Sail the Woody Guthrie at Beacon’s Corn Festival

Music, crafts and Buck-an-Ear sweet corn

The Beacon Sloop Club’s annual Corn Festival will take place rain or shine Sunday, Aug. 12, from noon to 5 p.m. at the Beacon waterfront. The Sloop Club will be offering fresh, ready-to-eat Hudson Valley sweet corn on the cob for just a “Buck-an-Ear,” meat and vegetarian chili, and additional summer treats. Come early to sign up for a free public sail on the Woody Guthrie, as space is limited.

This family-friendly event features local food and craft vendors, the Beacon Farmer’s Market, environmental displays and speakers, and a children’s area with music by Dennis Mcdonough, Lydia Adams Davis, Spook Handy, Tom Hanford, Dan Einbender, and Jim Donnelly.

Entertainment on the main stage, powered by the club’s solar trailer, will be provided by Spook Handy, Hank Woji, Jann Klose, Emily Hurd, The Howland Wolves, Sarah Underhill, and Melissa Orquist and Karen Brooks. Come spend a relaxing afternoon on the shores of the Hudson, enjoy the music, sample local produce, and explore the exhibits. Admission and parking are free.
