RENTAL DISCLAIMER:The Bardavon is a community-based organization that presents a wide range of quality programming for all to enjoy. Our two historic theaters are also available to the public to rent, regardless of the leasing group’s religious or political beliefs.

Our board of directors and management do not share or promote the religious or political beliefs of any one performer we present or group to whom we rent. Rather, we respect and uphold the American right to Freedom of Speech for every member of the community we serve. At the same time, the safety of our patrons, performers, and the public are of utmost concern to us. Therefore, our management reserves the right to decline some rental requests if we anticipate they may jeopardize that safety.

The Bardavon has always been a place where divergent views can be heard on its stages, from the eras of Mark Twain, Oscar Wilde and women’s suffrage – all very polarizing and controversial in their day – to Bill Maher and Joan Rivers today. When contentious liberal OR conservative material is presented, we often hear from citizens who oppose the subject matter at hand. We honor those individuals’ right to express their opinions.

The Bardavon and UPAC belong to all of the people of the Hudson Valley. It is our responsibility to serve and keep our doors open to the entire community.
