Clearwater Music Festival Scaling Back After Losing Nearly $200K
After losing a small fortune, the Clearwater Music Festival will be quite different this year.
The annual music festival was founded by Pete Seger over 50 years ago. The local musician, activist and environmentalist launched the Clearwater Music Festival to support Clearwater’s educational programs and its work to help keep the Hudson River clean.
Instead of raising money, last year's festival lost approximately $190,000, forcing a change in how the event will be organized. This year, the festival has been rebranded as The Great Hudson River Revival. The two-day music concert will be transformed into a weekend of "unity, action, education, food, music, crafts, and merrymaking."
Only 529 tickets will be available for the community event, which will be set up in a smaller part of Croton Point Park. A waiting list has been set up on Clearwater's website for those who want to make sure they can purchase tickets after more details are announced about the event.
The Great Hudson River Revival is currently scheduled for June 20 and 21.
