The City of Kingston is the proud host to variety of dynamic and engaging events. Special Events are processed through the Mayor's Office, who can assist event organizers in securing city services for their events.
Important Updates from Governor Cuomo's Office:
Effective immediately, indoor and outdoor events with less than 5,000 attendees are no longer required to adhere to previous COVID-19 protective measures. Indoor events with over 5,000 attendees will still be required to conform with COVID-19 regulations, for the safety of their guests.
