Summer in the county is enjoyable, but autumn in Westchester is phenomenal. Pleasant weather lingers, allowing us to hang around our favorite seasonal, outdoor spots a little while longer. In the meantime, our beloved cultural institutions, dormant during the hottest months, reawaken, offering a new season of performances (from Andrew Bird to the Zombies); appearances (try to spot Steven Spielberg in Pleasantville); exhibitions (in the mood for a little Damien Hirst and Jeff Koons?); and all-around excitement. That’s not to mention the awards-bait films and brand-new books and TV shows that demand our attention. So, how do you choose? Here, we offer our blueprint to getting the most out of the fall arts season.

The county gets back to its roots—roots in music, roots in the environment, roots in the county’s history—with a wide variety of cultural offerings this fall.
