Make  your plans and get your tickets for the 2017 Clearwater Festival which will take place on Saturday and Sunday, June 17 and 18 at Croton Point Park in Croton-on-hudson, Westchester County, NY. Festival gates open to attendees at 9AM. 


The family oriented events will take place throughout the weekend on 7 stages where you can enjoy diverse music, dance, and storytelling. There will also be a juried Handcrafter's Village, and a Green Living Expo. The Working Waterfront will have small boat exhibits and rides. There will be an Artisanal Food and Farm Market with educational displays and exhibits and the Circle of Song, where audience participation is the focus.

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.

Performers include local Piermont resident Tom Chapin, along with other world renowned artists such as Joan Osborne, Arlo Guthrie, Los Lobos, Lake Street Dive Band, Martha Redbone Roots Project, and so many more.

Hope to see you all there for a weekend of fun!!
