Throughout the year, Newburgh hosts a number of seasonal events that you can go to with your family, especially your kids. Ghostwalks and Newburgh Celebrates Christmas are great fall/winter events that incorporate local businesses into the activities they host. In the summer, 4th of July Fireworks and Evening in the Park themes the event around "summer social" style games and hosts dinners through not-for-profit food booths. The Wine, Art, and Jazz Festival is another warm-season option for adults in the family and their friends to have a night out on their own and don't miss classic community theatre in Preservation Hall.
Preservation Hall is a historic and social building serving the community's different interests and needs. Originally built in 1851 as the Cumberland Presbyterian Church, it is now a three-story building. On the first floor is the Newburgh Museum, which includes historic photographs and artifacts. It also houses a catering kitchen for events that are held in the building. The second floor has been reconstructed in the style of the original building's assembly room and it is an especially eye-pleasing venue for meetings and large formal events. It also has a third floor named Ebenezer Hall after the first Cumberland Presbyterian minister of Newburgh.
