the lockdown was live shows. The Hudson Valley has not only hosted so many great concerts over the decades but is also the home to many great musicians. Some of which you may have already heard of, but others are just waiting to be discovered. Now, there's an exciting new music and entertainment venue where you can discover (or maybe, rediscover) your favorite shows at the newly restored, historic Montgomery Mill.

City Winery Hudson Valley in Montgomery is the place to be for the best shows in the area. Not only can you be a part of a great live show, but you can sample their wide selection of some of their award-winning wines. Maybe a chardonnay fits your taste? Or, perhaps a rosé on a warm summer afternoon? Also, you can now grab a bite to eat at the Barrel Room restaurant, which is described as a "rustic and charming space that is steeped in history". Try their extensive menu, including delicious burgers, short ribs, Mediterranean salmon, crispy chicken sandwiches and more.

We haven't even gotten to some of the shows yet. For fans of the Fab Four, check out Strawberry Fields: Ultimate Beatles Experience on July 31. Raul Malo plays Sunday, August 1. There's also Marc Cohn on Saturday, August 7. For all of the concerts, doors open at 12:30pm and music starts at 2pm. See the full lineup here. Live music is back!

Please keep in mind, City Winery requires proof of vaccination or a negative COVID test upon entry. There is COVID testing on-site for a fee. Social distancing rules apply, and tickets will be sold in pods. Masks will be required when you're not seated at your pod.

But there's more! City Winery Hudson Valley is also your perfect location for private events, weddings, wine tastings, and other celebrations. The venue offers 15,000 square feet of event space, outdoor space with an on-site amphitheater, plus a professional and courteous event staff. Get private event information here.
