When an event has been labeled by Outside Magazine as “One of the top 4 music festivals in the United States,” you can be rest assured it isn’t one you want to miss! This is the case with Clearwater’s Great Hudson River Revival, taking place June 21-22, 2014 in Croton-on-Hudson, NY.
Clearwater actually has quite the history, with roots beginning with a beloved, legendary musical artist: Pete Seeger. In 1966 he was in such despair over the state of the Hudson River that he pioneered an initiative to clean it up and inspire others to take action as well. He organized the creation of the sloop Clearwater, a majestic 106-foot long replica vessel of those that sailed the Hudson in the 18th and 19th centuries. It has since played a groundbreaking role in environmental education and has been recognized as a symbol for hands-on learning, music, and celebration.
Clearwater’s Great Hudson River Revival was originally founded to raise funds for the building of the Clearwater. Today all proceeds of the festival go towards environmental research, education and advocacy efforts to help protect and preserve the Hudson River. What began as a small fundraising river concert has grown into a popular summer event. This year will bring:
- 25 fantastic performers
- Sailing with the Clearwater and the Schooner Mystic Whaler,
- Family-oriented programming
- Handcrafters’ Village
- The Green Living Expo
- The Working Waterfront with small boat exhibits and rides
- The Artisanal Food & Farm Market
- Environmental education displays and exhibits
Date: June 21-22, 2014
Location: Croton Point Park
