june 2nd events
Starting at Motorcyclepedia - Entering from Liberty St. @ Noon. Ending at Washington's Headquarters.
Attendance last year was near 12,000 with 4 stages, and over 40 bands & performers making us the 2nd largest music festival in the Hudson Valley. This year, our musicians are able to sell their music using our barcode system provided by our partners at Barnes & Noble.
In 2017, we were happy to introduce performances on the outdoor stage to represent the type of work that could be performed at the historic Ritz Theater. Featuring dance & movement artists, jazz musicians, spoken word & magicians from Newburgh and abroad.
The Art Tent is located on the corner of Washington & Liberty and exhibits work from various artists from Newburgh & the Hudson Valley. From fine art to sculptures are all on display in the heart of the festival.
This year the festival will be located in the heart of downtown Newburgh on Broadway and Liberty Street on June 2nd. We are expecting thousands to attend and it will be a great opportunity for you to connect your business or organization with the community.
