Clearwater’s Great Hudson River Revival Festival is a great way to enjoy music, dance, storytelling, and family-orientated activities. On Saturday, June 15 and Sunday, June 16, you and your family and friends will have the opportunity to participate in the fun and watch over 36 performances, including Jeff Tweedy, The Mavericks, Ani DiFranco, and Rhiannon Giddens.
Aside from live performances, there are also events for children and learning activities. While clowns, mimes, and acrobats parade around the festival grounds putting on a show, you can take the opportunity to learn the art of juggling. After you perfect your juggling, you can visit the Family Stage for performances targeted towards children, or you can visit the Children’s Area to get your face painted and make a mask.
Environmental Events at Clearwater’s Great Hudson River Revival
The Discovery & Tideline Education Tents feature interactive educational exhibits and displays, including Hudson River fish and macroinvertebrates. In the tents, you will have the opportunity to learn more about the Hudson River watershed and touch a hog choker. Next, you can embark on beach combing and river seining, allowing you to see what creatures call the river home and then release them back from where they came. The festival also has opportunities to walk along the river’s edge and learn about the stories of found objects from a guide.
