After recovering from a financial crisis which forced the festival’s cancellation last year, Clearwater’s Great Hudson River Revival is coming back at Croton Point Park in Croton-on-Hudson on Saturday & Sunday, June 17 & 18.
The festival features eight sustainably powered stages with diverse music, dance, storytelling and family-oriented programming as well as a juried Handcrafters’ Village, the Green Living Expo, the Working Waterfront with small boat exhibits and rides, the Artisanal Food & Farm Market and environmental education displays and exhibits.
Tickets are on sale, priced at $90 per day or $145 for an all-weekend pass. Children age 12 and under are free with a paying adult.
