Inspired by Pete Seeger’s desire to clean up the Hudson River over forty years ago, the Great Hudson River Revival (Clearwater Festival) initially helped raise the funds to build the sloop Clearwater, which has since become a world-renowned floating classroom and a symbol of effective grassroots action. Today, Hudson River Sloop Clearwater is a non-profit organization that sails at the forefront of the nation’s environmental challenges. All proceeds go
directly to support Clearwater’s environmental research, education and advocacy efforts to help preserve and protect the Hudson River and its tributaries and communities in the river valley – as well as keeping the Clearwater afloat.
The Pre-Advance period for tickets ends on Thursday, May 3 so buy now and save! Kids under 12 get in for free! Tickets and info at ClearwaterFestival.org.
