Clearwater Festival This Weekend!!!

Clearwater’s Great Hudson River Revival is finally here!!!  The park looks great, the volunteers and vendors are all here and set up and we’re gonna have great weather to boot!  Please give yourself plenty of time for travel.  There will be lots of traffic so leave early and please have patience.  Better yet, take Metro North to Croton Harmon Station and jump on a free shuttle bus that takes you directly to the festival entrance.

Have a great and safe weekend!

WFUV Broadcasting from Clearwater!

Our friends at 90.7FM WFUV Radio will be broadcasting live from the Festival both Saturday and Sunday!  Tune in on your way to Croton Point Park.  Or, if you’re in a different part of the world, listen online at www.WFUV.org.


Volunteering at the Clearwater Festival is a great way to participate in the glorious weekend as an audience member and as a Clearwater Ambassador! The volunteer cost for the entire weekend – which includes 7 meals, a t-shirt, camping, creature comforts and enough non-volunteer shift time to see hours of festival acts – is only $56.50 plus an active, current Clearwater membership (remember… our members keep us ‘sailing’ 365 days a year!). We still need Peacekeeper volunteers! The last day we will be accepting applications is Tuesday, June 10th, so make sure to apply now! Click on the Volunteer button on our home page for more info or contact Linda Richards, Volunteer Coordinator at VolCoord@Clearwater.org, or (845) 265-8080, x7105.  Thanks and see you soon!
