After a year's hiatus, the Clearwater Festival returns for yet more inspiring music on Saturday, June 17, and Sunday, June 18, at Croton Point Park in Croton-on-Hudson.
Clearwater’s Great Hudson River Revival (aka “the Clearwater Festival”) features seven sustainably powered stages with diverse music, dance, storytelling and a dedicated children's stage. Additional attractions of interest to families include face painting, hair wraps, mind maze, mask making, bubbles, jugglers, clowns, mimes and more, some of whom not only perform but also teach. River seining and discovery tents offer educational fun.
This year's concert lineup includes such notables as Arlo Guthrie, Tom Paxton, Joan Osborne, Tom Chapin, Los Lobos and others. New artists are often announced closer to the event date. Gates open at 9am.
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.
