After recovering from a financial crisis which forced the festival’s cancellation in 2016, Clearwater’s Great Hudson River Revival rebounded nicely last year, and the 2018 festival – at Croton Point Park in Croton-on-Hudson on Saturday & Sunday, June 16 & 17 – is looking as good as ever.

The festival features seven 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, environmental education exhibits and the Circle of Song, where audience participation is the focus. The festival is wheelchair accessible and stage programming is staffed with American Sign Language interpreters.

Tickets are on sale, currently priced at $70 per day or $120 for an all-weekend pass. Children age 11 and under are free with a paying adult.

Here’s the initial line-up of performers slated to take over one (or more) of the fest’s stages during the weekend festivities:
