Party to get the party started
A fundraiser party for Beacon Riverfest V will take place on Friday, May 1, with live music, a DJ dance party, prizes and more. The live music lineup includes Bad Mother Factory, Decora and the Black Keys-White Stripes reBOOT rock camp.
Following the bands will be a DJ dance party with Vick the Bruiser and Meatball Jack. The party will be held at Southern Dutchess Bowl, 629 Rt. 52 in Beacon, with tickets available at the door for $20.
Beacon Music Factory and BeaconArts will present the fifth Beacon Riverfest outdoor music concert in the city’s Riverfront Park beginning at noon on Sunday, June 28. Beacon Riverfest is an annual rain-or-shine rock, world music and food festival held on the banks of the Hudson River in Beacon’s Pete and Toshi Seeger Riverfront Park.
In addition to being a music and food festival, this year’s Riverfest is partnering with Zero to Go and its zero-waste goal for all of the vendors involved, as well as pledging a portion of the proceeds to Riverkeeper and their work. The festival includes attractions such as the family tent, which includes high-energy, family-friendly performers, music, games, hula hoops and big-time bubble-making.
