Enjoy a fall evening by the glow of a roaring bonfire as Boscobel invites everyone to gather for some old-fashioned “kindled” fun.

Entry fee includes marshmallows, stargazing with Lisa DiMarzo (weather permitting) and live entertainment with fireside songs performed by Rick Soedler on acoustic guitar.

If it is a clear night, DiMarzo, Boscobel’s museum educator, will point out amazing autumn sky features such as Polaris, Cassiopeia, Pegasus and Cygnus while sharing stories, secrets and lore of the Hudson Valley’s starry nights.

Food available for purchase on site: bratwurst, burgers and more; complimentary marshmallows and toasting sticks (while supplies last); glow sticks and other light-up items for sale.

Boscobel’s Family Bonfire Night takes place from 6 to 9 p.m. on Sunday, Oct. 12; the next day is a school holiday. (Rain date is Sunday, Oct. 19.) Limited seating around the bonfire will be provided; feel free to bring chairs. Admission is $12 for adults, children 10 and under free. Friends of Boscobel members receive a 10 percent discount. Visit or call 845-265-3638 for ticket information.
