12MilesNorth is proud to host its 7th annual Take Me to the River Music & Arts Festival in Hastings-on-Hudson’s Draper Park on September 7th.
The Take Me to the River Music & Arts Festival combines nationally acclaimed hip-hop, bluegrass, jazz, world, folk, Americana, and indie-rock music with the intimate feeling of a backyard BBQ. This “boutique-style” event offers outside-the-box art installations and activities, showcases a wide selection of local eateries, and promotes environmental awareness with Practically Green, an eco-expo of area green groups and businesses.
Liz Sipes Liebeskind, director and co-founder says, “The multi-generational nature of this festival makes it a special event for the town. We give it that DIY flavor, so there really is something engaging for everybody, whether you come alone or bring the whole family. The Children’s Area and many of the art installations are fully interactive, so there’s tons of room for ‘audience participation.’ It’s a celebration of the creativity of the entire community.”
This year’s performers include Black Violin, Outernational, Swear and Shake, Debo Band, Air Review, Spuyten Duyvil, Tim Armacost Trio, the HVBRIS Fire Dancers, and 20 more.
Advance tickets can be purchased at www.12milesnorth.org for $18. Tickets at the gate are $25. Kids 10 –17 are $5. Kids under 9 are free. Seniors and College Students are $10 with ID.
