NJ Acoustic Music in the Park Message Board › Clearwater Festival, Sat & Sun, June 15-16
South Plainfield, NJ
FiL and I are going to the Clearwater Festival in Westchester County, NY on Sat. 6/15. We are leaving early on Sat to stake out a spot under the big tree at the Rainbow Stage. Let us know if you are going. Maybe someone can stake out a spot at the Hudson Stage. Then we can all stage hop as we choose.
The setting is absolutely gorgeous, if you haven't already been to one of these. Info below:
The 2013 Clearwater Festival will take place on Saturday and Sunday, June 15 and 16 at Croton Point Park in Croton-on-Hudson, Westchester County, NY. Festival gates open to attendees at 9AM.
Clearwater’s Great Hudson River Revival (aka “the Clearwater Festival” or “Revival”) features seven sustainably powered stages with diverse music, dance, storytelling and family-oriented programming as well as juried crafts, the Green Living Expo, the Working Waterfront with small boat exhibits and rides, an artisanal food & farm market, environmental education displays and exhibits, and the Circle of Song where audience participation is the focus. The festival is wheelchair accessible and most stage programming is staffed with American Sign Language interpreters.
Inspired by Pete Seeger’s desire to clean up the river over forty years ago, Clearwater’s Great Hudson River Revival initially helped raise the funds to build the sloop Clearwater, which has since become a world-renowned floating classroom and a symbol of effective grassroots action. Today, Hudson River Sloop Clearwater, Inc. is a non-profit organization that sails at the forefront of the nation’s environmental challenges. The revenue raised by the Revival goes to support Clearwater’s numerous educational programs and its work toward environmental and social justice—as well as keeping the sloop Clearwater afloat.
