Weddings / Special Events

Wedding 2The Roeliff Jansen Park is a spectacular site for weddings, receptions, and other special events. The Hilltop Barn, pictured here, is a favorite for weddings because it has beautiful views and is removed from the parking lot. The Park also has a variety of locations sprinkled around the park for ceremonies. Or just get married in the barn!

Come Visit

The park is located in Columbia County at the intersection of Massachusetts, Connecticut, and New York. It is a half hour east of Hudson, NY, 20 minutes west of Great Barrington, MA, and 25 minutes north of Lakeville, CT. The park entrance is located a half a mile south of the Hillsdale stoplight on Route 22.

The Hillsdale Business Alliance website is a great source to check out local places to stay and dining establishments.

Once you’ve set a date and time (we recommend a non-holiday weekend), a reservation is held for three weeks to allow for receiving deposit and signed Wedding/Event Permit.

Policies and Fees

The Roe Jan Park is still an active farm and is also home to our summer youth program and Farmers Markets. Event fees are used to fund ongoing maintenance of the park. For 2017, the rental fee is $2,000 and includes access to an agreed-up section of the park. Events are typically limited to six hours but additional time is provided for “set up” and “tear down / clean up” the day before and morning after. Review details in the documents posted below but don’t hesitate to contact us with any questions.
