12 – 5pm Rain or Shine
Pete & Toshi Seeger Riverfront Park
1 Flynn Drive – Beacon (Riverside of the Metro North Beacon Station).
Our guests will hear live music and enjoy the best shortcake you have ever imagined — strawberries made with home-made biscuits topped with real whipped cream — while surrounded on three sides by the glorious Hudson River. There will be many treats such as strawberry smoothies, freshly made chocolate covered strawberries and other great foods. Many vendors will be on hand selling food and crafts.
The Woody Guthrie will be taking guests on free sails from the Beacon Harbor. The public may sign up for a free afternoon sail to experience the beauty, power and grandeur of the Hudson. Guests may sign up at the Beacon Sloop Club booth for one of the free sails during the afternoon. Sign up at the Beacon Sloop Club table starting at noon.
This event features two music stages, strawberry shortcake, smoothies and other treats, educational displays and children’s activities, and dozens of food and craft vendors. Those who are interested in experiencing the River first hand will be able to sign up for a free sail on the Sloop Woody Guthrie. There will be 5 sails weather permitting. And, sign up is available in person at the sloop tent starting at noon. Free Admission.

The Beacon Sloop Club is all volunteer and a non-profit organization. The BSC Strawberry Festival raises money for the public sailing program on the Woody Guthrie and other environmental education programs. There is never a charge for sailing aboard the Woody. The BSC meets the first Friday of each month at the clubhouse in Beacon, right on the river near the Metro-North train station, for a potluck dinner, business meeting and music. Everyone is always welcome.
Free Admission, (845) 463-4660 or (914) 907-4928
