Festival Fever: Beacon Riverfest @ Riverfront Park, 6/25/11
It’s the biggest music fest weekend of the year with the Freihofer’s Saratoga Jazz Festival at SPAC, the Solid Sound Festival at MASS MoCA and the Old Songs Festival at the Altamont Fairgrounds.
But maybe you want another choice. Or perhaps what you’re looking for is a music fest that you don’t have to reach into your wallet for.
Yeah, we got that, too. Just head downriver to Riverfront Park in Beacon, where the second annual Beacon Riverfest is taking place on Saturday. Of course, there will be plenty of food and crafts, but the main attraction is the eclectic array of music.
Here’s the schedule of performances at the 2011 Beacon Riverfest:
1pm: The Rock Band Boot Camp Band
3pm: The Jack Grace Band
4:30pm: Gato Loco Coconino
5:45pm: The ReadNex Poetry Squad
7pm: The Tao Seeger Band
