Starry Starry Night is the annual event honors contributing sponsors for the creation, maintenance, and improvement of the Walkway Over the Hudson Bridge. Experience the historic night on Friday, October 4, 2019 at the Walkway Ulster Welcome Center Plaza in Highland!

The longest elevated pedestrian bridge in the world, the 1.28-mile Walkway Over the Hudson is nicknamed “The Great Connector,” stretching from the shores of Poughkeepsie to the bluffs of Highland.

Attending Starry Starry Night

A variety of craft beers, local wines, and many culinary offerings are accessible to attendees. In previous years, event caterers include Millbrook Vineyard and Winery, Half-Time, and delicious concoctions from head chef Charles Fells of the Artist’s Palate.

Tickets are $175, and the event begins at 6 p.m. and runs until 10 p.m.
