The Clearwater Festival, founded by Pete Seeger


June 16 & 17
Saturday & Sunday 11 a.m. to 8:30 p.m. (gates open at 9 a.m.)

"One of the Top 4 Festivals in the US" - Outside Magazine. Over 100 artists will perform over 7 bio-diesel or solar powered stages including: Jeff Tweedy of Wilco, The Mavericks, Ani DiFranco, They Might Be Giants, Rhiannon Giddens of the Carolina Chocolate Drops, bluegrass greats Hot Rize, Langhorne Slim, Willie Nile, Beth Orton, Dave Alvin & Jimmie Dale Gilmore, Margaret Glasby, The War and Treaty, River Whyless, Tom Paxton, Parker Millsap, Making Movies, Mipso and many more!

In addition to the 7 stages of music, there’s also an Artisanal Market, Handcrafters’ Village with over 60 crafters, Green Living Expo, Working Waterfront with rides on small boats and tall ships (including the sloop Clearwater and schooner Mystic Whaler, the Children's Area, The Circle of Song (sing-alongs), Story Grove  (professional storytellers) and so much more!

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-as well as keeping the sloop Clearwater afloat.
