Private Weddings/Special Events

The Roeliff Jansen Park is a spectacular site for private concerts, weddings, receptions, and other special events.  It can accommodate small-scale dinner parties and events that include as many as 300 or more people.  Scheduling with the Town of Hillsdale is everything.

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 30 minutes east of Hudson, NY, 20 minutes west of Great Barrington, MA, and 20 minutes north of Millerton, NY. The park entrance is located a half a mile south of the Hillsdale stoplight on Route 22.

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 a refundable $500 deposit and signed Wedding/Event Permit.

Policies and Fees

The Roe Jan Park is still an active farm with beautiful trails and great views.  Event fees are used to fund ongoing maintenance of the park. For weddings or private events, the rental fee is $2,000 and includes access to an agreed-up section of the park. A $500 refundable deposit is also expected to hold the date.

Events are typically limited to six hours but plenty of additional time is provided for “set up” and “tear down / clean up” (the day before and morning after). Don’t hesitate to contact us with any questions. More details available upon request and we’re happy to meet face-to-face.
