The CreativesMX marathon was made for spectators. Get ready to support the local creative economy by basking in the dynamic energy of the week’s live performances, programs and events, while getting to know and support local artists and creatives. From the Kick Off Expo to the Finish Line Festival, be ready to join in on the fun!


Spectators have it made. You can participate in all of the fun with little effort!  You can bask in the beautiful, expansive scenery each day at some of the most well renowned landmarks in the Hudson Valley.

On Day 5 of the CreativesMX Marathon, you can walk the gardens of the Boscobel House & Gardens set along side the banks of the Hudson River and overlooking the U.S. Military Academy at West Point, and then attend the Art Walk in the evening. You can visit Helsinki Hudson on Day 3, located in the Catskill Mountains, with its New Orleans-style architectural design and nationally recognized event spaces. The CreativesMX Marathon brings the best of the best together for the most culturally enriched experience the Hudson Valley has to offer!

Besides breath-taking historical venues, Spectators get to participate in all public events for entire week of the CreativesMX Marathon.  Starting with the Kick Off Expo, you can visit the “What Spectators Can Do” Booth to ask questions and get important information on where to sign up for activities and field trips, and learn how to participate in voting in the creative competitions.

The CreativesMX Marathon is an amazingly powerful opportunity for people to come together, and not only come together and do what they do, but to learn from each other, and that’s why I’m really excited to be a part of it.
