Vernal Equinox Celebration @ Harmony Hall
Mar 18 @ 2:00 pm – 4:00 pm

When the clocks spring forward near mid-March that means the Vernal Equinox has arrived. Join Harmony Hall Curator Geoff Welch on Sunday, March 18, from 2-4 p.m. when he hosts an afternoon celebrating the Vernal Equinox — traditionally celebrated as the first day of spring, when night and day hours are evenly divided.

Days continue to lengthen after the March equinox, through spring and into summer. The free Harmony Hall event is presented by the Town of Ramapo and Friends of Harmony Hall.

Look for this year’s event to feature live, original music and nature photographs of the surrounding Highlands region.

Harmony Hall is the original name for the Jacob Sloat House, designed and built by the man himself back in 1848. The mansion is listed on the National Registry of Historic Places and is a wealth of cultural and community activity. The Friends of Harmony Hall is the member organization that works behind the scenes to promote Harmony Hall, the history of Sloatsburg, and its place as part of New York’s Ramapo River Pass and Highlands environments.
