The Kingston Design Connection Showhouse is an opportunity for Hudson Valley designers to collaborate with Kingston-based designers and artisans to curate indoor and outdoor spaces in an 1800s house at 139 Downs Street in historic Kingston, NY.

Weekly events will be held at the Showhouse during the month of October, where designers can meet professionals in the design/build field; members of the community can tour the house and learn how to create spaces that best fit their needs; and everyone can come together to celebrate Kingston style.

We invite you to visit the Showhouse during the month of October, or attend one of our very special discussions focused on design and development at the personal, professional and community level. Admission for any event is only $10 per person and all proceeds benefit the People's Place of Ulster County.
