The 2014 Clearwater Festival will take place on Saturday and Sunday, June 21 and 22 at Croton Point Park in Croton-on-Hudson, located in Westchester County, NY.
Clearwater’s Great Hudson River Revival features seven sustainably powered stages with diverse music, dance, storytelling and family-oriented programming as well as a 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, 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.
The artists performing this year include Richard Thompson, Lucinda Williams, Rufus Wainwright, The Mavericks, Josh Ritter and more. It's an incredibly fun, music filled day out!
