Real Good for FREE: Rhythm On the Riverfront @ Beacon’s Long Dock Park

August 15: Tin Pan

August 15: Tin Pan

Returning for its third summer, Rhythm On the Riverfront is a free weekly concert series that takes place in Long Dock Park in Beacon throughout the month of August. At Long Dock’s tip is Beacon Point Project, a shoreline installation by renowned artist George Trakas, which projects out over the river (at high tide, water actually flows through it), making this a perfect place to fish, sunbathe, admire magnificent vistas of Newburgh Bay and, in this case, present concerts.

The concerts will take place at 5:30pm on Thursdays, and concertgoers are encouraged to bring lawn chairs, blankets and picnics.

Here’s the line-up of performers for Rhythm On the Riverfront:
