A full day of free music and art set against the backdrop of the Hudson – that’s what the second annual Haverstraw RiverArts & Music Festival promises.

On Saturday, July 11 from 12 noon – 6 p.m., Emeline Park at 16 Front Street, Haverstraw plays host to four national and local bands: Jamie Block (folk), Pablo Mayor Folklore Urbano (Modern Colombian groove), Mr. Breakdown (rhythm & funk) and Jawbone (Americana), and professional artists creating sculptures on-site from brick, clay and stone.

Other highlights of this community and river-centric event are Mario the Magician headlining kid’s entertainment, face painting, one-of-a kind crafts by Hudson Valley crafters and the best food trucks. As part of the celebration of the mighty Hudson River and its waterfront villages, environmental education will be presented alongside a guided history walk (in partnership with Keep Rockland Beautiful) that tells the story of “Bricktown,” the brickmaking capitol of the US.

Rain date: July 12.

A day long party with neighbors, music, art and the Hudson—ingredients that add up to an unforgettable experience in the Village of Haverstraw.
