50th Anniversary Hudson Valley Folk Picnic

Rain or Shine
Sunday October 2, 2016 11am – 3pm
Pete and Toshi Seeger Riverfront Park, Beacon, NY
Or the Beacon Sloop Club building
 
VOLUNTEERS NEEDED 9AM TO 5PM work with us for an hour or two.
 
Remember!  Bring a chair or blanket for the after songs, food or drink to share (no alcohol), instruments, ears, voice and peace in your heart. PLEASE provide your own reusable cup, bowl, utensils, serving spoons.
 
The Beacon farmers market is 10am to 3 pm at the train stop by the ferry dock and in the sloop club parking lot. The picnic site is in the park to the north where the sloop club festivals are held. In heavy rain we will use the sloop club building. Dress for cool and damp.
 
Park in the parking areas and walk into the park.  Do not drive up to the picnic. If the parking west of the tracks fills then you park on the inland side off the RR tracks back over the bridge and come through the tunnel under the tracks.
 
Look for the popup with the Clearwater flag. Leave a donation for Beacon Sloop Club and/or Clearwater in the popup. Drop off your potluck to the appropriate beverage, food or dessert table.
 
Unprepared? Stop at the farmers market for something for the table.  For a fork, plate or cup visit the popup with the Clearwater flag.  There you may borrow what you need and later return it to the bus bin at zero waste.
 
Extra prepared? Label your extra unbreakable reusable cups, bowls or plates to loan out.  You can leave them at the popup. At the end of the day the unused ones will be at the popup.  The used ones will be on the empties/return table.
 
DRESS FOR THE WEATHER, IT’S COOLER OUTSIDE ON THE RIVER.
