Whether you arrive via Metro North or drive, Putnam County is providing trolley shuttle service between Wells Park and the Tri-State parking lot at Park & Morningthorpe Streets, as well as the Brewster train station. Park your car and shuttle to Wells Park, as parking is limited at the park.

Bring along chairs, blankets and sun protection. The park green is a natural amphitheater.  Plan to get arrive early to position your chair and secure an ideal listening spot for the day. Once “home base” is claimed on the green everyone is free to enjoy a full day of family activities.  Bring the youngsters to the Pavilion, where Apple Moms HV will provide free activities.  While the kiddos are being entertained, stroll around the park and visit the variety of vendors. There will be multiple vendors on site to keep everyone hydrated and nourished with plenty of local food, beer, wine and soft drinks.

Come by The Hudson Valley Blues Society booth and say “hi”!  They will be selling t-shirts, drink koozies and telling folks about keeping the blues alive in the Hudson Valley!

The day’s live music begins with acoustic opener, Brian Dallas Field at 11:45 am.  “Each act was carefully selected and I am really looking forward to introducing them to the festival attendees,” declared Judy Marano event co-producer.
