Kick of Your Summer in Great Green Fashion at Clearwater – The Great Hudson River Revival

0 11


Our family has made this an annual tradition for many years and we’ve never been disappointed.  It’s a fabulous weekend on the banks of the Hudson River with music, dance, storytelling, waterfront activities, sails on the tall ships, juried crafts and environmental education all at the lovely Croton Point Park, a natural park on a river peninsula with sandy beaches and sweeping views of the Hudson.

The Clearwater Festival is designed and implemented to create an enjoyable, entertaining family experience in alignment with Clearwater’s environmental, social and business sustainability standards.  A diverse lineup of musicians, speakers, vendors, environmental exhibits, displays and grassroots activists booths are presented to educate, advocate and celebrate a sustainable lifestyle.  The festival programming content, all behind-the-scenes elements such as sustainable stage power, recycling of food waste and sponsor selection are all done with goals of sustainability and social responsibility in mind.

Inspired by Pete Seeger’s desire to clean up the river over forty years ago, the 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 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 Clearwater afloat.

This year’s lineup includes Susan Tedeschi, Arlo Guthrie, Old Crow Medicine Show and Richie Havens.  Also, founder Pete Seeger will performing in on various stages over the weekend, often along with his grandson Tao Rodriguez Seeger.  For more visit The Great Hudson River Revival – Clearwater.
